If you have answered a big YES to these questions we would love to hear from you.

Job description

At Turning Point, we support people with Learning Disabilities across England.

As a Support Worker, you will make a real difference to residents' lives as you improve their daily living skills. Passionate about people, you will enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life and career too, as you gain the experience and training you need to progress with us.

Where will I be working?

You will be working in one of outreach services supporting a gentleman who lives at home with a family member. The gentleman has a diagnosis of ADHD, autism and a learning disability and requires support with his day to day activities and accessing the community. The individual is a very active man who enjoys leisure activities and loves to chat.

We endeavour to create positive family relationships offering a good circle of support. There is a strong focus on supporting individuals' lives in a person centred way which includes various activities, shopping, managing own budgets and cooking. We tailor our services to enable people to be as independent as possible.

This is a 24 hour position. You will be required to work the following hours: Monday 9am-1pm, Tuesday 9am-4pm, Wednesday 9am-3pm and Thursday 9am-4pm.

Role Responsibility

This is a hands-on job in which no two days are the same. Your duties will include:

Promoting the independence of people we support

Supporting a full range of daily activities including cleaning and cooking, days out or going away on holiday

Arranging activities in the home and in the local community

Developing residents' life skills and personal interests

Helping residents stay safe and healthy

Assisting with personal care needs

Manual handling

Supporting people with medication

Ensuring record keeping is maintained to the required standard at all times and contributing to service monitoring requirements

The Ideal Candidate

Whilst knowledge of learning disabilities and complex needs would be beneficial, it isn't essential. What is essential is that you are:

Passionate, caring and enthusiastic

Flexible, patient and non-judgemental

A great team player with lots of energy

Able to demonstrate good communication skills

Able to complete the physical aspects of the role such as manual handling where needed
