Job Description

Job Introduction

Do you have a caring nature? Are you looking to make a difference to people's lives? Do you want to work in an environment where no two days are the same? Are you flexible with your working hours? Can you see yourself providing care to adults who need your support?

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

Being a driver is essential as the service is not on a bus route.

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?

Hancox Close is located in the beautiful countryside of Weston under Wetherley. There are six individuals that we support who have varying levels of Learning Disabilities. The bungalow is purpose built and overlooks countryside and fields of horses. There are health issues such as Dementia, epilepsy, mobility issues, non-verbal communication and a requirement of lots of personal care.

Staff will develop communication skills and work in a person centred way to enhance lives bringing quality to everyday living within a well-established staff team.

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.

No experience is necessary, staff with or without experience will be given full training to be able to do the role to the best of their ability.

Shift Patterns

This is a 24 hour service, therefore flexibility is essential. You will be working a range of shifts from 7:00/8:00 am to 2:00/3:00 pm and 2:00/3:00 pm to 9:00/10:00 pm, sleep ins or waking nights, some weekends.

Please note that working hours may vary.
