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

This is a bank contract, if you lead a busy life and want to pick up a few shifts here and there, this would be ideal for you.

Job description

At Turning Point, we support people with Learning Disabilities and mental health issues across England.

As a Support Worker, you will make a real difference to people's 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 supporting individuals at Sheldon Ridge Nursing Home for individuals with Learning Disabilities and challenging behaviour due to communication difficulties and other related issues.

You will work as part of a large staff team covering various shift patterns including rotational weekends and nights. All the people at Sheldon Ridge require full support with personal care, dietary, emotional and social care.

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.

Please note: in this service we support people with complex learning disabilities and there are high levels of personal care involved.

Shift Patterns

This is a 24 hour service, therefore flexibility is essential. You will be working a range of shifts from 06:45am to 2:15pm and 1:00pm to 8:30pm, occasional waking nights and some weekends.

Please note that working hours may vary.

Main Responsibilities

What will I be doing?

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

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

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

What skills and qualities do I need to have?

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
