Job Description

Having a driving licence is essential as you will be required to drive the individual's car.

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.

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 working in one of our supported living facilities in Barnsley or supporting people with mental health needs in their own home or local community. Our services offer support for adults with Learning Disabilities and individuals with mental health needs. We tailor our support to enable people to be as independent as possible.

Shift Patterns

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

Our mental health support will vary from a couple of hours here and there to shorter visits for pop in type support/ welfare calls.

Please note that working hours may vary from service to service.

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:

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

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
