Job Description

Support Worker

Ashford, Kent

Permanent, Full & Part Time hours available (37.5 hours per week if Full Time)

Salary circa £23,000 per annum (pro rata) based on skills and experience

Plus, sleep in enhancements and brilliant benefits!

Delivering support with a difference. That’s when it hits home

We have a rewarding opportunity for a confident, positive and ambitious person to join our Transforming Care team, helping our brilliant customers to live a fulfilling life in their own home within the local community.

You will be assisting our wonderful customer who is a gentleman in his 30’s with a forensic history. He is looking for a calm, relaxed and confident team with good communication skills to assist him with his daily living activities. He has a wide range of interests from playing board games and cooking, to walking. He is a big fan of Doctor Who and absolutely loves Manchester United Football Club. So much so that he is very eager to attend a game in the future, so if you too love the Doctor and happen to be a fellow red devil, then you’ll get on brilliantly.

You’ll be part of a team of Care Workers making sure our customer is person-centred, recognising someone’s past life and experiences and building on their strengths. With your Team Leaders and Deputy Manager, you’ll be assisting him to enjoy the best quality of life and live as independently as possible. Each day is totally different, so if you’re looking for a calm stable job, then this is not the job for you!

About our team

You’ll be working alongside our fantastic Regional Transforming Care Manager, and Philippa our Deputy Manager, as well as our brand-new team of PBS Workers and clinical colleagues who are super passionate about our customers reaching their goals and celebrating their achievements.

Where you’ll work

You’ll work primarily with our one male customer in his own home in Ashford, as well as working with him in the community. But there may be opportunities to work with our other customers in Kent! You can use public transport to help our customer and we’ll pay your expenses to cover this!

Working hours

Our customer needs 24/7 help to meet his needs, so you’ll take your turn with your team working on a rota. Shifts available include days, evenings, weekends, bank holidays or waking nights. You may also be required to do sleep ins in which an enhancement will be paid. As we’re asking you to be flexible for our customer, we’ll also give you the time back that you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!

About you

You’re passionate and motivated and will impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing our customer to work towards his goals and aspirations. You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, daily care plans, alongside working collaboratively. You’ll also be willing to provide personal care when required, so some experience in physical assistance to help wash, (shower or bath) dress, oral care is also highly desirable.

You’ll have relevant experience and it would also be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are important to us. You’ll ideally hold Level 2 or 3 in Health and Social Care or equivalent or be willing to study for this which we’ll guide you with.

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
