Job Description

Support Worker

Durham, Teesside and Sunderland

Permanent, Full time (37.5 hpw)

Salary £18,576 rising to £19,200 through length of service 

Plus, Brilliant Benefits!

Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.

Come and join our brilliant Central Resource Team! We’re recruiting across Durham, Teesside and Sunderland. We’re looking for enthusiastic and caring Support Workers like you (known internally by us as Support Worker – Level 2) to join our team, where we’ll provide support to services across Durham, Teesside and Sunderland. You’ll join our team, which is led by Lindsay, who has worked for Home Group since 2008, when she started as a volunteer here. Lindsay took full advantage of all the training and experience that the company has to offer to rise to her current position as Senior Client Service Manager.

You’ll be one of 8 support workers, who really can turn your hand to anything. This team has been developed to backfill annual leave for Support Workers in all our supported accommodation and community-based services in our area. We provide care and support to a wide range of customers, all with different levels of needs and abilities. This means that one day you could be working a late shift in one of our mental health services, supporting customers to learn the skills to live independently. You could then be on a day shift in one of our floating support services, supporting people with housing related issues.

You’ll be flexible in your approach, adaptable and resilient, thrive working with all types of people and caring in your nature.

It’s important to us that you have time to what you are really care about; changing customer lives for the better. So to free up your time, you’ll be given the latest IT kit, which could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online integrated IT system which means that you don’t have to be in the office as you can complete support plans on the go. You’ll also be paid between customers visit and for your mileage too.

About you

We would love to hear from you if you have experience delivering support to vulnerable people and have knowledge of safeguarding. We want someone like you, with the passion and motivation for helping vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. It’s important to us that you have the compassion and empathy to work with vulnerable people in a housing related social care setting and we do need you to also have good IT skills too.

As the role requires us to respond to the needs of the services across the area you will be flexible and willing to travel across the whole of the area at short notice in some cases.

You will be working on a 5-week rota which will allow you to see your rest days and we will try to plan the services you will be working in at least one month in advance. 

As this is a community-based role, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!

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.
