Job Description

Support Worker

Tyne and Wear, Newcastle

Permanent Contract, Full Time (37.5 hpw)

Salary from £18,576 per annum (pro rata) negotiable based on skills and experience

Plus, brilliant benefits!

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

We have a fabulous opportunity for new colleagues to join our awesome team. We support our brilliant customers who have Learning Disabilities and live in one of our 14 ‘Independent Living Services’ in Newcastle City. Our customers have varying needs, and many are supported in a physical as well as practical way to live their best lives.

You’ll support our customers to live their day to day lives as independently as possible. The team will tell you that no two days are ever the same because everything we do is “person centred” around our customers. You might be supporting them to attend college, help around the house or attend a social event like the Cinema or a Gig. We even help customers to go on holiday! Like our team, we’re sure you’ll find the role ever so rewarding!

You’ll play your part by supporting our customers through their bespoke care plans. This means that you will help with our customers personal care which could including support with changing, assistance with bathing and dressing, administering medication and moving and handling your customers.

About our team

Our team describe themselves as really friendly and approachable. In fact, when new members have joined us, it’s been said that they felt welcomed from day one! You really want to join a team that is as fab and team spirited as ours!

We’re also super passionate about supporting customers and celebrating their achievements. To us were not just a team we are a ‘work family’. Our brilliant managers at the services have a wealth of knowledge and experience with Homegroup and some have taken advantage of our learning and development and successfully worked their way up to become a Client Service Manager within Homegroup! We can’t wait to support you into your role, we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!

Working hours

We provide 24-hour support to our customers each day and every day. You’ll work on a rota basis and take your turn working days, evenings, weekends and bank holidays. In this role you’ll work during the twilight hours doing waking nights work. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!

About you

You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds. You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively.

We help change our customer’s lives for the better. You’ll play your part by assisting in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, and their needs and aspirations. You’ll work with our Senior Support Workers and external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers. We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!

If you’re not the biggest fan of technology, that’s not a problem to us. You do need to know that we are quite a high tech company and most of our application process and mandatory learning are online. However we’re glad to support you, if you need help.

It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before and have completed the Care certificate or Diploma Level 2, however, it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!

As this is a community based role, you’ll need to travel around to spend time with your customers. You could do this role using public transport, or if you drive and have access to a car that would also be amazing! (we pay your 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.
