Are you a dedicated and friendly support worker that is looking to move to a reputable charity? Have you got the passion and drive to work in an environment where your support will better someone life?

Vacancy locations: St Austell, Wadebridge, Liskeard & Launceston

We have both full time and part time positions available working with adults with learning disabilities in supported living settings. Although this is community-based, typically you would only visit 2-3 service users per shift and spend around 2-4 hours with each person; therefore allowing you to build up a strong and lasting relationship with the people you will work with every week.

This position will involve supporting with whatever may be required to give that person the most independent and best quality of life, whether that is domestic tasks, developing life skills or social support. One day you could be supporting somebody to make a job application; the next day you might be accompanying to a hydrotherapy session!

Please note that all interviews will be held in Wadebridge at the local office.

Benefits to you:
- Support with specialist training including Makaton
- Help and support with QCF qualifications
- Great staring salary that rises both with qualifications and after a 6 month probation period
- To be valued based on your potential and attitude, rather than just your experience

Responsibilities:
- To work in a flexible way that supports the goals of our residents
- Willingness to complete training and qualifications to develop your skill-set
- Supporting with all needs of our residents, including personal care and domestic support

Requirements:
- Excellent communication skills
- Able to demonstrate honesty, openness and reliability throughout the recruitment process
- Flexibility in regards to shift patterns you can work
- Advantage - To have a Full UK Drivers licence

If you think you have what it takes to support vulnerable adults and make them feel safe and secure, and have experience with adults with learning disabilities then please apply or call (Apply online only) to discuss the vacancy in more detail.
