Job Description

This is far from a boring office job!

A brilliant opportunity has arisen to support nine adults with mixed levels of learning disability in a welcoming and homely Supported Living house in Clevedon, North Somerset. This is a permanent, part-time role for 30 hours per week.

The folks here are looking for a range of support and some are quite independent. They love going to town, shopping, visiting cafés for coffee and cake, attending the Day Centre and sometimes occasional outings to the cinema and bowling. They are a very sociable and active crowd and have no specific personal care requirements.

Please note, this post requires sleep-ins.

If you`re looking for a boring, sitting at a desk office job, then this role isn`t for you! However, if you`re someone who is really keen on improving the lives of these lovely individuals, so they can live the life that they choose and certainly deserve, please click the pink `Apply` button below to begin the application process. We very much look forward to hearing from you!
