Now recruiting For Support Workers in the Colchester Area ***

How do you fancy getting paid for making someone smile…?

If you are a positive, bubbly, out-going and enthusiastic person, with a genuine desire to add value to people's lives, then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for Support Workers to provide care and support, both for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs, and also for older people, in Colchester and the surrounding areas.

Personality and a willingness to learn are more important than experience, as full training will be given (in a state-of-the-art office in the heart of Clacton.)

As Britain's oldest recorded town, Colchester is steeped in history, with reminders to the past at virtually every turn. With excellent shops, a bustling café-culture, the beautiful Castle Park, not to mention the historic Castle, you can always be assured of finding fun and rewarding things to do.

So what will you be doing all day?

You will be supporting individuals to take part in and visit local activities, social clubs, leisure activities… You'll be helping People we support to go away on holiday, to have days out, and in doing so, will not only encourage the people we support to make decisions and choices about their lives and what they do, but improve your social life at the same time!

You'll be promoting dignity and choice, assisting with personal care where needed, and genuinely being the reason why someone smiles. The work can be challenging but the rewards of supporting people to achieve their goals make every day meaningful.

If you can be available and work varied shifts between 7.00am and 10.00pm, be available at least every alternate weekend, and want to become part of a team that encourages independence and enables the people we support to live a fulfilled life, then why not apply today?

* Should be available to work a variety shifts from 7.00am until 10.00pm.
* Must have an out-going personality, and a willingness to work across all services.

We offer a great range of benefits including an employee assistance programme, which provides independent advice and support 24 hours a day. We also offer a pension scheme and a retail discount package with some great offers spanning from holiday discounts to gym memberships. Our employees can also make use of salary sacrifice schemes such as Childcare Vouchers and Cycle to Work.
