Are you looking for a job where you can really make a difference?

We have an exciting opportunity for support workers to join the teams at this residential service in Tuscany, supporting up to 7 residents with learning disabilities, autism, communication difficulties and challenging behaviour.

You will be providing support for day-to-day living - social activities, sports and hobbies, holidays etc along with support for general household duties such as cooking and cleaning. You may also be expected to undertake personal care.

NOTE: A bonus of up to £500 is available to staff who successfully complete their six month probation period at this service.

About Us
CMG is a leading provider of care and support for adults with learning disabilities and associated complex needs, including autistic spectrum conditions, mental health needs, challenging behaviour, profound and multiple learning disabilities and epilepsy.

The people we support live in homely, family-like residences, and are encouraged to participate fully in the local community.

Please note, we are not an agency - we manage our own services, and you will have full access to our training, benefits and career progression opportunities.

About you
Experience in support work is a bonus, but is not essential for support workers, as full training is given. We just ask that you share our passion for ensuring that "every moment has potential" in the lives of the people we support.

You will need to be happy to work shifts - including weekends and bank holidays, occasional sleep-in shifts and also undertake personal care.

Why work for CMG?
In addition to your salary, our benefits package includes:
- a pension scheme
- paid annual leave (28 days including bank holidays)
- childcare vouchers
- reward/recognition schemes
- a generous staff discount scheme
- financial support to attain your Diploma in Health & Social care.

We also have excellent opportunities for career progression.

Some care providers expect you to travel between your clients and only pay you for the time you are actually working. At CMG, you will work at one service, allowing consistency for both you and the people we support, and you will be paid for your full shift (full time staff work 5 x 7.5 hour shifts in a week.) Occasionally you may be asked to work a shift at a nearby service if a staffing need arises.
