Could you help John to have a great life?

We are looking for committed, creative and active people to join us to provide 24/7 support.

Support Worker
Ref: PAP2304b
Salary: £7.80 per hour
Location: Lowestoft
Various Hours

John has a learning disability and is soon going to move into his own home, it is the first time he has had his own place to live and it will be a big change for him as he finds his feet and becomes more confident.
He will need support to set up his new bungalow to learn to be more self - sufficient, be part of his local community and to lead a fulfilled life.

We are recruiting a new team of people to support John who will be moving to Lowestoft.

A wide range of working hours are available including days, nights and weekends and we can offer full time and part time hours including bank contracts

Ideally you will have
- Experience in providing support to people with a variety of needs, including people with a learning disability and complex needs.
- Ability to work flexibly
