Support Worker - Westcliff-On-Sea, Essex - Various hours
Have you dreamt of swimming with Dolphins? Do you know the chorus to Let it Go? If you can answer yes to these questions, then you`re going to get on so well with the people we support.
We are currently looking for support workers in Westcliff-On-Sea. You will be supporting a unique group of 7 adults who have a learning disability.
Everyone has their own requirements but the type of support you will provide will be around shopping, cooking, eating and drinking, laundry, personal care, finances, medication and administration. You will also support them to organise activities and access the community, to socialise and for leisure, as well as to attend health appointments.
Being a support worker isn`t just about making day to day life good, it`s about creating days that are spectacular! Each day will be different but on a spectacular day you could be planning a trip to Venice, visiting the beach, playing rugby, or even fulfilling a dream such as travelling on the orient express. Creating a spectacular day really makes being a support worker even more of an amazing job.
Have a look at the attached additional information, which is a profile created by the people we support. This will give you an idea of what they need from you.
Support workers must be flexible in the hours they can work, as support can be required 24 hours a day. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week, weekends and bank holidays with sleep-ins as well (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements).
One of the most amazing things about being a Support Worker is that anyone can do it! As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we will support you with progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
