Role Description

Are you looking for a rewarding role where you can make a real difference to lives of people with Learning Disability?

We now have opportunities for support workers to join our teams in Hastings and St Leonards. We support a number of individuals across several supported living services. There are a wide range of ages and abilities, offering a real variety in both personalities and experiences, and we work to clearly focus on a person-centred approach to support.

We are currently offering relief opportunities - giving you the option to work when you want to work. Shifts are rota based and will be spread across morning, afternoons, evenings and include sleep-ins. Flexibility is important as all our shifts will be spread across weekdays and weekends.

Throughout all the services, you will be offering general support such as preparing meals, financial support and personal care. A number of the people we support regularly enjoy going to watch live bands, having a drink and generally enjoying a night out - who doesn't enjoy a night out with friends?

As a support worker, all you'll need to have is a positive attitude and a desire to improve the lives of those with a learning disability. If you support the people within our services, we will support you with award-winning training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

Enhanced DBS is required for each successful candidate.


We believe that all employees are amazing and we wouldn't be able to achieve what we do without them. Here are just some of the ways we would value and invest in you.

  • Amazing Induction
  • Access to award winning training and development
