We are looking for Support Workers, with a current driving-licence and access to a vehicle, to provide care and support for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs in Harwich and Dovercourt.

The work can be challenging but the rewards of supporting people to achieve their goals make every day meaningful.

* Must be available to work alternate weekends.
* 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.
