Do you love to ramble like Janet Street Porter or do you fancy yourself to be a bit of an AP McCoy?

We are looking to expand our team of dedicated support workers in Trowbridge who are currently supporting a gentleman called Myles whom has a learning disability. Myles is a young man who we support 24 hours a day (including sleep ins).

Continuity throughout the day is important for Myles, so shifts will consist of a full day and a sleep in. Flexibility is important as all our shifts will be spread across the weekdays and weekends.

There are a number of things that are important to Myles - in particular knowing what`s happening, who will be supporting him and that his routines remain consistent - who doesn`t want to be in the know? It`s also important to have a variety of hobbies to keep yourself entertained - Myles does this through riding (which also includes his therapy) and taking long walks in the countryside - what better way to hunt for the `Beast of Trowbridge`?

You will be required to support Myles in a number of ways. Some of these will include:

  • Setting up my skype to talk to my family.
  • Support with my Epilepsy medication
  • Marinating my personal hygiene and having you full attention when I am in the shower as I have Epilepsy.
  • Managing my finances and purchasing goods.

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 those within our services, we will support you with award winning training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

For further details of this role please click on the `additional information` attachments at the bottom of this advertisement - from here you will be able to read the one page profile of Myles, offering you more of an insight to who you will be supporting.

Enhanced DBS is required for each successful candidate.
