Thanks to the ongoing success of the current service, we are looking to expand our team of dedicated support workers in Guildford. We have various contracts available and welcome applicants that are looking for part-time, full-time and relief opportunities.

Shifts are on a rota basis, with an aim for our support workers to have every other weekend off. Shifts will include mornings, afternoons, evenings and sleep-ins. Flexibility is important as all our shifts will be spread across the weekdays and weekends.

At our Guildford Supported Living service we provide support to three ladies and three gentlemen allowing them to live the lives they choose to live. In addition to this you will also provide support to our Outreach services, at which we reach out to support those in the local community. As a Support Worker your key responsibilities will include assisting them with general household duties, such as supporting and encouraging G.M to do their chores - we all have them days! You will also be providing personal care, administrating medication and managing finances.

You will support the people we support in doing what they want to do in their local community, encouraging them to try new things and do the things they really want to do - including supporting K.M to get their hair cut and dyed. The people we support are full of life and thoroughly enjoy going out into the community and going out on day trips. Some of the activities they enjoy include arts and craft, going for meals and going to the weekly disco - who doesn't enjoy letting their hair down?

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

If this sounds like you, we`d love to hear from you!
