Support Worker

Full Time / Part Time

£8.72 – £9.05 per hour

Would you like to bring a smile to someone’s face every day?

Are you a caring, enthusiastic, hardworking individual who would like to support an adult with a learning disability to reach beyond expectation? To encourage them to try new experiences in the community, make new friends and amaze themselves and their families in a safe, caring, well-managed and happy environment? Then this role could be for you.

At Reach Learning Disability Care we provide Outstanding one-to-one support for people (adults?) with a learning disability within Newark and the surrounding districts. We offer a round-the-clock service right through to just a few hours a week.

We are looking to recruit a number of support workers to work with adults with learning disabilities who have a diverse range of personal care and support needs.

We recruit on a values-based approach matching our staff with our service users using a wide range of criteria – not only skills and experience, but hobbies and interests too.

Here are just some of the activities you could support our service users with:

  • A trip to the cinema
  • Managing medication
  • Cooking
  • Personal Care
  • Finances
  • Shopping
  • Social events such as meeting friends for lunch
  • Walks in the park
  • Meal planning
  • Housework
  • Learning new skills
  • Building relationships

You will need to be willing to work flexibly to accommodate the service user’s needs as and when required. Shifts may involve early mornings, days, evenings, weekends, Bank Holidays and sometimes sleep shifts.

One of the best things about being as support worker is knowing you can have a positive influence on those you support. To get an idea of how much this means to those we support and their families take a moment to watch the video on our website.

In return you will receive

  • competitive rates of pay, 33 days holiday (including bank holidays)
  • 3 day induction plus shadow shifts
  • Service-related sick pay following completion of 6 months’ probation period
