If you care for others without a second thought, and are looking for a rewarding career, where you can make a difference and change lives for the better, then a Support Worker at 1A Upper Brighton Road could be the right choice for you.
Whether you are looking for a new career or already work in healthcare through the NHS or private sector, you'll receive training to join the team, where you will be valued and supported, with career development opportunities available.
It's a career that you can take pride in while enjoying the satisfaction of helping people and seeing them improve. It's what delivering great healthcare should feel like.

You will join an inclusive, supportive team that works well together to provide care to people with learning disabilities. Whether you have experience as a Healthcare Assistant or Care Worker, you will use your knowledge and skills to help support people lead a valued and fulfilled life.
It can be quite a challenging environment at times, so a positive attitude, compassion, resilience and vigilance are important. But it is hugely rewarding to see people improve; being able to do something today that they couldn't do last week because of you.
