Job Description

We are looking for caring, patient and outgoing Support Workers to join our team who support 2 ladies across separate supported living locations. Driving is not essential but it is preferred as the ladies live 10 minutes away from each other so you may be expected to split your working day between both locations also the ladies enjoy trips out often and have great social lives.

At our other location we support a lady in her 20s who has recently finished education and is living at home with her mum and dad. She loves doing activities inside the home such as playing games, doing arts and crafts, doing her makeup, cooking and karaoke!

We have both full time, part time and relief hours available. This role does require flexibility as you will be expected to work a variety of mornings, afternoons, evenings, sleep ins, weekends and bank holidays.
