Job Description

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 Ewell Road House 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.

What you will be doing
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 because of you; being able to do something today that they couldn't do last week.

You will have access to the Elysium Wellbeing team, which is on hand to keep you feeling great; be it a chat, massage or group activities. Who doesn't like a free massage at work?

With a huge range of courses that will help you grow and succeed, if you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, Elysium Healthcare can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.

The shift patterns include working 7.5 hours a day between the hours of 7am and 10pm, 4-5 days a week, weekends on a rota basis.

We are actively encouraging male candidates to apply for this role. Ideally you will be driver and will have a clean and full UK driving licence as you will be using the company car to escort the staff and service users to the local destinations to support with the care plans. This is to accommodate the needs of our service users in the most efficient manner.

Where you will be working

Location: 89 Ewell Road, Surbiton, Surrey KT6 6AH

You will be working at 89 Ewell Road, a service which provides support for people who may be living with moderate learning disabilities with associated health needs, autism and behaviours.

Working alongside a multidisciplinary team, you will offer support to people as part of their care pathway. Whether it is moving from their community placement or a family home because they require more structured care and support.

Your aim will be to encourage individuals to lead a full and valued life, enabling them to live more independently through a programme of active community engagement, developing meaningful social networks and developing robust coping strategies.

Hourly rate of £10.45
Enjoy a £500 welcome bonus
The equivalent of 33 days annual leave - plus your birthday off!
Free meals
Wellbeing support and activities
