Job Description

Introduction

If you care for others without a second thought, have had or are willing to have your Covid vaccine, and are looking for a rewarding career, where you can make a difference and change lives for the better and enjoy a £500 welcome bonus, then a Support Worker at 21b Upper Brighton Road could be the right choice for you.

As an experienced Support worker from 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.

We encourage and support vaccination uptake as this remains the best line of defence against COVID-19. As such, you will need to have had your Covid Vaccine to be eligible for this position.
What you will be doing

You will join an inclusive, supportive team that works well together to provide care to people with learning disabilities and autism. Whether you have experience as a Support Worker 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.

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.
