Would you like to finish work each day knowing you have made a difference?
We are looking for compassionate, keen and caring individuals to join our team of Relief Support Workers to support a number of individuals in Winchester.
Your day as a Relief Support Worker will depend entirely on who you support, and trust us, there really are no limits to the interests, passions,hobbies and activities that the people we support enjoy.
Each day will be entirely different depending on who you support, and everyone has their own requirements. Some of the people that we support within our Winchester services are very independent and could really benefit from a guiding hand to support them with their living skills when it comes to shopping, meal planning and going out into the community.
There are also people who we support who will need their Support Worker to be a little bit more involved - particularly when it comes to personal care and supporting them with medication.
All of our services in Winchester are within walking distance of each other and the great thing about being on our Relief Team is that you will have variety in your job and the opportunity to connect with, and spend time with lots of the lovely people that we support!
Being a support worker isn't just about making day to day life good, it's about creating days that are spectacular! If you would like to:
· Go home after work knowing you have made a positive difference to someones life.
· Work flexibly on our relief bank where we have arrange of shifts available to suit you.
· Have access to award winning, paid for training and career opportunities.
Support workers must be flexible in the hours they can work, as support can be required 24 hours a day. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week, weekends and bank holidays with sleep-ins as well.
One of the most amazing things about being a Support Worker is that anyone can do it! As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we will support you with progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
