Could you help some amazing people to communicate, express themselves and connect with the world?
We have a great opportunity for a passionate and dedicated individual to join our team as a Support Worker in Birchington. We have shifts covering 37.5 hours per week!
As a Support Worker you will support and enable people to live the life they choose: to make choices, to express themselves and live as independently as possible. Your patient support and encouragement will assist individuals to run their own lives as much as possible helping with personal care, supporting someone to rustle up some breakfast, do the weekly shop or visit a local café.
We also support people to take part in some our amazing arts and wellbeing activities - from dance to music making, swimming to going to concerts.
Being a Support Worker can be the springboard to your future career - and to all sorts of opportunities and management roles.
We also have casual (bank) opportunities in this area attracting an hourly rate of £8.30 per hour!
Experience is not necessarily required for this role as we are able to support you and provide you with an excellent induction. However, it is really important that you are able to demonstrate the right values and behaviours to enable you to make a difference to people's lives.
Flexibility is needed as working times do vary and will include evenings, weekends and occasional nights; we will however provide you with a rota well in advance so you can plan your social life accordingly. The early shift is 7:30am - 3pm and the late shift is 2:30pm 10pm. Drivers preferred.
