Great place to work, great people to work with, become a Support Worker with United Response in Easingwold.

Who we are

United Response is a leading national charity providing support to young people and adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs. We believe in championing the right of disabled people to live, work, socialise and participate in the community, free of discrimination and unnecessary boundaries.

Who we are looking for

We need reliable and passionate people to join our close-knit team of Support Workers, supporting people out in the community. You’ll help them cook, clean, develop skills and much more. We are looking for someone with common sense, craft-based skills, confidence, a sense of humour, organisational skills and a willingness to try anything!

Not got any experience?

Don’t worry! Those new to care will be fully supported. Our comprehensive training programme offers everyone – regardless of previous knowledge and experience – the chance to create a career they can be proud of.

What we need from you

You need compassion, integrity and to treat people with dignity and respect. You need to be reliable because people are depending on you. You also need to be a great communicator, both verbally and in writing and have basic IT and numerical skills. Drivers are preferable although not essential and you don't necessarily need to have your own car.

The benefits

The biggest benefit we offer is the chance to work with people who make you laugh and smile every day – in fact, in a recent survey of new starters, 84% said they would consider recommending a friend to join United Response. But if you need more convincing, here’s the full package:

  • Fully paid training and access to nationally recognised qualifications
  • Annual leave allowance paid monthly

So what are you waiting for? Apply now!

We will be short-listing and interviewing on a regular basis so don’t wait until the closing date.

The closing date is the 12th December 2016.
