Vista changes lives. We are the leading local charity working with children and adults with sight loss throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Whether someone is newly diagnosed or has lived their whole life with reduced sight, Vista's specialist staff provide a vital lifeline to local people.

We have a Night Support Worker opportunity available at our Applegarth Care Home situated in Leicester Forest East.

Vista's Applegarth Care Home is for people who have a visual impairment and learning disabilities. Each person is supported to make decisions for themselves, with the aim being to support each person to take control over their own life.

Our dedicated, highly-trained teams are committed to delivering an excellent standard of care. We have excellent links with the local community, and every person is encouraged and supported to take part in leisure, social and educational activities tailored to their needs, abilities and interests.

The layout of the homes have been designed with visual impairment in mind, and Vista's services are always on hand when needed.

You will be required to work an average of 20 hours per week over  2 nights per week (10pm - 8am) which includes weekends and Bank Holidays.

When rostered to work weekends and bank holidays you will be paid, at an enhanced hourly rate.

Previous experience of working with people in a residential or health setting is desirable but not essential as full training will be provided.

You will be responsible for providing a high quality of emotional, physical and social support to people who live in the Home, respecting and upholding the rights and wishes of each individual, according to individual support plans. This will include your ability to demonstrate compassion, adaptability and integrity.

In return you will receive a competitive salary in line with the Health & Social care sector, a 28 days holiday and a generous benefits package and investment in your personal growth with continuous training.
