Our client supports people with Learning Disabilities across England.
They now have an opportunity for a Support Worker to join one of their services in Milton Keynes.
As a Support Worker, you will make a real difference to residents' lives as you improve their daily living skills. Passionate about people, you will enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life and career too, as you gain the experience and training you need to progress with us.
This is a hands on job in which no two days are the same. You will promote the independence of the people we support by providing personal care, assisting with medication and manual handling, arranging activities and supporting a full range of daily activities including cooking, cleaning and days out.
Whilst knowledge of learning disabilities and complex needs would be beneficial, it isn't essential. What is essential is that you are:
Passionate, caring and enthusiastic
Flexible, patient and non-judgemental
A great team player with lots of energy
Able to demonstrate good communication skills
Able to complete the physical aspects of the role such as manual handling
This is a 24 hour service, therefore flexibility is essential. You will be working a range of shifts from 7:00/8:00 am to 2:00/3:00pm and 3:00/3:00 pm to 9:00/10:00pm, sleep ins or waking nights, some weekends.
Please note that working hours may vary from service to service.
Do you have a caring nature? Are you looking to make a difference to people's lives? Do you want to work in an environment where no 2 days are the same? Are you flexible with your working hours? Can you see yourself providing care to adults who need your support?
If you have answered a big YES to these questions they would love to hear from you.
Our client takes pride in the services that they provide. There is one vision that everyone shares, which is held together by their values. These include believing in potential, communicating in a confident way, embracing change and treating each other as individuals.
Running services on a not-for-profit basis, they invest every penny back into their services - and, their people. So, if you are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to support people with Learning Disabilities to live fulfilling lives - they don't just offer you a job: they offer you a career.
