Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme 2019.

We are recruiting for Support Workers in Worcester on full-time, part-time and relief basis.

Whether you have worked in healthcare, mental health, autism, with challenging behaviour or maybe you have a background in retail, cleaning and coaching, this could be the career for you. Dimensions recruit against values and not previous experience.

As a valued support worker, you'll be helping people you support to live the individual life they want, ensuring they have choice and control over the planning and delivery of their support. We are looking for ambitious individuals of a caring nature to work for an award winning company where we promote independence in a supportive environment.

We are looking for support workers who are enthusiastic and dedicated about making a difference and promoting active support.

We support individuals who enjoy a variety of activities such as hydrotherapy, cookery, music sessions, walks, cinema trips and much more.

If you join a community support team then we ask that you hold a full UK driving license and are willing to use your vehicle to support individuals to their activities.

We also support a young gentleman who has his own vehicle that he is supported to use so his team would still need a UK driving license but would not be asked to use their own vehicle to support him to his activities.

The Role will involve

  • Helping people to live the individual life they want
  • Helping people learn the skills they need to live the life they choose
  • Supporting people with their medication
  • Supporting with personal care
  • Encouraging, supporting and teaching to find opportunities in education, employment and leisure.

We believe anyone has the potential be a great support worker, no matter your background, as long as you share our values; respect, partnership, courage, ambition and integrity - that's why we recruit based on values and not skills or experience.
