Are you a social care hero looking for a change?
During the current crisis we need Support Workers more than ever. It is an enormously rewarding job - lots of fun but hard work too. No two days are the same, and there can be challenges to be met and overcome, but it can also be fun and, more importantly, you will be making a real and positive difference to someone’s life each and every day.
THIS IS A FANTASTIC JOB, WITH A GREAT CARE PROVIDER.
We are working with a care provider in Norwich who are looking for an enthusiastic Support Worker to be part of their respite service, supporting adults with a learning disability.
No two days are the same, but you might typically expect to be on hand to help with day to day tasks, helping individuals gain important life skills and fun activities like swimming, horse-riding or even something as simple as having a drive through the Norfolk countryside.
This is a lovely service to work in, but as a Support Worker in this role you need to be confident and have excellent empathy - able to form attachments quickly and respond to rapidly changing needs of people you may not have previously supported, whereas in a residential or community service you might otherwise have the opportunity to work with the same people daily (although there are longer term goals in place for regular users of the service).
You will be assisting with medication and personal care, so we ideally want to see applications from people who have some experience of this, but this isn't necessarily a requirement.
This job suits people who are caring, kind and want to work in a job that is genuinely rewarding. You will need to have good communication skills and be comfortable making decisions. A basic level of English and Math is also required.
This Support Worker position is a full time role (39 hours per week) and it is shift-based work. Rotas are planned 4-6 weeks in advance to allow flexibility, but everyone works a mix of earlies, lates, weekends and sleeps. There is waking nights available for those that want it.
Applicants need to be a driver with own car due to location and shift patterns.
In return you will receive lots of additional benefits including 28 days holiday, Pension plan, a highstreet rewards scheme and lots of training (including funding for QCF).
For more information on this or any other role available through RB Social Care, give us a call and we'll be happy to help.
