Do you want the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives?

We currently have job opportunities for Sessional Support Workers and are looking for people who can work as members of a team in helping us to provide direct support to people who have learning disabilities.

You will assist in delivering programmes of activities designed to meet the service users’ personal needs and help them in their personal development.  You will help to deliver a range of services including supported living, outreach, centre or community based support.

We are looking for people who can think on their feet, who can make important decisions whilst using person-centred approaches and who work with empathy and compassion.

Available shifts vary in length, covering daytime to evenings and weekends.

Experience is desirable but not essential and you will be fully supported alongside experienced colleagues during your induction.

If you enjoy a challenge and want to learn new skills we would love to hear from you.
