Job description

Support Worker

They need caring and supportive people like you. Become a Support Worker with our client in Northampton, and make a vital contribution to your community.

Become a Support Worker with an established Care & Support provider, rated outstanding by the CQC in Northampton, and start making a real difference to people’s lives. Saxon Court, opening soon, is based just outside Northampton Town Centre, a ½ mile walk through the serene Victoria Park.

This will be an exciting opportunity for you to be part of the set up team for this new service. It will be home to 17 residents with complex learning disabilities and/or have a condition on the autistic spectrum with behaviours that concern and associated mental health conditions.

Support Worker Responsibilities:

Do you thrive knowing you’ve made a difference in someone’s life?

As these residents will be coming from either an institutionalized environment or living away from home for the first time, you will go on this exciting journey with them and play a big part in helping them integrate and live independently in the community. To do this, you will work with them to find out their interests and hobbies and plan activities accordingly, provide emotional wellbeing support and advice, encourage them to access befriending and advocacy services.

Time to draw on your creative and dynamic side…

No two days will be the same as you may have already gathered. Support could be anything from making friends, personal care, painting, bowling, reading, going to the gym, park, cinema; cooking cleaning, cooking tasty balanced meals or even watching football… you name it.

But, ultimately it must be what they want to do!

How great would it be to be paid to play scrabble or plan a holiday?

Although the role will be challenging it will also be highly rewarding and you would be making a difference in someone’s life and putting a smile on their face.

Support Worker Requirements:

Don’t sweat the small stuff:

You don’t need to have experience in care as we will provide you with the required training to help you fully meet the needs of the residents. All you need is common sense, a ‘can do’ attitude, be willing to learn and share their values as an organisation.

You don’t need to be a car driver as the project is only about a 5 minute serene walk from Northampton Train Station and the Bus Station.

Flexibility is key though for this role as the shift times will be reliant on what activity the residents have got on and when they want to do it. All shifts will be on rota basis and will be spread across weekdays, weekends and bank holidays. This includes nights and sleep- ins; a bonus is paid for waking nights and double time paid for Christmas and New Year shifts. In addition, an allowance of £36.78 also paid for sleep-ins.

About the company:

Our client is one of the largest locally-based housing groups in the East Midlands. They manage over 9,500 homes and house more than 20,000 tenants across the East Midlands in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.

They employ over 1,100 members of staff, and have a commitment to training and apprenticeships. They offer fantastic staff benefits.

Their annual turnover is over £80 million, and their properties are worth over £500 million. In 2013, they celebrated their 40th anniversary. At 45 years old, they are still going strong!

As an Equal Opportunities and Disability Confident Employer, our client welcomes applications from all suitably qualified candidates including those from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups and disabled candidates. As part of their LGBT + Allies Programme, they also welcome applications from members of the LGBT + community and encourage inclusivity in the workplace.
