Are you seeking a varied, new and exciting role within the care industry? Our client promise to listen and provide an abundance of opportunities to enable you to develop as a Support Worker. Bring your personal values and apply today!
Southwell Road East is a Residential Care Home for adults living with learning disabilities and mental health disorders. Their service and colleagues are committed to making a difference in the lives of transitioning adults through their drive for excellence and positive outcomes. As a team, they are reliable, resilient and empathetic in their service delivery and approach when providing person-centred support. They have a couple of exciting opportunities for personable Support Workers to join us at their Rainworth project in Nottinghamshire!
They have free car parking on site if you have your own form of transport or the project is easily accessible by public transport (Buses 141 and 28 run every 10 minutes).
Support Worker Responsibilities:
Your duties and responsibilities will change day-to-day depending on the needs of the service users because the support we provide is person-centred. To give you a flavour of the role, these may include but are not limited to:
- Providing personal care
- Helping with domestic duties (e.g. cooking, meal preparation and cleaning)
- Being a great listener and providing emotional support
- Administering medications
- Helping the service users to access work, education or training.
- Helping the service users access the wider community
Support Worker Requirements:
They believe everyone deserves to be valued and treated with dignity and respect. You will support their service users to live as independently as possible. This role is challenging and therefore requires patience, understanding and the ability to be able to nurture challenging behaviour. For example, you may need to use physical restraint with a service user – but don’t worry, full training will be provided!
You will be reliable, adaptable, a team player, willing to learn and have excellent people skills. They aim to make a positive impact every day! Previous experience of working with adults with social, emotional and mental health disorders is beneficial. However, full training and development will be given to individuals willing to gain experience in this field. If this sounds like you – you’ll be a great addition to their friendly team!
It is essential that you are flexible and are able to work varied shifts on a rota basis which includes early and late shifts, weekends, bank holidays, night working and sleep-ins. You will receive a bonus for waking night shifts and double time is paid for Christmas and New Year shifts. Additionally, an allowance is paid for sleep-ins because we appreciate the time you put in!
