Job description

As a Support Worker, you will based at two of our Learning Disability Schemes in South Gloucestershire between which you will be expected to split your working day, providing housing related support to over 20 customers with learning disabilities.

You will support individuals in paying their rent, dealing with low level anti-social behaviour, carrying out activities to support residents in building relationships with their neighbours and improving their environment, and ensuring a smooth running of the schemes. The two schemes are roughly three miles apart and you will be expected to drive between them on a daily basis. Access to a car and a driving licence is therefore essential.

In return, we provide a generous entitlement to paid holiday increasing with length of service, a pension scheme, a healthcare cash back plan, and great opportunities and support to develop your career.

At LiveWest, we believe in a home for everyone.  We own and manage 36,000 homes across the South West, from Cornwall to Gloucestershire. We take the time to listen to, understand and learn from our customers.  We focus on thriving as a business and employer, so we can deliver more homes and even better services.

This role is being offered on a full time basis, working 37 hours per week on a rolling rota, to include some weekend working.  

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable groups, and expect all colleagues to share this commitment. Appointment to the post will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
