About the role 

As a Support Worker at Hft you’ll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible. In these roles, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives, creating flexible services that meet people’s needs and always looking for the best way of doing things. 

Getting ready for the day will include personal care to either male or female by completing their individual routines. Supporting at courses, activities and appointments and much, more means no two days are the same! 

Our values for Sea View Manor staff are that they inspire, empower and are passionate for the people we support. You’ll go to work knowing that you’re making a positive difference to someone’s life and you’ll be working in a team of skilled, dedicated colleagues who’ll support you all the way. 

We provide 24/7 support to some people, so this role would suit you if you like the idea of working shifts and hours that include some weekends, nights and Bank Holidays. You may also get the opportunity to accompany the people we support on holidays and attend training courses and other activities. 

About you: 

You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job - you’ll get plenty of training along the way. It’s great if you already have experience of learning disabilities, autism or dementia, but this is by no means essential. What matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people to live their life with as much independence, choice, dignity and control as possible. 

What we offer: 

We offer a range of benefits and career development opportunities. We’ll give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support along the way. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation we are committed to investing in our teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible. 

Join us and help us change lives.
