About the role:
As a Support Worker at Hft you’ll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible. In this role, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives; creating flexible services that meet their needs and always looking for the best way of doing things.
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.
Due to the location, being a driver with your own transport is preferable but not essential.
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 or autism, 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:
Hft 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.
