Our client is the UK’s leading independent provider of specialist Education care services. Their aim is to provide the right support in the right home for all the individuals we accommodate.

With community-based residential care settings, as well as a network of supported living services, they support boys with autism, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health conditions, Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and behaviours that challenge. They also offer a range of residential and nursing care settings for older people with varying levels of need.

The School is a small residential service for 4 boys. As a service that provides specialist support to people with learning disabilities and autism we are looking for the right people to make a difference. The 4 people who live with them all require individual support in order to enhance and enjoy their lives and to reach their full potential. Located in the Penwortham area of Preston, close to the town centre with easy access to the motorway and local transport links.

As a Support Worker you will be a key member of the team, providing high standards of person-centred support and care to their service users. Through a creative and caring approach, you will build good relationships with both service users and their families, supporting service users in the planning of goals and in living as independently as possible. Both personal care and participation in activities are key tasks for the role, so energy and initiative is vital; experience however is not essential, providing you have a willingness to learn and the compassion and patience needed to support.

What we’d like from you:

Excellent communication skills

Effective organisational capability

Great team player

Flexibility to respond to the changing needs of those who we support

Strong “can do” attitude
