There’s no such thing as a “typical day” for one of our Relief Support Workers. You never know what you might end up doing.

Sometimes it’s challenging, but it’s always rewarding. 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.
You don't need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job - you'll get a comprehensive induction, full training and support along the way.
You but must be self-motivated and be passionate about promoting independence and active lifestyles.
Due to the rural nature of the area, a full, current UK or EU driving licence is preferable but not essential.
