Start your day knowing you'll make a difference - join our team of Support Workers in Mulbarton, near Norwich, Norfolk and create a positive difference that improves the life for the people we support.

We are looking for people who share our values and can support someone to have the life they want to live. In Mulbarton we are supporting a gentleman in his 60's within his own bungalow with conservatory. He has his own enclosed garden and full driveway parking which his Support workers can use. This gentleman is non-verbal and requires support with personal care including assistance with shaving and washing. Minimal manual handling is involved but administrating oral medication is required.

The successful applicant will be required to work four waking night shifts a week, shift times are 22:00 start to 07:00 finish. As a Support Worker on a waking night duty, you will be supporting this gentlemen to bed and making sure he is safe throughout the night. You may have to deal with various personal care requirements and would be required to keep him engaged/entertained if he is awake (he usually sleeps for four to six hours a night).

You will need to be a driver with a car to get to the property as this is a rural location and the gentleman has his own car to enable him to go out.

"Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010."

In response to the unprecedented events we are currently experiencing due to the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19, at this time we will be conducting our interviews via video calls

Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme 2019.
