Support Workers â€" Sheffield

Part-time 20hrs per week

We’re looking for support workers in the Sheffield area to join us on a part-time basis, working up to 25 hours a week.

You will be supporting people with learning disabilities and autism to live the life they choose, and a part of your role will be to facilitate and engage in the activities they enjoy. These activities can include hydro classes, bowls, theatre trips, shopping, knitting and being around animals.

You will also assist with daily tasks such as full personal care, support with feeding, meal preparation and assisting with medication. Some of the people we support are wheelchair users so there will be some manual handling involved in pushing their wheelchair and assisting with transfers. Lifting equipment including hoists are available and full training will be provided.

You must have a full UK driving licence to be considered for this position.

We recruit based on values so whilst previous experience is always welcome, it’s certainly not essential as full training and support to obtain qualifications will be provided.

The rewards

Dimensions are one of the country’s largest not-for-profit organisations supporting people with learning difficulties, autism, challenging behaviour and complex needs and we are driven by our values. People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do.

To find out how you will be rewarded for your hard work and dedication, please see the attached job description for a full list of rewards.

At Dimensions we’re proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places to Work programme 2019.
