Would you like to help support people with learning disabilities to live meaningful lives and learn new skills? Our client is looking for professional, positive and passionate people to help provide support in their Delrow Community.

Our client is a national charity which supports people with learning disabilities. They are a home for over 40 people with support needs. Other people join the Community during the day to participate in their workshops. Set in a beautiful semi-rural setting on the outskirts of Watford, they have a farm garden, a bakery and many different craft workshops.

As a support worker you would support a number of people, each with quite different needs and personalities, with all aspects of their lives. Your day may be quite varied. You may be helping people with the practical aspects of their lives, helping them to shop, prepare meals, clean their home, understand their money, take their medication. You may also be helping with their social life, helping them to make friends and maintain friendships and to access and enjoy leisure activities. You would be helping each person to live their life in a way that makes sense to them, to exercise independent, choice and control, and to learn new skills and develop their independence skills.

The support workers work on a rota which normally involves some evening and weekend working and some sleep ins. However, we are able to offer flexible working patterns and part-time working and we do also need bank/casual staff.

You do not need any qualifications or prior experience of working in social care or with adults with learning disabilities (although these are helpful) but you do need the right values and attitudes. You will need to be person-centred in your approach, reliable and flexible, enthusiastic and committed about contributing to the wellbeing of others, and have good communication skills.

Salary £9.00 per hour plus sleep in allowance.

Closing date 25th February 2018.
