We are looking for Support Workers in Skellingthorpe & Metheringham to cover various shifts from full time, part time and relief to suit you. We offer fantastic benefits, training and a great team environment.
We are looking for people who share our values and can support someone to have the life they want to live.
We’re looking for support workers to work across two services. In one service you will support a lady who has behaviours that challenge in her own home; she is determined and fairly independent, liking to do as much as possible on her own. She likes to shop, go swimming & the gym, pubs, discos and visiting garden centres, so when possible to resume such activities you’ll accompany her. She is also into animals, cooking and bike riding.
She uses a wheelchair and a Sara Steady to get around outside so there will be elements of manual handling. There will be the need to support with the full extent of personal care on occasion.
In the other service we support two ladies and three gentlemen in their own home. One gentleman is very able and has capacity to go out on his own, whilst the other adults in the house require more support with their everyday needs so personal care and manual handling will be a requirement for the role. They love to watch TV, listen to music, play chess and board games and doing jigsaws. When able to resume; to also go to the cinema, meals out at the pub, concerts, holidays and the theatre.
Shifts for both services will be fitted around the people we support and will include sleep ins and waking night shifts; this can be discussed at interview.
To be considered for this role you will need to have a full UK/EU driving licence.
“Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010.”
