Company Description
One of the most personable, nationally recognised care providers in the healthcare industry are looking to give the opportunity of a lifetime to a Level 3 to become a Senor Support Worker in one of their homes in Devon. 

All service users and staff are extremely well looked after, with all qualifications funded by the company. They are affiliated with their own training provider and have regular training days as well as full qualifications.

The Role
As a Senior Support Worker you will be, as the name suggests, one of the more senior members of staff in the residential care home environment that you will be working in. You will deliver all care responsibilities of a Support Worker however you will be training on the job to progress to a higher position. You will receive 1 day off Support Work duties to oversee the service in the home, this gives invaluable experience towards becoming a Team Manager or Registered Manager.

You will receive continuous personal development and be provided with your Level 5 Leadership and Management award (should you need it). 

The home itself has service users who have a range of needs that you would be looking after, ranging from Challenging Behaviour, Autism, Anxiety Disorders and Psychosis. 

Your role will be challenging but extremely fulfilling and the progression opportunities are endless. The age range of the home is adults, from 18 to 50 in range and a mix of genders.

Qualifications and Skills
It is essential that you have at least your Level 3 Diploma or NVQ in healthcare and have experience in managing people, training and development. This position would suit somebody who has management responsibilities but is wanting their Level 5 Management course as well as continuous development.

Many people work in healthcare and are looking for the opportunity to step up into a role, this is the opportunity to do just that. There are regular salary reviews too so you will be earning whilst you get these qualifications and experience.

What’s in it for you? The good stuff.
Your salary is £17,000 with a pension scheme of 3%.

You’d be joining a company that is so invested in their staff and service users that they are partners with a training provider to continuously develop their staff. They regularly do autism fundraisers with all proceeds being spent on the SU’s for anything they require, such as iPads, day trips and equipment.
