Company Description
One of the most personable, nationally recognised care providers in the healthcare industry is looking to give the opportunity of a lifetime to people wanting to become a Support Worker and really progress into a career in Care.

The Role
As a Support Worker you will be, tasked with looking after the residents of the home, their ages range from 20-70 years of age, so the Services Users will come from vastly different backgrounds. The Services users themselves will have a range of different Learning Difficulties, Disabilities and Challenging Behaviours. 

You will administer medication (after being trained of course if you've never done this) and there is personal care involved.

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. 

Hours are on a rota'd shift basis, typically 07:00 - 15:00, 15:00 - 22:00 and waking nights of 22:00 - 19:00 however they can be flexible to suit your circumstances and there are always extra hours available.

Your role will be challenging but extremely fulfilling and the progression opportunities are endless. As you are working in the role you will have all of your qualifications and training funded for you and there will be a huge chance to progress and grow in the role.

Qualifications and Skills
You do not have to have any experience whatsoever for this position, the biggest thing is passion and attitude to helping other people. The care skills can be trained and qualifications earned however if you haven't go the passion for helping people you will not succeed in the role.

Many people look to get into healthcare and are look for the opportunity to step up into a role and gain their qualifications, 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 £7.50 per hour 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
