About this Job -

We are expanding our team and looking for genuinely caring and hands on individuals to join our team of Support Workers at our Ross Dene residential setting.

We are recruiting full and part time support workers with experience in the care sector to work a variety of shifts including 07:30-14:30, 13:30-21:30 and 21:30-07:30.

This registered service supports individuals within the home and local community. As a Support Worker you will be assisting them to lead independent and fulfilling lives; the people we support are at the heart of all we do. A big part of your role will be supporting people to do their favourite things and try new activities. We ensure they reach their full potential – and of course we’ll make sure that you reach yours.

You will be supporting individuals with learning disabilities, mental health and challenging behaviour. You will encourage the people we support to live a fulfilling and independent life by assisting with all aspects of every day life.

As a leader in health care and support services for individuals throughout the UK, Voyage Care supports thousands of people. Across our services we support people to do various activities such as bowling, going to the cinema and on days out to the coast – so it might not feel much like work!

 

The individuals we support at this service enjoy a lot of community access, so confidence in lone working is essential.  We are therefore looking for Support Workers with previous experience who can hit the ground running. However we will still provide a full training programme that is specific to the needs of the individuals we support.
