Do you want to make a difference to the lives of adults with Learning Disabilities and Physical Disabilities? We are looking for passionate people to support our client in Ebbw Vale. The home currently supports three female adults. There are varying levels of personal care and hoisting involved due to the physical needs of the ladies in the home.
Due to the needs of the adults at the home, you must have experience with Learning Disabilities and have a form of Moving and Handling training. This is something we can support with but you must be confident with hoisting once you have received the training.
Not only will you be working in the most rewarding sector there is, but you'll also be in control of when you work and where you work. As well as supporting this home in Ebbw Vale, you will have the chance to work at a variety of care services across South Wales (Cardiff and the Vale, Torfaen, RCT, Blaenau Gwent, Newport and more). We support residential homes for adults with Learning Disabilities and Mental Health needs as well as children's residential homes, transitional services and respite care for 9 - 21 year olds. We've got lots of other support worker jobs with these same clients. Why not take the opportunity to work with these homes on a flexible basis to see where your next permanent opportunity will be?
The home we support in Ebbw Vale generally require mornings, evenings or waking nights. This is similar to most residential services, although there are also sometimes long days and sleep-in shifts available which can boost your hours and pay! We do have other services who require various shifts so it is best to get in contact about what you are looking for in particular.
In an ideal world, you will have at least six months experience supporting adults with complex needs. On the other hand, we also love giving people the opportunity to experience a new sector who have supported other client groups within the Social Care sector but always wanted the chance to support adults with Learning Disabilities!
As a residential support worker, you will earn between £8.21 and £11.77 per hour dependent on what hours you work. You'll be paid on a weekly basis and have the choice of earning holiday pay straight away or accruing your holiday throughout the year.
