Would you like to work in a small supported living service in the New Milton area to support 3 non-verbal adults with their daily independence?

This is a role for a fun-loving applicant, as the residents all have a fantastic sense of humour!

The residents like to go out into the community using their mobility vehicles, the location of the home is also not on a bus route so unfortunately, all applicants must be car drivers.

This supported living unit is home to 3 bubbly adults who need assistance with their daily living due to having learning disabilities and mobility issues. They need assistance accessing the community, with daily independence skills, personal hygiene tasks and their mobility issues where required. Each resident is unique and has specific support plans to assist them with their individual needs, abilities, and interests.

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking for progression. The client is able to offer full training to suitable applicants along with an outstanding progression scheme along with multiple benefits.

These include but are not restricted to:

  • Competitive salary
  • 30 days annual leave entitlement (including bank holidays), rising to 35 days
  • Pensions, including a money purchase scheme with employee and employer contributions
  • An occupational sick pay scheme
  • The opportunity of flexible working
  • 10% enhancement for working overtime
  • Paid training with financial bonuses for completion of awards and diplomas.

This permanent, full-time position is working 37.5 hours per week. There is also the option for overtime should you wish for additional hours.

Hours are generally based on early shifts of 7-2.30 & late shifts of 2.30-10pm. Mid shifts may also be available where needed. You will have a two-week rolling rota so you are aware in advance of what shifts are required, and so you are able to organise your social commitments around this with no last-minute bookings!

The successful candidate will be:

  • Patient, inspiring and caring
  • Be flexible in your working approach to adapt to the needs of the individuals in your care;
  • A strong team player, confident and motivated
  • Be able to assist with meal preparation, daily living tasks, medication assistance and all aspects of personal, social and emotional care. (Training can be provided)
  • Resilient, able to work proactively with challenging behaviour
  • You will have a willing attitude and be able to work as part of a team to encourage and support the service users in your care.
  • Problem-solving and the ability to think creativity
  • Willing and able to provide personal care to individuals
  • Individuals who value diversity, health, and safety and are committed to safe working practices
  • A great sense of humour!

Please apply now for the immediate chance to interview! You will have the opportunity to meet with the management team, staff members and the residents so you can get a feel for the home and the needs of the residents.
