Vetro Recruitment are currently looking for Support Workers in Trowbridge. We are working alongside a support service for adults with Autism and other complex needs and have a large requirement for temporary staff to cover shifts. Although day shifts are available, most shifts currently available are waking nights from 8pm to 8am.

The houses will be split into a mix of independent flats, en-suite bedrooms and communal spaces, with a large garden space.

Each service user will have a personalised bedroom, their own care plan, and daily activities will include going out into the community, gardening, and staying as active as possible, dependent on the service users needs.

You will join an experienced staff team who put the service users' at the heart of all actions. The service is looking for someone to join them for temporary shift cover who has the same values and ethos.

As a Support Worker you will be responsible for the following:

  • Encouraging independence and supporting individuals to make their own choices
  • Ensuring the safety of the service users
  • Following care plans for each individual
  • Taking service users out in to the community
  • Participating in activities such as arts, crafts, gardening and day trips
  • Varying levels of personal care

Requirements:

  • Minimum 6 months experience supporting adults with Autism or Learning Disabilities
  • Experience of working with challenging behaviour
  • PBM training or an equivalent training course preferred

Benefits:

  • 28 days Holiday (including bank holidays)
  • Free Training

  • 24/7 support from our dedicated team of recruitment consultants
