Job Role

Waking Night Male Support Worker 

Location: Kennington OX1, Oxfordshire

Salary: £24,375 per annum (£12.50 per hour) + Benefits

Hours: Flexible Contacted hours from 8 to 37.5 hours a week 

We are looking for highly experienced Male Support Workers. SeeAbility are a well established Charity for Learning Disability, autism and sight loss/difficulties.

Are you looking to be a part of an amazing specialist team to support a young man and help him at the beginning of the next chapter of his life, starting a new journey outside of an institutional setting into his own home where he can thrive, be happy and achieve things he never thought possible. Yes, there will be the need for some rules to start off with, but these will need to be based on how to support the person to be the absolute best he can be,  not to curb their lust for life permanently. To help with this you will need to work in partnership with him, his family and a wide range of professionals to help him enjoy the things he loves, such as getting out in his community, building connections and hanging out with friends and family.

You’ll be part of a team that includes support from a positive behaviour consultant. This will provide you with the additional expertise needed to create exceptional person centred support and overcome any challenges that may get in the way of the progress that is needed. Your day to day management will come from an experienced, passionate leader who will work alongside you. This will assist you with your own leadership and interactions that will in turn enable the person to move forward in his life creating community connections, friends, hobbies, interests, and work.  Being passionate, creative and values led will really help you in achieving the small and bigger goals and outcomes that we all see as part of a safe, happy, healthy and empowering life.
