About The Role

Your life doesn't stop at 9pm and neither does it for the people we support. Whether its going out, making a tasty meal for a friend or just catching up on a box set, it's our mission to encourage people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society. As a Support Worker, your role in enabling the people we support to achieve the extraordinary each and every day will be invaluable.

 

Our Bicester service is a brand new, purpose built, supported living development incorporating 6 individual one bedroom units where we will support young people with autism.

Working in partnership with the people we support, their families, our specialist support teams and external agencies you'll provide extraordinary support that improves the quality of their everyday life. Working with the manager, deputy manager and other team members you'll implement professionally designed and person centred support plans that maximise choice, independence and the achievement of individual goals, however small or large, each and every day. Your contribution to our mission, to encourage people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society, will be invaluable.

 

About You:

You’ll need to be patient and calm under pressure as well as sociable, caring and supportive but above all you’ll want to make a difference. Some of the people we support can demonstrate behaviour described as challenging so you'll need to be resilient and comfortable working autonomously and with minimal supervision as our night teams are smaller. But above all you will take personal responsibility for the quality of care and support delivered to the people we support, striving to always do what is right by them.

So apart from transforming lives what’s in it for you? You’ll benefit from working with a team of passionate and skilled specialists, an outstanding induction and training programme with on-going development and the option to gain formal qualifications as well as the opportunity to progress your career in a sector that genuinely offers careers for life. In addition we also offer a range of benefits including flexible working options, long service and recognition awards, including increasing annual leave and bonus incentives and company pension and life assurance schemes. And we don’t expect you to take your work home with you at the end of the day, in fact, it’s illegal!
