Job Role

Position: Waking Night Support Worker 
Location: Filton, Bristol
Hours: 1 Waking Night per week, increasing to 3 Nights
Pay: £8.75 - £8.90 dep on Qualifications
Company: Health & Social Care, Charity 

South Gloucestershire Support Service is a small supported living service, currently supporting 6 individuals with learning disabilities and other needs. The waking night position is initially for one night a week (with the option for more some weeks), but this is expected to increase to three consistent nights a week after a few months as one of our current workers prepares for retirement. Our waking night worker supports only two of the people we support overnight, from 21:45-7:15. Some weekend working will be required, as well as some day working to complete training.

Working in partnership with the people we support, their family, 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.

Our Benefits

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. You’ll seek new ways of working by thinking outside of the box and being creative with solutions and 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.
