Full or Part time hours, permanent contracts
We're recruiting dedicated and compassionate Support Workers to join us to provide care to our client in Manchester.
You'll be providing care and support to a gentleman who acquired brain injuries in 1996 which resulted in the need for full-time care provision, therefore you must have some experience/understanding of supporting individuals with brain injuries.
You must have the right to work in the UK, be a driver with your own vehicle and be available for shift patterns which will include some 24hr-48hr shifts with sleep-ins.
You should be open-minded, accepting and willing to go out on adventures with the client, encouraging independence where possible.
More about our client
Our client enjoys socialising and attending support groups, doing arts and crafts and joining in with various community activities - which you will support him to attend. Our client can present with challenging behaviour and requires almost constant supervision in and outside of the home, therefore vigilance and awareness of risk and safety measures is a key part of your role, ensuring that the client and those around him remain safe. Our carers have in the past joined our client on annual holidays so we'd love for you to be open to this opportunity too.
How do we support you in your role?
We provide a comprehensive clinical training and induction programme, overseen by professional nurses, to ensure you have the skills and confidence to succeed in your role working as a Support Worker in the Specialist Team.
We are looking for people who have excellent people skills, are great communicators and can work effectively in a team as well as independently.
We believe that home-based care is a way of improving people's lives and within your role as a Support Worker, you will be responsible for helping them to continue living the life they prefer to lead within their own home environment.
As a valued employee, you'll have access to WeCare - our new employee benefits platform which offers shopping discounts and cashback from over 800 retailers, as well as access to our employee assistance program, Healthcare Cashplan, Eyecare Plan and a well-being centre to support you with your mental and physical health.
