We are currently seeking Supported Living Workers to join our friendly team in Cheshire and Merseyside to make a real difference to people’s everyday lives.
Our role in Helsby is to support a lady with learning disabilities in her early 30’s. The purpose of these roles is to help her achieve her goals. She has her own home and needs support in maintaining her independence. She likes to go out and about to museums and art galleries. To support her you will need to be cheerful, patient and understanding with good communication skills and the ability to support her to make healthy meals. You must be willing to take her out in her wheelchair, be available to work a varied shift pattern including evenings, weekends and bank holidays, and be able to drive her mobility car to support her with crafts and activities.
To be a successful Supported Living Worker having the right values, confidence and attitudes is more important than experience. We provide fantastic training opportunities, through a comprehensive induction programme which includes any specialist training specific to the individuals we support. We also support and encourage our employees to develop their careers through NVQ courses.
Flexibility to work shifts, weekends and sleep in duties is essential
