Do you have the commitment and positive values to make a difference
to the lives of young adults with moderate to severe learning
disabilities, including autism, mental health and challenging behaviour?
We are looking for energetic, resourceful and fun loving individuals who are hardworking and keen to join our friendly teams at a time of significant development and growth.
You will be responsible for inspiring, motivating and assisting our
young residents and play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission
of providing high quality, person-centred care and
support to residents to take part in all aspects of everyday life and to
enjoy a wide range of activities. You must be willing to actively
embrace all aspects of the role including support with personal care and
domestic tasks as well as community activities such as swimming,
dancing, cycling, walking, arts and crafts and horse riding.

will value the personal skills and interests you bring
to the role and to the lives of residents, such as sports, outdoor
pursuits, creative arts and cooking; to name but a few!
You must be able to follow agreed guidelines and to work flexibly and
positively within a consistent, mutually supportive team ethos. This
will enable you to plan alongside members of the person's circle of
support to enable individuals to be happy, healthy and to be successful in achieving their wishes and aspirations.
In addition to opportunities for personal and career development, this
role offers unique and challenging opportunities bringing great job
satisfaction to those who are looking to make a positive difference to
the lives of others.
We have a great range of other benefits including:
28 days paid holiday
The Peoples Pension (applicable to eligible staff)
Great experience to develop skills which can underpin a successful career
in adult social care
Good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture
