Job description

At Newcross, we believe everyone deserves the right to receive quality care in their own home!

Many vulnerable individuals in your community need health and social care to enable them to live a safe and fulfilling life in their own home. By working with us as a Support Worker in Weymouth, you can help them to make the most of every day.

In this role, you will be supporting a young man with autism, learning disabilities, epilepsy, emotional and behavioural difficulties within his own home in Weymouth. Working as part of a team of carers, you'll be required to follow a PBS plan and wider strategies to encourage the young man to live independently, go out in the community and identify new opportunities for integration, participation and inclusion. Our service user enjoys bowling, country parks, going out for walks and going to the shops. This is a real opportunity to become a true companion to the person you care for and really see the difference you make.

Available shifts: days and nights (waking and sleeping).

About you

To join us as a complex care Support Worker, you'll need to have at least 3 months of experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one, a valid Moving and Handling certificate and the right to work in the UK. You’ll need to be a real people person and always be willing to go the extra mile to ensure the best possible outcomes are met. Access to your own mode of transport is desirable but not mandatory.

Please note: To work in a care home in England from 11 November 2021, the post holder is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 unless clinically exempt.
