This is a unique opportunity to become part of a small team, working on a package of care and building positive relationships with the service user and their family.

Are you ready to play your part in the national care effort?

As a Support Worker in Bridgwater, Taunton, Wellington and the surrounds, you'll play a vital role in safeguarding and supporting the vulnerable children in your local community during these unprecedented times.

What we require

To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of prior experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. This will ensure you have an emotional and clinical understanding of what it takes to deliver home care.

You'll need to be an approachable and understanding people person, ready to become a key part of your service users' support network. You may need to assist clients with limited mobility, however, if you do not have a valid Moving and Handling certificate, we can provide relevant training modules for you to complete in the induction process.
