Build lasting relationships with the people you care for

As a Support Worker in Bridgwater, Taunton, Wellington and the surrounding areas of Somerset, you'll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the children in our care. This role is a chance to make a real difference to people's lives - without your support, they may live a life constrained to specialist units or hospitals.

Your duties will vary, including anything from assisting residents with their food and drink, following care plans and getting them involved in social activities. You'll be assisting with Epilepsy, Ventilation and Tracheostomy. You'll work as part of a small team of health and social care workers in the homes of our clients.

  • An hourly rate of up to £10.46, including holiday pay
  • Get paid instantly with Flexi Pay
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis

With Flexi Pay, you are able to instantly withdraw an advance of up to 50% of the value of your existing shifts even on weekends and bank holidays!

The requirements

With at least 3 months of professional experience, or experience of caring for a loved one, you'll be well-placed to apply. You'll need a valid Moving and Handling certificate and feel comfortable helping service users with limited mobility. The right to work in the UK is a requirement. In addition to your caregiving experience, you should be able to demonstrate occasions where you have exhibited our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness. We'll expect you to uphold these values when on shift. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.
