We're recruiting for dedicated Support Workers to deliver care in the home for individuals in Yeovil. 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.

You make a difference!

As a Support Worker in Yeovil and the surrounds, you'll play a vital role in safeguarding and supporting the vulnerable people in your local community during these unprecedented times. You'll be assisting children with personal care, feeding and PEG care, meal preparation, clinical needs, posture care, social activities and any other services needed. You'll also get access to free virtual training opportunities and apprenticeships to take your career in whichever direction you want to go.

It is highly desirable that you have prior experience of caring for service users with Airway Management, Tracheostomy and PEG feeding, but we'll provide full training and induction.

Role requirements

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 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.
