Are you looking for a new role in a rewarding care environment?

As a Support Worker in Oswestry and the surrounds, you'll get involved in delivering care to individuals with complex healthcare needs within their own home. You'll be assisting our service users with personal care tasks, posture care, feeding and PEG care, meal preparation, clinical requirements, social integration activities and any other services needed.

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.
