  • Devised, reviewed and updated support plans, recorded events and observations and kept appropriate records

You will work with adults with challenging behaviour issues, learning disabilities, autism, dementia and other needs.

To apply for this care job, you will need to have a valid certificate in Moving and Handling, as well as the following:

  • Three months of previous Support Worker experience or healthcare experience in a similar role
  • Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement
  • Relevant training and certificates

You will be rewarded with a good salary, the flexibility to base your work around existing commitments, and a range of in-house training opportunities.
