Join learning disability charity Brandon Trust as a support worker and discover a genuinely rewarding role with plenty of training, a competitive salary, benefits and opportunities to develop your career. You’ll support people with learning disabilities and autism at home and in the community to live life more freely. You don’t necessarily need experience as we provide full training. We have full time and part time roles in Exmouth, Honiton and Exeter.
About the role
You’ll join our friendly teams, enabling people with learning disabilities to increase their independence; there’s lots of variety. You’ll support individuals in all aspects of daily living; from cooking to managing finances. Supporting people with their personal care and medication needs is also key. As a support worker, you’ll also support people to do things in their community; from shopping and going on day trips to sport and visiting day centres.
If you’re new to health and social care, we provide full training, including the nationally recognised Care Certificate. If you’ve experience as a care assistant or care worker in a care home, you’ll discover we provide plenty of on-going training and career progression.
You’ll need good communication skills and a positive, patient approach. Respectful of people’s differences, you can build professional relationships and have a flexible approach. You can work 24/7 shifts including weekends and evenings/nights. A full driving licence is essential for some roles.
We offer flexible holiday and pension benefits. Other benefits include childcare vouchers, a cycle to work scheme and study bursaries.
Successful applicants for this role will require an enhanced DBS check.
We are an Equal Opportunities employer and welcome applicants from all sections of the community.
