Full Time Permanent

We are looking for a Male Support Worker to join our Service based in the Conwy Area on a permanent, part time basis (16 hours a week).  There may also be a requirement to occasionally work in the Denbighshire Area.

Flexibility is a must as you will need to be available to work across various shift which will be spread across mornings, afternoons, evenings and sleep ins, weekends and bank holidays.

Due to the nature of this service, we are looking for applicants who hold a full, clean driving licence.

To be successful in this role you will need to have:

Good people skills

Ability to work to deadlines and within a constantly changing environment

Ability to complete paperwork.

A willingness to participate in sleep-ins is highly desirable

You will be supporting adults with a learning disability to do just the same things you and others do. This might be anything from cooking and cleaning, to going to the supermarket or taking part in leisure activities. You will help them to lead the life they choose. We focus on person centred support, tailored to individuals needs.

It is important that you have a good sense of humour; are calm and approachable; but possess the ability to be assertive when the situation requires. Promoting a calm environment without worries or stress is very important to the individuals you will be supporting; as is routine. 

What does a Support Worker do?

As a Support Worker you will be expected to provide an outstanding level of support that will help to ensure the people we support live a more comfortable, dignified, liberated and happy life.  You will have excellent communication skills and be a naturally caring and patient personality.

Typical responsibilities may include:

Supporting people to live independently – budget management, paying bills, housework, organising appointments and cooking delicious healthy meals.

Relationship building – supporting the people we support to understand the world around them and promoting positive relationships.

Community & Social Inclusion – supporting individuals to access and participate in their local community and social events to promote life skills and individuality.

Personal care – helping people to get ready for the day. This may include prompting the people we support to take their medication and assisting with bathing, showering and using the bathroom. Not all Support Worker roles include high levels of personal care.
