Vacancy Details

Are you a respectful and enthusiastic individual looking for a career where you can make a difference?

Here at our Heysham service we are looking for Waking Night Support Workers to join our passionate staff team, providing quality person centered support to people with autism spectrum conditions and additional learning disabilities, mental health needs and complex behaviours.

Support Worker Duties:

• Providing support, information and guidance to service users,
• Maximising service user outcomes by encouraging personal development and independent living skills,
• Empowering service users and promote their rights,
• Collaborating with service users, families and involved professionals to provide a consistent and coordinated service,
• A willingness to work flexibly, including evenings and weekends, to meet the needs of the service.

Previous experience is not required, as full training is provided. This position is ideal for people looking to develop both personally and professionally. You will have the choice to be paid weekly or monthly.

We are a passionate, inclusive and anti-racist organisation. We embrace diversity and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and cultures. As a Disability Confident Employer we welcome applications from people with a disability, and as a proud Stonewall Diversity Champion we actively encourage applications from the LGBT+ community.

We would encourage you to apply to us even if you have not yet had your COVID 19 vaccine. You will be required to have your first COVID 19 vaccine prior to your interview and your second vaccine before you start work with us. This time will be used to complete post interview recruitment checks. Applicants who are unable to receive the vaccination on medical grounds are still welcome to apply with provision of their official NHS COVID pass letter of medical exemption.

We would encourage candidates to apply to this post as soon as possible. If we receive a large number of applications we may process these prior to the deadline. We will be interviewing for this role as suitable applications are received and may close this role before the closing date upon a successful candidate being appointed.
