7 hours a Week

£10.21 per hour

Closing date: Monday 27th April by 5.00pm

ECHO is a charity working with people with learning and physical disabilities and people with mental health issues in Herefordshire. ECHO runs 28 different activities each week in community settings across Herefordshire. ECHO is committed to providing services that promote choice, rights and independence for disabled people in Herefordshire.

We are seeking to recruit a Support Worker to work at our Cookery Club Project, Hereford on a Wednesday 9am to 4.00pm. The Wednesday Cookery Club Project provides day activities to adults with disabilities and or mental health issues. You will work with a small group (5-6 participants) where catering will be the focus for the Project. You will be involved in the development of the project from its current format to one with a wider community focus (as was previous to Covid).

You will be involved in the planning and delivery of sessions to ensure that a range of valued activities are provided for our participants.  The role would involve providing practical support to our participants to ensure they are welcomed, feel safe and valued.  You will help to develop their skills and try new activities to build confidence.  You may need to give assistance with personal care or medication. You will be involved in keeping good records, communicating effectively, and sharing information as appropriate whilst maintaining confidentiality and data protection requirements in line with ECHO policies.

At Cookery Club, participants are encouraged to: 

  • Learn practical cookery skills, food hygiene and healthy choices 
  • Learn how to work safely in a kitchen environment  
  • Be a team member in a work based setting 
  • Learn how to engage with the public

The project runs one day a week and the support worker will initially be required to work on Wednesdays. Some flexibility around days worked is essential as staff meetings and training may take place on the other days of the week.  Additional hours will occasionally also be available to cover staff leave; these hours may be taken as overtime or as TOIL (Time Off In Lieu).
