Whose life have you changed today? Home Group's Care and Support services change and save thousands of vulnerable people's lives every single day.

Within our inspirational Care and Support team, each individual colleague truly makes a real difference, working together to support our customers to make aspirational and life-long changes.

Join us and see what an amazing difference you can make at work every single day! We have a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic and caring Support Worker like you (known internally by us as Support Worker – Level 2) to join our service which provides support to customers who have various support needs including mental health, domestic abuse, learning disabilities, substance misuse and offending behaviour.

It can be extremely rewarding to see the impact the support we provide has on someone’s life.

An experienced Support Worker or Assistant Project Worker, you’ll help change lives for the better by assisting in delivering identified tasks based upon customers’ individual needs and aspirations, as identified within their personal support plans.

You’ll liaise with external agencies and work closely with our Senior Support Workers too in assessing and engaging support for our customers. Together you will really make a difference, empowering our customers to develop the independent living skills they need to successfully move on with a positive future.

It’s really important to us that you have time to what you are really care about; changing customers lives for the better. So to free up your time, you’ll be given the latest IT kit, which could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online integrated IT system which means that you don’t have to be in the office as you can complete support plans on the go. You’ll also be paid between customers visit and for your mileage too.

A bit about you:

We want someone like you, with the passion and motivation for helping vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. To flourish in the role, you’ll have a practical understanding of safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality and support plans. You’ll be great at managing your own time, working on your own initiative, have strong communication skills and be able to positively influence people from all different backgrounds.

It’s important to us that you have the compassion and empathy to work with vulnerable people in a housing related social care setting and we do need you to also have good IT skills too. We’ll be impressed if you have knowledge of this sector, our customer group and experience of working with hard to reach customers, but don’t worry as we’ll also develop your skills in this too.

This is a brilliant opportunity to work as part of a hardworking, supportive and caring team. Collectively you will support customers to achieve their goals and aspirations but you should be confident working alone and using your own initiative.

This role involves working on a rota (shifts are 07.30-15.30 or 15.30) and taking turns working weekends and bank holidays. We need you to have a driving licence, car and car insurance business cover as some travelling will be required. If you are successful, we need you to have an Enhanced Disclosure Check through the Disclosure and Barring Service which we’ll pay for.
