PST (Personalised Support Team) South provides bespoke, person-centred care and support to individuals who have a range of different support needs which can provide you with an abundance of great experience working in a care environment. We are seeking enthusiastic support workers to join our Morley Avenue project in Mapperley, Nottingham.
Morley Avenue is a complex of seven flats, housing enhanced service users with learning disabilities, autism and behaviours that may challenge. The majority of individuals we support have one-to-one support twenty four hours per day on top of the core staff.
“This is a challenging project but very rewarding” – current colleague.
Your duties depend on the needs of the citizens we provide support for and may include but are not limited to:

  • Personal care

You may encounter challenging behaviour in this role so it is beneficial if you are confident to de-escalate and challenge behaviour. However don’t sweat it if you haven’t dealt with this before – we will provide the training you require to fully equip you. This will build your resilience!
