The Role

Your duties and responsibilities will generally change day-to-day depending on the needs of the service users and therefore you must be adaptable to change. As a brief overview, these may include but are not limited to:

  • Providing personal care
  • Helping with domestic duties (e.g. cooking)
  • Being a great listener and providing emotional support
  • Administering medications
  • Helping the service users to access work, education or training.

You will support our service users to live as independently as possible and enjoy bringing a smile to their faces. You will be patient, understanding and have the ability to be able to nurture challenging behaviour in the right way. For example, you may have to use restraint with a service user – but don’t worry if you haven’t got experience, we will provide all the training you require.

So you have got to this point, now the important question… Does this sound like the role for you?

Previous experience of working with adults with social, emotional and mental health disorders is beneficial. However, full training and development will be provided. If this sounds like you – you’ll be a great addition to our friendly team!
