What would you be doing?

 

The people we support need thoughtful, enthusiastic and caring people to support them.

Your days will be varied and supporting people with all aspects of daily life means we need you to be adaptable – one part of the day might be supporting people with intimate and personal care, using specially trained moving and handling techniques, the next could be taking them for a walk to the park then sitting with someone to support them hand over hand to prepare dinner for everyone and then helping them to eat what you has been made or supporting them to go swimming or accessing the hydrotherapy pool. Part of your role will be to help them live life to the full meaning no day will ever be the same

 

About you

 

The people we support need (and want) people who support them to take the time to get to know them – to learn to listen to what they say with both their verbal and nonverbal language. This might be difficult at first but there are members of the team who have known the people we support for many years and will help to support you.

Supporting people also means doing the things that keep us safe and the people we support need staff who can help them to take care of their health needs as well. You will be supporting in attending appointments and working with families to make decisions and advocate where needed.

We need people who are good communicators who can work alone and as part of a team, people who can problem solve and maintain boundaries in a positive and sensitive way.

If you genuinely enjoy making a positive difference in people’s lives, are approachable, motivated, kind and a good listener please do get in touch.

This position is subject to an enhanced DBS Check, the cost to be met by United Response. We reserve the right to close this vacancy early.
