Henshaws Housing & Support enables people of all ages living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities to live more independently. Whether in one of our houses, or in their own home, we provide support so that people can build skills, make their own choices and be part of their local community; develop connections and lead a more fulfilling life.
We are looking for two part time Support Workers to work across our residential house and supported living service.
Working as part of a team, you will develop sensitive practice in which the rights of the service users are respected and which develop individual opportunities for each service user to lead a valued lifestyle.
You may be an experienced care or support worker, or may be looking for a change in career – previous experience in working in care is not essential as full training will be given. The key to success in this role is that you have an interest in building relationships with our service users and take pride in seeing them take steps towards independent living. You will be a confident communicator and have a strong team ethic.
Henshaws will provide you with a full induction centred around the Care Certificate and will offer further training towards qualifications in Health and Social care. We are friendly and supportive and provide excellent benefits including generous annual leave entitlements, pension and all training needed for the role.
