Would you relish the opportunity to make a positive impact on people's lives? If so, this could be a great opportunity for you to develop a career working with people who have learning disabilities and / or autism.

We have vacancies for full and part-time support workers at an established registered care service in Crownhill, Milton Keynes. No experience necessary, we will provide you with full, free training.
About the service

In Crownhill, two adjoining houses support a total of 14 adults of mixed ages and genders with a variety of interests.

We are looking for cheerful, motivated people to bring new ideas and experiences with them. At home you may find yourself supporting a duvet day: solving puzzles, building Lego, listening to music, dancing or watching TV. The next day you could find yourself taking a trip to the local pub, walking in the countryside or enjoying a meal out at a restaurant.
There is also a large garden and summer house located on site which everyone likes to use for activities, such as arts and crafts.

About the role
As a support worker you'll provide assistance with day-to-day tasks, such as washing and dressing. Some people may also require help with administering medication, peg-feeding and hoisting. We will provide you with full training and with day-to-day help and advice from your service manager and senior practitioners.
“The leadership, management and governance of the service assured the delivery of high quality, person-centred care. The staff understood the vision and values of the provider and these made sure people were at the heart of the service.” – CQC Report, April 2020.
You'll take your turn working shifts on a rota, including days, evenings, weekends and bank holidays. Shift times are 07:30 - 15:00 (earlies) and 14:30 - 22:00 (lates) approx.
