Are you looking for a rewarding job supporting people with learning disabilities?
Why not join our friendly team in Witney? No experience needed.
We have a variety of roles at our service in Witney, Oxfordshire depending on whether you wished to work full time (38 hours per week); or part time, either 2 days per week (15hrs), 3 days per week (22.5hrs) or 4 days per week (30 hrs). Please let us know on your application which role would suit you best.
About the role
You will be working in our Registered Care service in Witney which is home to four adults with a learning disability and/or autism. They are aged between 40 and 60. We support people to spend time doing the things that matter most to them and to develop their potential through support, and activities that develop life skills and help them prepare for greater independence in the future.
The people we support in Witney have differing needs but all enjoy having staff who are fun, enthusiastic and willing to chat and sing. All like to go out in the vehicle for a drive, or be supported to walk (pushing a wheelchair where needed), out for tea and cake, lunch and local activities. Other hobbies and activities you'll be involved in include library visits, sensory sessions or drive to Kennington to drop and collect an individual from Day service. You will enable them to experience as much as possible!
You will support with full personal care, and one person needs help with eating. During moments of anxiety they may also show some behaviours of concern but there is full training and support given to help cope with these.
The rota for this service covers shifts across days, evenings, nights, weekends, bank holidays and sleep-ins (roughly 4 or 5 per month). There are two shifts:- early shift 7am - 2:30pm or 7:30am - 3pm and late shift 2:30pm - 10pm.
What we need from you
Although we welcome people from a social care or related background, experience is not essential, as we provide a full induction and free training programme, including the opportunity to gain nationally accredited vocational qualifications. People join us from many different backgrounds, it's more important to us that you have the right personal qualities and that you're willing to listen and learn.
It is essential for these positions that you hold a full manual driving licence which allows you to drive in the UK, as you will be required to drive service vehicles.
