Heritage Care is a charitable organisation that provides a range of flexible individualised care and support services for people with learning disabilities, mental health support needs and older people.
We look to recruit people who both embody and share our values: People that always behave with integrity and that seek to inspire everyone they come in contact with. People that respect diversity and value inclusiveness. People that constantly innovate to meet the needs of those we serve and impact lives in a positive way.
We are looking for full and part time Support Workers to come join our new team we are building for our new service in Sidcup.
As a support worker you will need to develop warm and trusting relationships with people with learning disabilities to help them to lead fulfilling and independent lives. No two days are the same – you will be supporting the tenants to undertake household chores, including planning and preparing meals to supporting them in leisure, education and employment services inside and outside of the home on an as and when required basis.
Experience with working with Autism is essential. Experience of caring/supporting people with behaviour that can challenge in a paid or voluntary capacity is desirable, you will also need to have exceptional relationship building skills as you will be part of an experienced staff team working inside their homes. Excellent listening and communication skills and a positive encouraging attitude is a must. You will need to be able to demonstrate a good standard of written, verbal and numeracy skills as well as good basic IT skills. Most important is a genuine passion for supporting people with learning disabilities to reach their full potential.
You will be required to work shifts, including evenings, weekends and possible “sleep-ins” or “on call” duties.
