Waking Night Support Worker

logo

It’s not just a job, it’s a life experience. Join us and help us change lives.

About the role
As an Hft Support Worker you’ll be supporting adults with learning disabilities within your community. In these roles, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives, creating flexible services that meet people’s needs and always looking for the best way of doing things.

Waking Night Supported Living Workers are required to remain awake throughout the night to support individuals as required. You could be supporting someone with personal care, helping someone with their medication or just chatting and keeping them company if they are unable to sleep.

Sometimes it’s challenging, but it’s always rewarding. You’ll go to work knowing that you’re making a positive difference to someone’s life. You’ll be working in a team of skilled, dedicated colleagues committed to doing the same and they will support you along the way.

We provide 24/7 support to people, so this role will require you to work some weekends and Bank Holidays.

About you
You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job; what matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people to live their own life with as much independence, choice, dignity and control as possible.

What we offer
It’s helpful if you already have experience of dementia, autism and learning disabilities – but this is by no means essential as Hft will give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation we are committed to investing in our teams to ensure that they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support people with the most complex needs to live the best life possible.

Hft staff benefits include:- Apprenticeships – gain a fully funded Level 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care whilst earning, 20 days annual leave plus 8 bank holidays (pro rata for part time staff), a contributory pension scheme, life assurance, staff rewards, family-friendly policies, discounted mobile phone and car schemes and a confidential Employee Helpline.
