Overview
Join learning disability charity Brandon Trust as a support worker and discover a genuinely rewarding role with plenty of training, support, a competitive salary, benefits and opportunities to develop your career. You’ll support people with learning disabilities and autism at home and in the community to live life more freely. You don’t necessarily need experience as we provide full training.

We have two full-time roles in Stonehouse, working flexibly across a rota.

About the role
You’ll join our friendly teams, enabling people with learning disabilities to increase their independence; there’s lots of variety. You’ll support individuals in all aspects of daily living; from cooking to managing finances. Supporting people with their personal care and medication needs is also key. As a support worker you’ll also support people to do things in their community; from shopping and going on day trips to sport and visiting day centres. Find out more about these aspects of the role through videos on our main website.

If you’re new to social care, we will support you gain the nationally recognised Care Certificate. If you have experience as a care assistant or care worker in a care home, you’ll discover we provide plenty of on-going training, support to achieve relevant qualifications and career progression.

About you
You’ll need good communication skills and a positive, patient approach. Respectful of people’s differences, you can build professional relationships and have a flexible approach. You can work 24/7 shifts including weekends and evenings / nights. A full driving licence is essential for these roles.

We provide a range of benefits.
