Support Worker/Care Assistants needed - Must have the right to work in the UK to be considered for this role.
Bournemouth - BH10 - Full time and Part time available

Whether you have experience or not, we will help support you to reach your full potential by providing you with all the necessary training, guidance and support you need to complete your care certificate and further qualifications.

The role involves supporting a Gentleman in his 30's who is very sociable, likes to give staff cuddles and enjoys a back rub due to his sensory requirements. He is a very active person and enjoys going out many times through the day. Pre-Covid, he went trampolining and swimming (2:1) and loves going for a Toby Carvery. He likes lots of sensory stimulation when at home so enjoys listening to nursery rhymes and playing with sensory toys.
He will need staff who are proactive in taking him out regularly, and enjoys being active. He enjoys walks in his wheelchair and outings in his car - So you must be prepared to go out in all weathers!

He has epilepsy and profound learning disabilities. He is partially sighted, so needs support with all aspects of his life such as personal care, preparing meals, doing activities. 

Due to being unable to communicate verbally and needing lots of sensory stimulation, he can express self-injurious behaviour when bored or being unable to go out when he would like to. 

He has a lot of family who are very involved and so it is important for him that staff keep family updated regularly with how he is.  It is also important that his home is kept clean and tidy,  this will also be an essential task.

Whether you have experience of working for NHS, School, Healthcare or Care Worker roles previously, we would like to hear from you.

Shift pattern -
7am - 2:30pm and from 2:30pm - 10pm. You will need to be able to work alternate weekends and do at least one sleep in per week. (Sleep in rate is £45)
