The successful candidate will work within a day centre and community based services covering various shift including mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends, bank holidays, nights (waking watch).  This is a permanent position working 14 hours per week.

As a Support Worker you will support and enable people to live the life they choose: to make choices, to express themselves and live as independently as possible.

Flexibility is needed as working times do vary and may include evenings and weekends; we will however provide you with a rota in advance so you can plan your life accordingly.
