Description

***Support Worker***

Full time, permanent contract, full training provided and DBS paid for by company, competitive salary and employee benefits. 

Regard Group provides residential care for adults with learning disabilities and autism, who have challenging behaviour.

The people we support need someone who cares and who will help them to live the life they choose and to be happy and healthy

This is at the heart of what it means to be a support worker with us. This is the most vital role within our organisation; it is what our support workers do every day that makes us all proud to be part of Regard Group

Your days will vary depending on who you are supporting, but you will always:

  • Give our people truly person-centred support in doing the things they love to do, and in making choices and decisions
  • Support them in getting their voice heard
  • Enable them to learn, grow and develop to their full potential
  • Be compassionate, caring and respectful.
  • Treat everyone as an equal
  • Support the other people in your team in achieving the team's objectives
  • Be resilient when things get difficult, knowing that with your support amazing results are possible

Job Requirements

  • Strong communication skills, a positive and caring attitude, and a willingness to work as part of a small, committed team are essential.

Previous experience as a support worker / care worker / carer in a similar setting would be a definite advantage. Full training will be given.

***please note you will be required to upload your CV onto our website, this will take no more than couple of minutes, and your CV will go directly to the Home Manager for review***

 

Quote from an Employee 

‘Looking back from when I first met the service users to now, how much they have progressed and achieved in such a short space of time. It makes me feel on top of the world to be a part of their achievements. To see a smile on one of our service users face after we come home from swimming makes me feel proud as I have helped to put that smile on his face. I look forward to coming to work, prepared for what goal is to be achieved that day. Regard has given me opportunities to progress in my career. When I started with Regard a year and a half ago I never thought I would be an ‘Acting’ Senior Support worker, especially coming in to the job with no prior work experience in this area, Regard has allowed for me to succeed.

 

 

Regard values - Compassionate care, Excellence and Hard work
