Are you looking for a role but can't commit to a full-time position?  We are looking for people that are willing to do a couple of shifts a week to fit around their own schedule that are interested in a role in the care sector.

What I enjoy about my job is that every day is different. I like seeing that we make a difference to the people we support – it feeds the soul’

How many people do you know that can say this about their jobs? Fancy a change? Ever thought of becoming a support worker?

“After breakfast, the people we support either relax, or get involved in activities of their choice, which I help them with. This might include attending communication workshops, playing games, going on trips around the county, going shopping, or anything else planned in their weekly schedules.

“Afterwards, some people like to go to the pub, where they’re fondly known by the locals. We judge the value of activities by asking: “does this meet their individual needs, and make them smile?”

We are looking for support workers for our lovely supported living home in Middleton, Lancashire. We are paying £7.90 per hour plus benefits.

Benefits include

  • Childcare Vouchers
  • Flexible working hours
  • Wider Wallet online discount scheme
  • Comprehensive induction and training
  • Realistic progression (we are an award-winning organisation who are committed to developing people from within)
  • Staff pension
