Imagine you couldn’t apply for this job. Imagine you couldn’t make the most of your talents. Or day-to-day decisions about your own life. Or even a simple cup of tea. Now imagine you’ve been trained as a Community Support Worker with the world’s leading epilepsy charity, and that you really can make it all happen for people – and make their day, as well as yours. It might sound like a cliché, but it’s true: we change lives. Supporting adults with epilepsy and other needs in their own homes and community, we’re proud to make a difference.
If you’re a fast learner, open minded and resilient with bags of energy and enthusiasm, you won’t need experience. After a full induction, you’ll shadow an experienced Community Support Worker, enjoy ongoing training and gain a recognised Care Certificate and optional Health & Social Care Diploma. In this varied role, you’ll be kept on your toes as you support people to do everything from going to the shops or cinema, to dressing and attending college. As a Community Support Worker, you’ll need to think on your feet and get stuck in. And rest assured that there’ll be experts to call on, so you feel confident in every possible situation.
Whilst everyone you’ll support has epilepsy, a learning disability or mental health needs they’re also individuals. That means you’ll listen to their wants and needs, to provide the type of support that suits their lives best. It’s about supporting each person to expand their horizons – and yours. As a Community Support Worker with Epilepsy Society, you’ll gain the expertise and experience to progress your career – either with us, or into social care, nursing, psychology or similar.
Building strong bonds with the people you support, you’ll soon start feeling like one of the family. It’s a rare privilege, and an opportunity for you to achieve your potential – whilst helping others to reach theirs too.
To apply please complete an application form and/or submit your CV clearly explaining how you meet the person specification for this role.
A Disclosure & Barring (DBS) check will be required before appointment is confirmed.
