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 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. In a beautiful rural, purpose-built setting that’s home to adults with epilepsy and other needs, 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 Support Worker, enjoy ongoing training and gain a recognised Care Certificate and optional Health & Social Care Diploma. In this varied role, you might support a resident to go to college, the shops or a show in London – or handle an emergency. You might even help someone shower, or get them dancing at one of our parties. As a Support Worker, you’ll think on your feet and get stuck in. And with experts to call on and learn from, you’ll feel confident in every situation.
Whilst everyone here has epilepsy, and often a learning disability or mental health needs, our residents are individuals. Some will rely on you to get through the day. For some, you’ll simply make it more fun. It’s about supporting each person to expand their horizons – and yours. As a 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 residents, their families and our wider team, our Support Workers soon start feeling like one of the family. It’s a rare privilege, and an opportunity to achieve your potential – whilst helping others to reach theirs too.
To apply please 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.
