This role offers unique and challenging opportunities, bringing great job satisfaction to those who are looking to develop new skills and help other people who need a little support. We provide relevant training, including accredited health and social care diplomas through our own training academy. You will be required to work in a flexible manner on a rota which includes evening’s, weekends and sleep-ins (one project requires wake night support). In addition to opportunities for personal and career development we offer good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture.
