We are seeking to recruit a Female Support Worker to provide personalised care for a female service user who has learning disabilities and is on the autistic spectrum, providing support to her within her own home.

You will be expected to work flexibly on a rota to meet the needs of the service including evenings, weekends and bank holidays. The service is easy to travel to from any point across South Manchester, with regular bus links to and from Manchester city centre.
