Do you want a job that will work flexibly around your current commitments.
Would you like a fun and fulfilling role that will help make a difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities and autism?
The Grace Eyre Foundation is a charity that has been working with people with learning disabilities since 1898, across Sussex. Our mission is to be led by people with learning disabilities in the delivery of high-quality housing, support, employment, and activities in their local communities.
We are looking to recruit a team of flexible support workers to provide cover support for annual leave, sickness and training to some of our already established support services in Crawley and Burgess Hill.
We have weekday, weekend and evening/sleep in shifts available.
Your role will be to support people with learning disabilities and autism with day to day tasks in either our supported living houses or out in in the community.
We support people with all aspects of their lives, such as daily living skills, medication, personal care and finances as well as accessing community activities. You will need to have good communication skills and just enjoy spending time with people.
We are looking for people who are patient, compassionate, understanding and able to use their own initiative.
It is a rewarding and varied role and one that really makes a difference to the lives of the people we support. It helps them to live a fulfilled life and achieve their goals and dreams with a little help from people who care.
No experience is necessary. You probably already have the skills and attributes you need to make a great Support Worker, but you will receive full training.
A current valid driving license would be advantageous for this role.
No applicant for employment or employee will be treated less favourably than another on grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation, marriage & civil partnership or pregnancy & maternity, and we encourage applications from people with learning disabilities or identify with being on the autistic spectrum/neuro-diverse.
Staff benefits include:
We are also:
• A Living Wage employer
• Accredited as an Investors in People employer
• Accredited as a Level 2 Disability Confident employer
Successful applicants will be required to provide details of 2 referees (one must be your most recent employer) and undertake an enhanced DBS Disclosure.
