Do you wish that you could combine your love of Cliff Richard with work? Maybe you love arts and crafts, drawing, puzzles or DVDs. Why not combine your passion with a new job and change someone’s life?

The young woman that lives in this service loves all of these things and more, so this is a fantastic opportunity for you to join her support team, encourage the activities she enjoys, and even introduce some new hobbies!

You could earn up to £22,000* with Affinity Trust working as a Support Worker!

Who are we?
Affinity Trust was set up in 1991, and since then we have been steadily growing to now support over 1,000 people across England and Scotland. Our mission is to work with people with learning disabilities to lead the lives they choose in their communities and become as independent as possible. Each day will be different and full of amazing interactions with the people you will be working with.

What does the role involve?
Being a support worker means that you are integral to the day-to-day lives of the people you support, helping with various activities such as assistance with personal care, jobs around the house, planning and preparing meals and maintaining health and wellbeing. As well as the routine things, you will also support on days out to the park, to the beach, out for lunch and much more – the possibilities are endless. The people we support also love going on holidays, so who knows, you may even get to go on holiday!

What do we need from you?
Because the location of this service is quite rural, you will need to be a driver, and you will also need to work flexibly across a 24-hour rota. Although experience is great, we believe that as long as you are confident, have a good sense of humour and the same values as us, we can provide you with all the training you need to be a brilliant support worker.

We recognise that although this job is rewarding, it can also be challenging, so in return for your hard work, Affinity Trust offer you:
* 28 days paid holiday per year (inc. bank holidays)
* Competitive pension scheme matching contributions up to 6%
* Discount scheme for shopping, days out, cinema tickets, groceries and much more
* 24-hour helpline for all employees
* Funded and ongoing training for your own development

This post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check, which will be provided by Affinity Trust. Affinity Trust are an equal opportunities employer that promotes diversity within our workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community, regardless of sexual orientation, race, age, gender, disability, religion or belief.

*based on 37.5 hours per week at £8.75 per hour, 7.5 hours average additional over-time per week, plus 1 sleep-in per week at a rate of £30.90

"Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010".
