Do you want to work in care doing something new and exciting, where no two days are the same? Then this opportunity could be just for you!!
Out & About is a unique and expanding service, providing day, evening and weekend opportunities for adults with a learning disability to access community activities. Our focus is in organising day trips to places of interest, such as the coast, theme parks, swimming, and much more. As well, it offers 1:1 outreach support during week days, and specialises in finding appropriate activities for those adults who prefer not to attend traditional day service activities.
We are seeking a new and enthusiastic Senior Support Worker to join our team of dedicated staff. If you are able to work independently, using your own initiative and able to manage challenging situations, then this could be the role for you. For this role you will need to have significant experience with this customer group and you should have particular skills in motivating others. A significant requirement of the role will be promoting independence, social inclusion, as well as providing care and support to our client group.
This role requires you to be flexible to the needs of the service, taking on an appropriate level of responsibility, including working week days, evenings & weekends as required.
You will need to be proactive and use your own initiative in the planning and organisation of daily activities and be able to make on the spot decisions as and when required.
As part of this role you are required to drive our own, manually operated vehicles for long distance journeys/group activities and therefore need to meet the insurance criteria. You will also need to be prepared to use your own car if required for which we pay a generous mileage allowance.
