Being a Support Worker at Glenholme
Glenholme Healthcare is a well-established and highly regarded social care provider and our colleagues come from many different sectors to provide essential care for vulnerable individuals and to help them achieve their potential. It doesn't matter if you're new to care or just returning. Glenholme can offer you an amazing opportunity and training to allow you to play an important and meaningful role working with adults with learning and physical disabilities. Your job will be to help them develop greater independence, enabling them to achieve their life goals.
What you will do as a Support Worker
We are looking for passionate and hardworking support workers to assist our service users to enjoy a fulfilling and meaningful life, participate within the community and develop their abilities. You will be promoting independence, choice and inclusion. Activities of support vary from meal planning, personal care, social visits, travel escort, the teaching of independent living skills, management of medication and other daily tasks, assisting with accessing community-based activities such as going to college, swimming, and other social and leisure activities.
What you will need
Experience is desirable but not essential. If you are a caring and compassionate individual, we will offer you paid training to give you the knowledge and skills you need to become a support worker. Experience caring for another individual either personally or professionally is very beneficial, or you may have minimal or no experience. However, if you have a caring, empathetic and compassionate nature, a strong belief in teamwork, a keen work ethic and are ready to explore a career in care, then we want to hear from you.
The safety of our staff and residents is our highest priority. As such, all staff have access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for use at work. Also, in line with social distancing measures, some interviews may be conducted via video interview and we are offering an e-learning induction training course.
This position is subject to an enhanced DBS check. If all of this is of interest to you, then please contact us to arrange an interview.
Note: Some benefits may be limited or not be available during lockdown restrictions due to external factors.
