Compass Disability Services are currently recruiting for 2 Part Time Support Workers in Taunton.
Not all heroes wear capes.
Your superpower is that you bring joy to others.
Sprinkling your creativity, compassion, and happiness everywhere you go.
Never afraid to don a funny wig, get your face painted or dance around the kitchen; your vibrancy shines bright to everyone around you, especially your customers.
Most people don’t really understand how rewarding it is to care for Adults with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, but you know how life changing it can be for someone to receive the right support to live an independent and enriched life.
Is there anything better than improving the lives of others who require extra care and support?
People like you are few and far between.
Compass Disability are looking for two such rare and wonderful people to join them on a Permanent basis. Working 16-18 hours a week as a Support Worker as part of the Compass Everyday project, in a welcoming and supportive team you will play a hugely important role.
Your days will be varied; taking a person-centred approach to planning and implementing enriching activities at the centre and out in the Taunton community. Supporting with medication and assisting with personal care in a way that ensures privacy and maintains dignity will also be an important part of your role.
It won’t surprise you that you will also need to be good at keeping good records and hold a level 2 qualification in Adult Social Care. This is just another part of the brilliant skill set you have.
As you will need to travel for work, its essential that you hold a full clean driving license and have access to your own vehicle. All job offers will be made subject to passing an Enhanced Disclosure with the DBS (the cost of which will be covered by Compass Disability)
With a starting hourly rate of £9 per hour that rises to £9.14 upon completion of your probationary period and 25 days (pro rata) of annual leave plus Bank Holidays this is a great opportunity to join a well loved and respected local charity.
