Our client provides Supported Living, Residential, Outreach and Community Services to individuals with multiple or complex needs such as learning disabilities, autism, ABI and/or challenging behaviours. Employees benefit from great career progression, sector-leading professional training and great job stability – people stay an average of 6 years!
This service is a transitional service in Virginia Water supporting young adults with complex needs and learning disabilities to develop their independent living skills. The people who live there have varying support needs from full personal care and physical support to encouragement of personal care and support with varying activities and going on holiday.
All of the individuals attend day centres Mon-Fri with 1 person staying behind each day to complete their individual activities (incl. canoeing, rock climbing, cinema, shopping etc.). Because of this the service runs on a split shift basis (7am-10am, 3pm-8/9pm and 8:45pm-7:15am; subject to change). The manager is flexible if a candidate cannot complete all night shifts. Due to the day centre and range of activities it is essential applicants hold a full valid driving licence and use of own vehicle (there are 2 service vehicles).
