As a Senior Support Worker, your duties could involve supporting and mentoring support staff, identify training needs and leading the writing of support plans.

We support 2500 people and each person we support is a unique individual meaning each support role will be different to the next giving you the chance to make a difference in that person`s life.

For this fantastic opportunity, you will need at least 2 years previous experience of supporting individuals within care and already have or working towards you SVQ level 3.

What matters most is that you have the right values and the right attitude.

Not only will you get a great sense of achievement but in return, you can expect fantastic career progression opportunities, excellent training and a positive enjoyable working environment.
