Hours: Various full and part-time contracts – days/waking nights/casual roles
Havencare Homes and Support Limited is a forward-thinking charity that supports people with learning disabilities and autism, and we have opportunities for enthusiastic, resourceful, and forward-thinking people to join Havencare as Support Workers.
At Havencare we don’t think that experience is everything, first and foremost we are looking for outstanding people with outstanding values that align with our values of Transparency, Quality and Engagement.
We have opportunities based at Porthpean, which is a supported lifestyle project for 6 individuals living in their own flats who receive 1:1 support at different times of the day and have access to our shared support hub. The hub is a unique dimension to Supported Living and you will be supporting individuals as a point of contact, with their planned activities and personal care requirements, as well as moving & handling people and providing distress behavior support (when required).
We are looking for people who can engage with different personalities and bring energy, adaptability, and commitment to a support role where every day is different. Today you may have supported with daily living skills and shopping. Tomorrow, you may find yourself at Charlestown drinking coffee. Yesterday you may have been watching a show at the Theatre in Plymouth.
Would you listen to boy bands, watch Mamma Mia, wrestling and action films with Dickon?
Would you go swimming or play golf with Aaron?
Could you knit while singing to ABBA or enjoy a show at the theatre with Kerry?
Would you like Costa chit chats and walks with Mark?
Would you spend a day on the log flume at Camel Creek with Brandon?
Is singing and cuddling or driving to a National Trust garden, with Melissa, your thing?
Do you have a flexible approach to people and support delivery?
Can you deliver communication in variable formats?
Do you understand or want to learn about supporting individualized sensory needs?
If you have said yes to anything you have read, then this is the job for you.
You will work a combination of 1:1 support hours with individuals with complex needs and there will be times when you will be part of our core background support delivering 2:1 support for specific tasks with individuals. You will need to be comfortable with supporting with personal care.
In return we will provide
- Quality training to ensure you have all the skills you require to succeed
- Continual training and development opportunities to maintain and enhance your skills and knowledge
