No matter the circumstances, we will always need caring and values-driven people to support autistic people and people with learning disabilities to lead safe and fulfilling lives. With a role as a Discovery Support Worker you have the peace of mind of knowing that you are protecting and transforming people’s lives – with job security.

We already have a number of vacancies across Somerset, but anticipate severe staff shortages as people are asked to self-isolate. For this reason we’re fast-tracking our approach to recruiting quality staff. You could be working flexible shifts to fit around your personal circumstances in little more than 14 days. You’ll be making an essential difference to vulnerable people, earning money and exploring a fulfilling new career all at the same time.

At Discovery we recruit people based on our values, meaning that as a Support Worker you don’t need qualifications – we will give you all the training you need.

Interested? We have job vacancies across the county. Search and apply online.

Fast-track recruitment
We’ve set up a fast-track recruitment process of video interviews and quick decisions on recruitment, meaning we can make provisional offers and get you started on your training quickly.

Within two weeks of provisional offer, we will aim to have you ready to work. We will provide you with all the information and at-home training you need to get started. We are also working on webinar inductions – so that you can complete your recruitment journey while in isolation.

You’ll gain transferrable skills and recognised qualifications – as well as the opportunity to gain new experiences and try out a career in care.

We have flexible roles available across Somerset to suit your availability, including full-time, part-time, relief and casual contracts. Whether you are in search of a full career change or a temporary solution until you are able to get back to work in your chosen career.
