Support Workers and Managers
As a member of our operations team you will be responsible for supporting people with learning disabilities and autism to get the most out of life. You won’t just care for them; you’ll support them to achieve their goals, and that can bring enormous job satisfaction.
The people we support and the people who work with us are at the heart of everything we do. To recruit Support Workers we use a values led recruitment process. This means we’re looking at who you are rather than what you bring. We want to make sure you connect with, and have similar interests to, the person you might support.
Business Support Roles
By joining our business support team you’ll use market leading technology and tools to help us become an exemplar organisation, making sure we’re the best we can be.
We encourage all colleagues to have a healthy work-life balance, and we’ll work with you to regularly re-evaluate your role and identify opportunities to develop your skills and career.
We recognise that Business Support roles are no less important in ensuring that we can provide great support to people with learning disabilities and autism. Just as the cleaners at NASA headquarters famously knew their roles were just as vital in putting a man on the moon in 1961.
Your hard work and dedication won’t go unnoticed. You’ll make a real difference to people’s lives and could be nominated for our Inspiring People recognition scheme.
Employing People with Learning Disabilities and Autism
We encourage the people we support to find meaningful work. And, every year, we are employing more people with learning disabilities and autism across the organisation in a variety of jobs. Their vital roles help make sure we’re being the best we can be for the people we support.
Our Quality Consultants monitor and support our services to make sure they are giving the right support in a safe, inclusive environment. Their work is crucial in maintaining and improving our standards of care across the country.
