Support Worker - v959

Department, Location : Support Services - Social Care Newcastle/Tynedale
Salary: £18,069.48 p/a
Hours: Full Time

If you’re a fast learner, open minded and resilient with bags of energy and enthusiasm, you won’t any need experience for this role.

Imagine you couldn’t apply for this job. Imagine you couldn’t make the most of your talents. Or day-to-day decisions about your own life. Or even a simple cup of tea. Now imagine you’ve been trained as a Support Worker with Azure Charitable Enterprise and that you really can make it all happen for people – and make their day, as well as yours. It might sound like a cliché, but it’s true: we change lives.

We are looking for staff in the Newcastle and Tynedale area. In this varied role, you might support a client to go to the shops or a show in London – or handle an emergency. You might help someone shower or even ski down a ski slope! As a Support Worker, you’ll think on your feet and get stuck in. And with experts to call on and learn from, you’ll feel confident in every situation.
Whilst everyone we work with has a learning disability or mental/physical health needs, the people we support are individuals. Some will rely on you to get through the day. For some, you’ll simply make it more fun. Building strong bonds with their families and our wider team, our Support Workers soon start feeling like one of the family. It’s a rare privilege, and an opportunity to achieve your potential – whilst helping others to reach theirs too.

Our Brilliant benefits from day one:
• 20 days annual leave raising to 25 days plus bank holidays (pro-rated for part -time)
• Full time and part –time working patterns.
• Life insurance plan
• Group personal pension scheme with matching employer contributions up to 4%
• Investment for ongoing staff training / a recognised Care Certificate and optional Health & Social Care Diploma
• DBS paid and on line DBS paid annually
• 20% discount scheme at our garden centre
• Opportunity to progress your career
• Generous refer a friend scheme

A full UK or EU/EEA driving licence is required for this position.
