Working with a national charity that focusing on transforming the lives of people with learning disabilities to lead the lives they choose, Elite Care People have the pleasure in assisting with the recruitment of Support Workers based at a specialist residential service in Chineham, Basingstoke.
A support worker’s day is varied, and flexibility is required. You will be providing care and support individually tailored to the needs and wishes of people with learning disabilities. Through getting to know the people you support, you will identify and work with them to achieve their goals, enabling them to have choice and control over their lives.
You will also be expected to carry out everyday tasks including support and encouragement with personal care as well as taking part in a range of interests and activities that make up a healthy, well balanced and fulfilling lifestyle.

You will be offered development and training opportunities to become an exceptional care worker. However, you MUST have a valid driving license and access to your own car.
In return, you will be offered a pay rate of £9.61-£10.57 per hour based on a 37.5 hours per week permanent contract. A typical shift is around 7½ hours and can fall between 7 am and 10 pm, any day of the week. Night staff usually work a 10-hour shift. All the rotas are planned, so you know when you are working.
