Do you want to make a real difference and enable our service users to live life to the full and maintain their independence?

We are looking for experienced care and support workers who would like to enhance their skills by working across our supported living and community services in the Colchester area. In addition, we may be able to offer work to people who have not worked in a care setting before but who have transferable life skills and experience and the right values and attitudes to supporting people. We are especially interested in applications from car drivers due to the need to support some individuals to access the community by car.

We provide support to adults with a variety of challenging needs who need support to maintain their personal hygiene, prepare food, access day support opportunities and education, complete their shopping, take part in creative activities within their homes and participate in a wide variety of social activities within the local community. Some individuals suffer from epilepsy and other complex health needs.

In return we can offer a variety of contracted hours and additional hours on a flexible basis. We are looking for people who can work a variety of shifts including nights and weekends. We offer training opportunities which include all mandatory training courses as well as more specialized courses depending on the needs of the individuals you support. We can also offer a supportive team environment where staff work together to really advocate on behalf of the individuals to ensure that they fulfill their potential and live life in the way they choose.
