Bank hours – flexible (early mornings, afternoons, evenings and sleep ins.)
Hourly Rate – £11.05
Want to make a meaningful and lasting difference? Why not start today and join Centre 404 as a Support Worker within our Finding and Matching Service. You’ll get to see the direct impact you are making by offering people with learning disabilities the support they need to enjoy the same rights, freedom, responsibilities, choices and quality of life as others within the wider community.
Centre 404 is a prominent and successful charity that offers friendly, reliable and person-centred support to people with learning disabilities, autism and their families. We currently operate across 6 London Boroughs.
This role will be part of our “Finding and Matching” service; a close team which provides support to approximately 60 people with learning disabilities living in their own homes in North London. Your contribution and ideas will be highly valued and you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to a growing service. As a Support Worker, you will provide support to service users to ensure their safety, health and wellbeing. Duties will include support with day-to-day aspects such as shopping, meals, personal care, and attending appointments, as well as with leisure, social and physical activities, hobbies and personal interests with an emphasis on helping develop skills, confidence and relationships.
We are looking for proactive people with a can-do attitude and some experience of supporting someone – in a work, personal or voluntary capacity – who has additional needs. Experience of working with people with learning disabilities and/or Autism, or with people from varied social and cultural backgrounds will be advantageous but not essential; it is more about your positive values and approach. Reliability, an eye for detail and commitment to delivering a consistently high quality of service is essential for success in this role.
The ethos behind all our services is to offer support that is empowering, person-centred, promoting choice and integration, as well as reducing isolation. We are always looking for friendly, energetic people to join us in achieving this valuable purpose and to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of those we support.
