Support Worker, The Firs, Paignton

Salary: £11.30-£11.50 per hour
Hours: 18 hours 

Contract:  Permanent, part-time contract
Location: The Firs, Paignton

Havencare Homes and Support Limited is a forward-thinking and growing charity.  We have been making a difference for 35 years, changing the lives of people who have learning disabilities, autism, brain injuries, and other support needs. Our big aims include every person having a home that is right for them, and support for the life they choose. 

At Havencare we don’t think that experience is everything, first and foremost we are looking for outstanding people with outstanding values that align with our values of Transparency, Quality and Engagement. 

We have a great opportunity for an enthusiastic, resourceful, and forward-thinking Support Worker to join our existing team supporting four individuals, with learning disabilities, in our small and lovely residential home in Paignton. 

We are looking for someone who can engage with different personalities and bring energy, adaptability, creativity, humour, patience, and commitment to a support role where every day is different.   

  • Yesterday you may have been swimming.  Today you may be supporting with daily living skills and shopping, and tomorrow, you may find yourself in a Paignton café drinking coffee.  
  • Would spending a day at the spa be your thing? Or perhaps a trip on the bus or train to Totnes. Going for scenic walks in the local area or singing along to someone’s favorite music/TV programme.  

 If you can say yes to anything you have read, then this could be the job for you, and we would love to hear from you.     

The working pattern to support these individuals would be: 

18 hours per week (3 x 6-hour shifts on a two-week rolling rota) 

If you are the right person for this role, we will provide you with: 

  • Quality training to ensure you have all the skills you require to succeed.   
  • Continual training and development opportunities to maintain and enhance your skills and knowledge. 
  • Free 24/7 confidential Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to support your health and wellbeing.  
  • Financial incentive for our Refer a Friend Scheme. 
  • Vouchers at Christmas, your work anniversary, and your birthday.  
  • Paid DBS.  

Closing date:  The closing date for this vacancy is the 9th June 2023. Applications will be considered as and when received.

If your application is successful, any offer of employment will be subject to: 

            A satisfactory enhanced DBS check and subsequent registration for the DBS update service 

            2 acceptable / satisfactory references 

            Evidence of eligibility / right to work in the UK
