Closing Date: 31 Mar 2020

Company Name: Brandon Trust

Nature of the Company: Brandon Trust is a UK charity working across Southern England and London, supporting over 1,600 people with learning disabilities and autism. We offer rewarding opportunities for support workers, and provide full training in a job where you'll be valued.

Responsibilities: Join learning disability charity Brandon Trust as a bank support worker and discover a genuinely rewarding role where working on a casual basis gives you flexibility. You’ll support people with learning disabilities and autism at home and in the community to live life more freely. You’ll have flexibility and access to shifts that suit you; you could work for a day here and there, for a number of months, evenings only or weekends only.

You’ll join our friendly teams, enabling adults and children with learning disabilities to increase their independence; there’s lots of variety. You’ll support individuals in all aspects of daily living; from cooking to managing finances. Supporting people with their personal care and medication needs is also key. As a casual support worker, you’ll also support people to do things in their community; from shopping and going on day trips to sport and visiting day centres.

Benefits: We provide full training, including the nationally recognised Care Certificate.

Experience: You don’t necessarily need experience as we provide full training. Alternatively, you may be an experienced care assistant or care worker.

You’ll need good communication skills and a positive, patient approach. Respectful of people’s differences, you can build professional relationships and have a flexible approach. A full driving licence is essential for some roles.

Before your first shift you’ll complete the required essential training. You’ll then start as a probationary bank worker, until you’ve completed all the relevant training and have worked the required probationary hours, during which time you'll receive plenty of support from our staff.

Special Requirements: Successful applicants for this role will require an enhanced DBS check.

We are an Equal Opportunities employer and welcome applicants from all sections of the community.
