THE ROLE:Our Client provides support for people with learning disabilities. As a Bank Support Worker your role is to support people to live independently and help them to achieve their goals. This will include supporting them to shop, cook and manage their home as well as encouraging them to engage in a range of community based activities and supporting them to maintain and develop positive relationships.

The advantages of working as a Bank Support Worker are that you can choose what shifts to work and you can work in a variety of services we provide in different locations.

All our Bank Support Workers receive a very detailed induction and training and complete shadow shifts before working with the people we support. New staff who have not previously worked in care are supported through the nationally recognised Skills for Care Common Induction Standards. On successful completion of the 12 week induction period you gain an accredited 'Preparing to work in health and social care' qualification which leads onto a Level 2 Diploma. Your training is specifically tailored to enable you to support the people you work with. When attending training courses you are paid your normal hourly rate of pay.
