We are currently recruiting friendly, patient and calm Support Workers to join our team at Russet House in Yeovil.

Why join us?

  • £9.36 per hour.
  • 30 days annual leave pro-rata (including bank holidays).
  • Supported ‘Learn to Drive’ scheme (up to 30 driving lessons, 1 theory/practical test – all paid for by us)
  • A 24 Hour Employee Assistance Programme for you and your family members.
  • Long Service Awards, Life Assurance and Pension scheme.
  • Great Induction and training opportunities including the Care Certificate, and Diploma in Health & Social Care.

Our team works in a calm and quiet 5 bedroom bungalow in Yeovil with great facilities for the people that we support, including a sensory room with lots of light, sound and colour and two large sensory planters that have seasonal flowers and fruits growing in them year round. At the moment we have strawberries in there!

When we aren’t attending sensory events in the community or getting out to do some shopping, we love a great cooked breakfast and so this service always smells fantastic in the morning. We love our music, and one of the people we support loves attending concerts and live music gigs. If we aren’t at a concert we get our instruments out for an at home performance instead. Other popular activities at this service include arts and crafts, drives in the car and long walks in the local area.
