Support Workers

£8.91 per hour

Darlington

Part-time, 16 – 32 hours per week

Full UK driving licence is essential 

We’re looking for people who may be new to the industry but have a determination and passion for supporting others to achieve their goals. We believe that if you share our values and you have an openness and willingness to learn, then you have the potential to make a fantastic Support Worker and we’d love to hear from you!

We have a fantastic opportunity to join our brilliant team of support workers in the DL3 area of Darlington where we will soon be supporting a young man to live his life the way he chooses. You will be providing support with daily routines that include full personal care, medication administration, meal preparation and domestic tasks, as well as supporting and facilitating his participation in the activities he enjoys. He will have access to his own car so it’s important that everyone in his support team has a full UK driving licence and are comfortable driving his car.

Transitioning to Dimensions is a big change for this young man. He has a learning disability and autism and he’s looking for kind, calm and understanding people to join his support team. It’s likely that he will display behaviours that others may find challenging so we’re looking for people with previous experience of challenging behaviour, or people who are committed and willing to learn, so that we can support him in the best way possible.

We’re looking for people who can work flexibly on a rota that includes a combination of day shifts and night shifts during the week, at weekends and on occasional bank holidays. At Dimensions, we value a healthy work / life balance and as such, you will receive your rota 4 weeks in advance.
