Recruitment Team, Sussex House, Battle, East Sussex TN33 0AE

About the Role:

At Aspens we work across Kent and Sussex; supporting individuals with autistic spectrum conditions, learning disabilities and physical disabilities.

Our Supported Living Services in Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas support adults of all ages with autism spectrum conditions and other learning disabilities or related complex support needs.

As a Support Worker in our Community Outreach Team you will work at both our Supported Living Service in Maidstone as well as providing
Community Support to other adults who live locally.

Along with your general caring responsibilities (including some personal care and assisting those with physical disabilities or mobility issues) your role will include supporting with many exciting activities such as baking or painting, as well as other activities out in the local community, supporting with shopping, attending local clubs or going on other fun days out.

Whatever your personal interest or passion may be, you will be able to bring this to your role at Aspens, using this to create meaningful connections with those you support and ensuring that every day is fun for the both of you!

About You:

We are looking for friendly, hard-working people with a fun spirit and a good sense of humour to join our team of support staff.

We recognise that good support workers come from all walks of life. Whether you have years of care experience or no experience at all, if you are a caring person, passionate about empowering others and ready to learn new skills we think you would be a fantastic fit for our team.

Because this is a community-based role, it would be largely beneficial for you if you have a full, clean driving licence and access to your own vehicle.
