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

About the Role:

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

Falconer’s Court is a residential service, home to 7 adult females with autism spectrum conditions and other learning and physical disabilities. Many of those we support have limited verbal communication skills and can occasionally display behaviours of concern.

On the other hand, the home is full of lots of energy. To match this we are looking for a friendly, energetic and hard-working person, who has a fun spirit and a passion for supporting others to join our fantastic staff team.

Your role as a support worker will be vital in helping those we support to feel empowered to live as independently as possible. You will play a big role in supporting daily activities which could include: baking, arts and crafts, swimming and bowling.

You'll also be responsible for carrying out the person-centred support plans (including personal care) and following risk assessments, administering medication and completing daily reports to ensure those we care for are safeguarded while living their best life.

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 could be a great fit at Aspens!

Due to the current need within this service, it is essential for this role that you have a valid Driving Licence and access to your own car.
