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.

Cornford Lane is an Idyllic site in rural Pembury, home to adults of all ages with autism spectrum conditions, learning disabilities and other complex support needs. We are currently looking for passionate people to join our dedicate support teams at one of our 8 residential homes on site!

Our homes are full of energy and we work hard to empower those we support to learn new skills to help them live life independently. This means that every day we are busy doing many fun activities at home, elsewhere on site and out in the community. These might include:

  • Baking and cooking
  • Doing puzzles at home
  • Attending arts and crafts or sports sessions at our day opportunities centre
  • Gardening or tending to our animals with the horticulture team
  • Going swimming or horse riding out in the community
  • Or any other activities that those we support are interested in.

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!

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!
