Chartwell Trust Care Careers Leicester, Leicestershire Full-Time
Apply on company site

Are you patient, caring, and able to dedicate your time to help others live a fulfilling life? If so, we want to hear from you!

Chartwell Trust Care are looking for Support Workers to provide outstanding support to our residents. Full Time, 40 hours per week on a rota basis.

We offer a competitive pay rate of £9.80 per hour.

Some knowledge of Makaton, Now & Next boards or other communication methods will help you in this role. We induct all of our new starters with a comprehensive training scheme, including Autism Awareness, Medication Training, MCA and DOLS, and use of NAPPI.

Chartwell Trust Care runs a number of residential care homes and supported living services throughout Leicester, supporting individuals with complex behaviours, Autism, and/or learning disabilities.

Every day will be different - each resident has their own likes and dislikes, preferred activities and support needs. You'll provide excellent person-centred support and liaise with other professionals to ensure all needs are met.

This role is challenging but does bring a sense of satisfaction like no other. You may spend one day taking a resident to their medical appointments then doing some crafts in the afternoon, and another day assisting the resident to clean their home or learn a new skill or activity. You'll be able to think outside of the box, coming up with creative solutions and new ways of working. Seeing our residents gain more independence and improving their quality of life is the best part of the job, these 'success stories' are the reason we do what we do!

We provide an excellent training and induction programme for all new starters - you'll be confident in using the residents care plans to structure their week, understand their medical needs and ensure all documentation and notes are updated to a high standard. You'll liaise with multi-disciplinary teams to ensure residents receive the best possible results from all areas, and act as an informal advocate to ensure they receive the support required. Our residents use a variety of methods to communicate, so some knowledge of methods such as Makaton or 'now and next' boards would be advantageous.

We love to invest in our staff, so this role opens up the opportunity to progress to Team Leader, Deputy Manager, and Registered Manager roles.

What do we want from you?

  • Experience of working with people with Autism, Learning Disabilities and/or complex behaviours, either in a professional or personal setting is an advantage but not essential.
  • Holding an NVQ Level 2 or above in Health & Social Care is an advantage, but not essential. You will need to be willing to work towards completing your NVQ in Health & Social Care which is funded by the company.
  • An ability to work full time, to our shift patterns, to ensure continuity for our Service Users. Although we do plan and distribute our rotas in advance, a degree of flexibility is required.
  • A desire to work as part of a team to make a real difference, and improve the quality of life for our Service Users.
  • A willingness to learn and develop professionally.

In return for your skills and experience, we can offer you:
A Refer a Friend scheme, with payment of £200 for referring someone who joins the team
Competitive annual leave allowance
'Employee of the Month' scheme
DBS, extensive training and NVQ's funded by the company
Career progression opportunities to grow within the company
A fun, supportive environment for you to work in
Work anniversary bonus of £100
Hourly rate increase based on satisfactory completion of probationary period
Competitive hourly overtime rate

We'd love to have you on board the Chartwell Team!
