As a member of our Complex Care Support Team, you will be passionate about making a difference to an individual’s life. The purpose of the role is to support our customers to achieve life goals and aspirations through social, emotional, physical and cultural requirements in a person centred way, as outlined in the customers individualised care plan, in a manner that is professional, positive and upholds the values of SCiA.
This is a brand-new support package for SCA Care and as such we are currently looking for compassionate support workers to provide support to a gentleman in his early 30’s who will shortly be moving to his own bungalow in Totton.
Your primary purpose will be to support this individual to live a meaningful, happy life. You will empower him to identify his goals, pursue hobbies, support his health and wellbeing, and be a part of the local community. He loves cooking, baking and art, watching films and gaming on his computer, therefore an interest in these would be advantageous. He is also very close to his family and enjoys attending events with them.

Afternoon Shifts: 2:30pm to 10:00pm
Nights Shifts: 10:00pm to 7:00am (both waking and sleep in shifts)
You will succeed because…
You’re an experienced, empathetic and resilient Support Worker, deeply committed to assisting people with additional needs who can present challenging behaviour.

Ideally you will have knowledge and experience of complex needs including autism. You’re able to communicate clearly and sensitively with vulnerable people and their families, and always adopt a person-centred approach.
You will love it because…

You’re keen to develop your career through training, learning and gaining relevant qualifications.
