We are looking for someone to join our Complex Care team.

The team at SCA Care believe that helping people live the life they want to lead is extremely important – everyone should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.  Our exciting Complex Care Service has been launched to support adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs to build and maintain life skills, including domestic activities such as cooking and cleaning, as well as budgeting, shopping, seeking employment and/or further education as well as discover new social activities.

When you join our team, you’ll make a real and positive impact to the lives of the people we support in Southampton.  Working at SCA Care means that you’ll make sure that the customer, and that the care and support given is tailored to their unique and individual needs.

We value your personality and passion.

For us, personality and passion comes before education. Caring experience is always ideal but as long as you have the right attitude and values, then we’d love you to apply.  You’ll always be supported and looked after by your SCA Care colleagues and wider Social Care in Action family, and full training will be provided.

A Complex Care Assistant’s role can be wide and varied – no two days are the same – but here’s an idea of what you could be doing:

  • Promoting and encouraging independence, while developing real life skills with the people we support – all of whom have learning disabilities or additional support needs
  • Identifying new opportunities for integration, participation and inclusion, available to the people we support, both within our services and the community
  • Providing quality personal care, which could include bathing etc. depending on individual needs, while maintaining respect and sensitivity
  • Participating in household tasks, which include cleaning, cooking, ironing, washing etc. while encouraging the people we support to join in
  • Working with the people we support to implement appropriate strategies for when behaviours that challenge may occur
  • Engaging in conversation and sometimes having a belly laugh together over something silly!


  • Free training including comprehensive training package including QCF qualification
  • Work to fit your preferred hours
  • 6 weeks paid holiday (inclusive of bank holidays)
  • Excellent career pathway
  • Your birthday off
  • Guaranteed hours contracts
  • Paid travel time
