Overseeing Support Workers, our Senior Support Workers implement care plans for individuals with learning disabilities and other complex needs. You'll operate in supported living schemes providing hands-on care to the people we support, so you can expect total involvement in everything we do.

Who we are and how best to support us;

We are 3 females and 1 male living in a Supported living bungalow in Swaffham. Our ages range from 46 to 86.

The shifts to support us are 07:00-15:00/15:00-21:00/15:00-22:00 plus a Sleep-in shift 22:00-06:30 and 06:30-07:00. Some staff like to work a day shift followed by a sleep in and another day shift, so this is also a possibility. We have both male and female staff supporting us.

2 of us enjoy going to Day Centre during the week. We need support in taking us and picking us up from there so its important that you drive a manual transmission car.

One of us requires full support with hoisting, personal care and medication and the other 3 of us are more mobile and do quite a bit for ourselves. We may just need prompting and a little support at times.

You will receive all training to be able to support us with this. You do not need to have any previous experience as we can provide this for you. Although we require a lot of support it is never boring here at Theatre Street and we love to have fun.

We like to go out on activities and for meals and need support to do this regularly. We thoroughly enjoy accessing the community and have also been on holidays before Covid-19.

Why not apply and come see how you could fit in with us here at Theatre Street.

Our Senior Support Workers have a sound experience of supporting people with varying care needs and are familiar with leading a team; with a commitment to care and a passion for making a difference. In return, we offer all the training, benefits and options for career development you would expect from a leader in our field.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a motivated and determined team. So make a great career move.
