Job description
PA Ark Projects Ltd. are recruiting! We are very excited to present a fantastic opportunity for full time enthusiastic male Support workers to join our Residential service in Merston with the availability to work every other weekend as required with a valid driving licence.

*Due to the nature of the role we require a male support worker with a valid driving licence within our Residential Service.

*Please note we do not offer support with Visa or Location Sponsorships and if you have an international driving licence you will need to check the requirements on the GOV website if you need a International driving permit.

Previous experience within working in a similar environment is desirable however not essential as full training and support will be provided for all staff.

We are looking for professional, dedicated caring Support Workers to make a difference with the open-minded mentality to adapt to an everyday dynamic changing environment. Excellent communication skills are a must as well as the ability to work well within a team or working off own initiative.

Please note all successful applicants must also be willing to complete a DBS Check and any further checks as required.

Responsibilities –

Every person we support has their own needs and personality, and your responsibilities will reflect that. Here are some of the areas that you are most likely to be involved in:

Health and wellbeing. This could include supporting people to make positive choices about eating well, taking exercise, and maintaining good hygiene. Providing emotional support or potentially supporting them with dressing, washing and personal care.
Leisure and social activities. Whether it is taking part in indoor activities like cooking and crafting, outdoor activities such as walks, horse riding or swimming, going on day trips and holidays, or just going out for a coffee, be prepared to get stuck in! Like all of us, the people we support need to do the things they enjoy and get involved in the local community to stay happy and healthy.
Daily living skills. Things like paying bills, attending appointments, shopping, cooking, and cleaning can be challenging for someone with a learning disability, so you’ll be on hand to support and encourage them.
Safeguarding. People with learning disabilities can be vulnerable to abuse or exploitation. As their support worker you’ll make sure they are safe, their rights are upheld, and they are being treated with consideration and respect.
Administration duties, which could include dispensing and recording medicines for the people you support and maintaining accurate records and reports. Everything you do should be in line with current legislative and care standards.

Our Values –

We are a local, forward thinking, inclusive and person-centred care organisation who values their employees with a focus on their wellbeing and development. We strive to promote independent daily living for our service users who have learning disabilities, complex and challenging behaviours. We support with occupational guidance and personal capabilities which will pursue our aim to help clients live as full life as possible with dignity and respect.
