Are you looking for a role within a business where you’ll feel motivated and empowered? Looking for a job where each day brings variety and new challenges? It’s a great time to move to Southdown as a Support Worker.

We’re recruiting for this service for 8 young adults with learning disabilities on the outskirts of Storrington. The service is located on National Trust land in a rural setting, it’s not unusual to bump into some chickens or a donkey! The clients have busy lives and enjoy a wide range of social and leisure activities i.e., drama, swimming, gym, rambling, gardening and eating out. There is an in-house craft room where all sorts of imaginative creations get put together.

The clients enjoy being supported by kind and caring staff who can encourage them to overcome challenges, work toward their goals and let them make their own decisions. You don’t need to have any experience or qualifications to join us; we’ll invest in you and provide all the training you need to develop excellent support and facilitation skills.

Southdown is a psychologically informed organisation where the well-being and happiness of our employees matter. We’re committed to creating a positive and compassionate work environment where employees feel valued, respected and inspired to do their best. In addition, we’re a family-friendly employer that recognises the importance of a work-life balance. If you share our values and want to work for an organisation that helps change lives for the better, we want to hear from you.

We are a Disability Confident Employer and are fully committed to supporting Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and welcome applications from all candidates that meet our job specifications.  If you feel there is a barrier that potentially prevents you from applying, do get in contact with us at jobs@southdown.org  as we are always happy to discuss (or arrange a discussion with the recruiting manager) to explore if any reasonable adjustments can be made to support your application.

In return, we can offer you excellent training and promotion opportunities, a place within diverse team, a Blue Light Card, Health Care Cash Back scheme, £100 for passing your probationary period and a £300 introduce a friend scheme – once you’ve established it’s great working for Southdown!

A manual driving licence is an essential requirement for this role.

Closing date for applications:     26 February 2024
