Having the opportunity to positively impact another’s life is a gift. To do this everyday, what a life.

We are seeking part time experienced and non experienced female Support Workers* for our care service in Ty Newdd, Wrexham.

Outline

Are you up for a challenge? We support 4 ladies with autism and Learning disabilities in their own flats.

The ladies have a range of interests from swimming and walking to relaxing in the pub with a coke, from shopping and making jewellery to listening to music and improvising the drums!

The ladies we support need help with their communication so that they can be in control of their own lives. Each person has their own space in the flats and they are all very different and a lot of fun to support.

“The people we have in our team supporting the ladies say they all have a brilliant sense of humour, they are engaging, energetic and fun to be around”

Lowri Bartrum, Area Manager

This is a service full of joy and we are looking for new people to join a very committed team.

We provide full training around supporting the ladies including positive behaviour support and physical interventions in order to equip you to be able to support them through periods where they may show behaviours of concern.

We look for ways to support the ladies to live their best lives and welcome the input from all new starters… Could this be you?

Our home operates 24/7 and shifts are organised well in advance and worked on a rota basis. Shifts will include evenings, weekends and sleep-ins

About you

Experience isn’t always necessary. If you have the right attitude, good customer service skills, share our values and are willing to learn, you’re likely to be a great fit. We are looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.

People who tend to do well in this service are fun and confident, positive and creative.

You MUST be a driver with a manual licence as you will need to drive service mobility vehicles for when lockdown is relaxed

*We are only able to accept female applicants* for this role due to the operational needs of the service​​​​​​​.
