Would you like a career that’ll make a real difference? As a SeeAbility Support Worker, you’ll grow with the people we support by making exceptional relationships with them, their families and your team. The best part is that no two days will be the same! You’ll be encouraging the people we support to become more independent, to make more choices and live the lives they want to lead.

You should be: 

  • A good communicator
  • Willing to provide personal support in a residential care home to people with complex needs
  • IT literate or willing to learn
  • Able to work well in a team 
  • Committed to promoting individual choice, autonomy and a person-centred lifestyle
  • No experience is required, although is advantageous

Working alongside our specialist team, you’ll have hands-on experience of providing rehabilitation to people with sight loss, helping them maintain and develop skills so they can do things for themselves. Our speech and language therapists enable people with communication difficulties to express themselves using signs, objects or computer programmes instead of language. What you do each shift will depend on the people you will be supporting: you may be off swimming or to the pub or making a meal, as well as helping them with personal care and day-to-day tasks.

If you'd like to join the team and build a career with SeeAbility then we'd love to hear from you. If you'd like to find out more about the service or being a Support Worker, call Sam Adams, Registered Manager on 01293 784 235.
