Role: Support Worker/Personal Assistant/Intervenor
Position: VARIOUS - Part time, Full time, Permanent, Casual, Bank (zero hours) contract opportunities available
Location: Pocklington, York
Salary: £6.00 - £15.00 per hour – dependant on experience

 

Do you like any of these….

Having fun, swimming, playing, cooking, gardening, being outside, music, trampolining, horse riding?

 

Are you good at any of these…

Communicating, making things fun, being creative, being enthusiastic, thinking outside the box, encouraging independence, working as a team, being with children and young people, educating, caring, sharing?...

 

Then come and meet our daughter and join her wonderful team who help her to live a full and active life…

Our lovely young 18 year old is hearing and vision impaired (deafblind) and struggles with her mobility, but that is not going to stop her joining in with life to the full. We need to increase her team of support workers (intervenors) with equally enthusiastic, fun loving ‘enablers’ who love a challenge, can learn new skills, have bags of energy and want to promote the inclusion of our daughter in the world around her. This will include helping her meet her daily living skills such as eating, dressing and personal care.

 

If this sounds like you then please get in touch:

We have full time or part time positions available to work 2:1 at college, home and in the community. Some overnight work will also be needed for short breaks and as we move towards supported living in the coming months. Salary dependent on skills and experience (£6.00 - £15.00 per hour)

Flexibility is needed as working times do vary and will include evenings, weekends and sleep-ins; we will however provide you with a rota in advance, so you can plan your life accordingly. Your attitude is the most important thing for this very rewarding role.

 

Skills or experience in any of the following areas (or a willingness to learn) would be an advantage….

·         Sign Language (BSL level 1, 2 or 3 would be great and pay will reflect this)

·         Moving and handling

·         Deafblind, deaf, visual impairment, multisensory impairment

·         Physio or occupational therapy background

·         Childcare or social care experience

·         Promoting independence, developing communication, promoting social inclusion

 

We live in a village with a very limited bus service, so transport will be needed. A full UK driving licence is desirable, but not essential.

 

Our current team includes school and university students both male and female as well as full time intervenors. Come and make a positive difference to a very special young lady!

 

What we offer you
Working as a Support Worker (Intervenor) with Emi, is incredibly rewarding; we offer the opportunity to work in a growing team, where people can develop their skills, knowledge and careers in a supportive and flexible environment. In addition, we have excellent staff training and development in all areas such as bespoke Moving and Handling, Sign Language and Intervenor Training.

Our interview process aims to make sure that the role is right for you and you are right for us. This gives you the opportunity to meet Emi, and for her and the team to meet you.

I love how expressive BSL is, and am hoping to use it for a job in the future.
