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 am the same - When I asked cambsdeaf they suggested choose a hand (preferably the one you would write with the most)  apparently it can get confusing so better just to choose one.  I chose left   but now i think ive made it more difficult as everyone else seems to sign the opposite. 
    • Hi, I'm at Uni aswell (though im 33!) I'm studying Early Childhood Studies about to start my second year in September alongside a new Teaching assistant job ! There's a few children who need further support and I have always wanted to learn BSL and I am happy to practice with you via computer! 
    • I'm Jackie or Jac , I would  like to understand  more about  sign language  and be able to converse at a basic level , hope maybe  someone  with a lot of patience can help me achieve  this 🤗
    • Im currently in uni in Leeds doing a course in childhood studies. Ive always wanted to learn BSL just never really had the time till now. Super excited with my progress but I haven't had the chance to practice it with another person so I don't actually know if im any good hahaha.

    • Hello, im just starting to learn sign language, it’s hard to remember it all but I’m enjoying it.
    • Lol, I doubt I could teach you much, as I've already forgot most of it, and as they say, "if you don't use it, you lose it". and I haven't used BSL, in around 36 years, so much of it is lost, it just needs a refresher, to ignite it all. I would be interested in finding someone to 'refresh' my memory and to help build up speed.  My time zone is MST (Mountain Standard Time), which is currently 8hrs behind the UK, which would mean for the hours between 12pm and 6pm UK time, I would need to be
    • Hi, I’m Joy.  I’m a mum to two gorgeous boys aged 7 and 2. I have bad water damage to my left ear and so have self thought to lip read. However since masks have been in use I’ve felt so isolated as I can’t hear what people are saying so I just cut myself off. I was in a really bad place. I’ve since crawled my way back to feeling a little better and decided that I can’t let my hearing loss rule my life so here I am, trying very hard to learn BSL!
    • Hello everyone, I am still fairly new to BSL, so this might be a silly question, but I am a bit confused about the sentence structure. I'm doing the online course and in Lesson 3 I think, it said that the sentence structure is Object/Topic, Subject, Verb. But in Lesson 7 it's Time, Subject, Verb and Object.  Does that mean the structure is a bit less strict?
