Recommended Posts

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'm Laura, I'm 24 and I live in Scotland. I've wanted to learn BSL for a wee while, and I saw the introductory course was available so decided to jump in! I work in a nursery and plan to go on to study speech and language therapy, so this will definitely be a worthwhile course. ☺️
    • Building squeeze page before building opt-in business consumer email list The landing-age is imperative, and it should be appealing enough to grab the consideration of visitors. 'Squeeze Page' is not a site, but it is a single web page with little detail for consumer email list the sole aim of attracting audience to subscribe to the offer.If one does not have e-books to use product, they can find free e-books on the internet to download. Once, one has selected the product, they are all prepared to go to next aspect which incorporates receiving consumer email list service to get prospect details. One just needs an consumer email list program as it makes the process much easier. Some common features of corespondent services are unrestricted number of auto-res ponders consumer email list, scheduled mailings and personalized web forms.promises that range from questionable to outright nonsense. You must have perseverance when building your first consumer email list. All too often new marketers come online full of vim and vigor, powered up by promises of untold wealth to be made in short order online,    The reason for creating opt-in business consumer email list is to get e-mail addresses and names of individuals in exchange for helpful detail they may need.  Before long, these would-be online super-stars are frustrated, disillusioned and demotivated by their lack of results in building an consumer email list.  
    • I've wanted to learn BSL for a while for several reasons: partially because I would like to be able to communicate with Deaf people better in the workplace and partially to be more inclusive in social settings such as church.
    • Hi, I've wanted to learn BSL for a while but struggled to find an in-person course and then came across this online course which has been really good so far. I went to a primary school with a unit for hearing impaired children and learnt finger spelling there but 25+ years on and I still don't know much else!
    • hello! I decided to do a sign language course because I want to become a doctor and I think it's important to be able to communicate with anyone I come across to the best of my ability. I'm hoping to do an in person course at my collage to make my signing a bit better!
    • the number plate trick is such a good idea!!
    • Thank you for sharing this, I happen to work in early years and currently sign using what I have learnt so far in BSL or  Makaton. I can't wait to have a look at this site as I do work with a Deaf baby. ☺️💜    
    • Hi everyone,  First timer who has just started to lean BSL. Look forward to using it proficiently to speak to people all over London, although I am a slow learner when it comes to language.  I started as I work in the law enforcement in London, and have found that our translators (on the phone) can help a lot with other spoken languages, but we struggle to communicate with the deaf. I'd like to change that and learn the language to be able to speak to people from those communities. With London being so diverse, I'd like to take a small step in making communication easier.
