              If you have answered a big YES to these questions we would love to hear from you.

              Job description

              At Turning Point, we support people with Learning Disabilities across England.

              As a Support Worker, you will make a real difference to residents' lives as you improve their daily living skills. Passionate about people, you will enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life and career too, as you gain the experience and training you need to progress with us.

              Where will I be working?

              We offer 24 hour supported living facilities in providing care for adults with Learning Disabilities. We support 18 individuals across Peterborough and two people in a village just outside Peterborough in Whittlesey.

              People we support are all with Learning Disabilities, Autism, complex needs, health needs and physical disabilities. We also have those with dual diagnosis so they have a learning disability with a mental health diagnosis. Support is 24 hrs and you will be dedicated to one home as part of a team.

              We endeavour to create positive family relationships offering a good circle of support. There is a strong focus on supporting individuals' lives in a person centred way which includes various activities, shopping, managing own budgets and cooking. We tailor our services to enable people to be as independent as possible.

              What will I be doing?

              This is a hands-on job in which no two days are the same. Your duties will include:

              • promoting the independence of people we support
              • supporting a full range of daily activities including cleaning and cooking, days out or going away on holiday
              • arranging activities in the home and in the local community
              • developing residents' life skills and personal interests
              • helping residents stay safe and healthy
              • assisting with personal care needs
              • manual handling
              • supporting people with medication
              • ensuring record keeping is maintained to the required standard at all times and contributing to service monitoring requirements.

              What skills and qualities do I need to have?

              Whilst knowledge of learning disabilities and complex needs would be beneficial, it isn't essential. What is essential is that you are:

              • passionate, caring and enthusiastic
              • flexible, patient and non-judgemental
              • a great team player with lots of energy
              • able to demonstrate good communication skills
              • able to complete the physical aspects of the role such as manual handling where needed
              • transferable experience of helping people to manage anxiety

              Shift Patterns

              This is a 24 hour service, therefore flexibility is essential. You will be working a range of shifts from 7:00/8:00 am to 2:00/3:00 pm and 2:00/3:00 pm to 9:00/10:00 pm, sleep ins or waking nights, some weekends.

              Please note that working hours may vary from service to service.

              What benefits will I receive?

              Of course, we know it's not about the money. But that doesn't mean we don't reward our people for their invaluable work with a benefits package that includes:

              * Comprehensive Learning and Development opportunities - we are Investors in People Silver accredited

              * 28 days holiday, increasing with each year of service until 30 days. Plus the option to purchase additional holidays

              * Flexible benefit options including, bike to work schemes and season ticket loans

              * Competitive Pension and Life Assurance scheme

              * Employee Assistance Programme and access to online Health and Wellbeing support

              * Flexible working patterns to support work/life balance

              * Access to a wide range of discounts including Cinema, Groceries and Gym.

              Why Turning Point?

              We take pride in the services that we provide. There is one vision that everyone at Turning Point shares, which is held together by our values. These include believing in potential, communicating in a confident way, embracing change and treating each other as individuals.

              Running services on a not-for-profit basis, we invest every penny back into our services - and, our people. So, if you are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to support people with Learning Disabilities to live fulfilling lives - here at Turning Point, we don't just offer you a job: we offer you a career.
