Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme 2019, 2020 & 2021.

We are looking for Female Support Workers in Crawley for various shifts on a full time basis, covering earlies, lates and alternate weekends on a rota.  We offer fantastic benefits, training and a great team environment and we are looking for people who share our values and can support someone to have the life they want to live. Dimensions are one of the country’s largest not-for-profit organisations supporting people with learning difficulties, autism, challenging behaviour and complex needs and we are driven by our values.  People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do.

Dimensions are looking for proactive, big characters to join the team!

We are supporting ladies and gentlemen with autism and learning difficulties in Crawley all of whom require personal care and use wheelchairs. Candidates must be comfortable with being physically active in this role as manual handling is a key part of the daily life of the people we support. You'll need to push wheelchairs for long periods as the people we support love to get outside on a daily basis, use specially tailored equipment around the home including movable beds and assist with repositioning.

We are looking for candidates who can support with all aspects of daily life, especially cooking, along with people who are confident with paperwork logging and an awareness of computer systems. Candidates must be comfortable with lone working as you will be working one on one with someone in a supported living accommodation.
