Seeking engaging Support Workers in Witney

  • Annual Salary £22,486.67 with realistic earn up to salary of £28,781.04 PLUS company benefits, 
  • Full-time or part-time hours (minimum 25 hours per week)
  • Shifts available: early shifts, late shifts . There is also a sleep shift required, each night.
  • *it is essential that you have a full UK manual driving licence as the people we support ask that you are able to drive their vehicles

We are looking for proactive and caring people to join experienced colleagues in two of our homes in Witney, supporting people with learning disabilities and physical disabilities.

One of the homes is a very peaceful, sensory-oriented bungalow and each bedroom is decorated to reflect the personalities and preferences of the five people you will be supporting.  There is also a lovely summer house in the garden.  

The other home, also a bungalow, has the most magical zen-like garden which is much loved by the four people you will be supporting, as is the rest of their beautifully, personalised home.  The companionship in this home is exceptional as the people who live here have shared their home with each other for over 10 years - and some of their support team have been with them all that time!  

Each person asks that you will support them with their intimate personal care, mobility assistance and all aspects of their daily lives - and they ask that you have some 'get-up-and-go' so you can encourage and enable them to make the most of each day. 

You will be genuinely empathic and able to communicate effectively, with compassion and understanding, as the people you will be supporting use either very few, or no, words to communicate - but are very, very able to express themselves in other ways, to be sure you will know what they want!

Every day will be different, and rewarding, as you encourage and empower each person to be actively engaged in every aspect of their daily lives – this will include accompanying to favoured activities, supporting with daily living skills, administering medication and supporting with personal care and mobility assistance, if needed.

At Dimensions, we believe it is who you are as a person – and the difference you can bring to lives of the people you will be supporting – that is more important than experience. Whether you are new to support work, or have supported people previously, we want to hear from you!   We will give you all the training you need to be become an amazing support worker for the people you will be working with.   You will find no other role more personally fulfilling, and professionally rewarding, than becoming a Support Worker with Dimensions.

On top of on-going, fully-funded training and mentoring, we offer all our colleagues generous benefits; job satisfaction and job security, genuine career prospects, and an inclusive, caring work environment that celebrates diversity, champions mental well-being, and encourages employee recognition.
