Full UK driving licence is essential

We’re currently supporting a fabulous gentleman in his 80s in the S8 area of Sheffield. He has a learning disability and requires support with his mental health and mobility.

Your role is to support this gentleman to achieve his goals, which include engaging in the activities he enjoys. He loves going out for walks and going on long drives. He’s also a smoker and enjoys smoking in his own home, in a dedicated room with an air vent.

As a Support Worker, you will be supporting this gentleman to live the life he chooses. On a day-to-day basis you will be providing support with full personal care, meal preparation, medication administration, grocery shopping and household tasks including cooking, cleaning and laundry. This gentleman is a wheelchair user so there are some moving and handling elements to this role, for which you will receive full training.   

So who are we looking for? We’re looking for enthusiastic, compassionate and patient Support Workers to join this gentleman’s team on a part-time or full-time basis, your choice. You will be supporting him one to one, so it’s important that you’re comfortable working alone. It’s also important that you have a full UK driving licence. There is free parking for staff cars at this gentleman’s home.  

Shifts starts at 9am one day and finish at 9am the following day, with a sleep-in shift included. We’re looking for people who can work flexibly on a rota that includes weekdays, weekends and a share of bank holidays. At Dimensions, we value a healthy work / life balance and as such, you will receive your rota 4 weeks in advance.

Support Work is a fantastic career choice that allows you to make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of others. At Dimensions, you’ll receive full training and support every step of the way, making us a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a career change, are re-entering the workforce after a break or if you have some fantastic experience under your belt already and you’re looking for your next challenge – whatever your level of experience, we’d love to hear from you!
