Support Worker

If you're looking for more personal fulfilment and purpose in your life; if you'd like to have a truly worthwhile, richly rewarding role - a role that offers genuine job satisfaction and job security; an enviable work-life balance, no costly, time-consuming commutes, generous colleague benefits, and on-going, fully-funded training and mentoring to help you reach your full potential and grow professionally, then you might just want to apply to become our newest Support Worker based in Gorseinon, Swansea! 

About the Role 

Located around 6-miles north west of Swansea city centre live five amazing people (four gentlemen and one lady aged 22 - 40), who are looking to welcome into their home several warm-hearted, patient, upbeat, and inspiring individuals to support them in living their best lives - the lives that they choose to live. It is an essential requirement of this position to hold a full, manual UK drivers license as the people we support have access to their own mobility vehicle and they love nothing more than getting out and about as often as they can to help them live richer, more fulfilling lives. In particular, they enjoy attending day centres, cycling, walking, and a spot of fishing. 

By working in partnership with your new colleagues and the families of those we support, you'll be expected to:

  • Be actively and enthusiastically engaged in every aspect of their day (and nights!). You'll achieve this by being involved in their hobbies; accompanying them to appointments and joining them with running errands, encouraging and empowering them to try new things, and support them with their finances, etc. 
  • Respectfully provide personal care, mobility assistance, and meal prep/PEG feeding support.
  • Safeguard the people we support by ensuring they're always content and comfortable, and that the environments they're in are clean and sanitary, and free from risks
  • Write and maintain written records (i.e. observation logs, risks assessments, financial records, etc.)

Because we match our colleagues to the people we support in a personal way, it would be beneficial for your application to reach out to Locality Manager, Jo, (on joanne.dewsberryevan@dimensions-uk.org), or Assistant Locality Manager, Mike (on 07768 973 316), to learn more about the people we support here; who they are, what makes them tick, what they enjoy doing, etc. You can also ask them both for more information about the role, and for details about the shifts we offer.
