If you're looking for a full-time, life-changing, life-enhancing Support Worker role where you can work with a pioneering, award-winning, not-for-profit organisation to make a positive impact every day in the lives of those with learning disabilities and/or autism, then look no further than joining Dimensions, one of the UK's 'Great Places to Work' 2022. Our support workers enjoy not having to worry about costly, time-consuming commutes or having to split their time visiting several homes a day; they experience genuine career progression and opportunities for continual personal and professional growth, plus they revel in having an enviable work-life balance, generous colleague benefits, and appreciate working with like-minded people who champion inclusivity, mental health well-being, and who celebrate diversity.
About the Role
In the small, lively and very friendly village of Combe Down, Bath (BA2), live the three ladies that, alongside your new colleagues, you'll be supporting. The atmosphere in their property is very homely, and each lady enjoys an active lifestyle, for instance; they attend a day centre once a week, attend church on Sundays, they love swimming, rollerskating, going for meals out, and visiting the cinema. Two of the ladies we support are wheelchair users, experience epilepsy, have profound needs, and have communication needs. The ladies also share a mobility vehicle which, if you have a manual drivers license, you might be asked to drive to help them get out and about more and make amazing memories.

What you'll bring to the role
The Honest Bit
At Dimensions, we value candor; which is why we want to tell you that whilst being a support worker is a deeply fulfilling and meaningful role - a role that gives you purpose, and a true sense of accomplishment and satisfaction - it is a job that will, on occasion, push you to your emotional and physical limits. Bonding with people; sharing your life with them, and learning the true art of care, can be both a blessing and a bane. But, for those resilient and courageous enough to recognise that if something makes you feel nervous and asks you to push yourself in order to grow - then it's absolutely something worth doing - despite the possible challenges.
So, if you're sincere about starting a career in care or you're an experienced carer looking to work with a pioneering, award-winning organsiation who cares just as much about you as we do the people we support, don't let nerves hold you back from applying! We can - and will - support you in achieving your aspirations; we will help you live a better life too.
How We'll Support You
At Dimensions, you'll be pleased to hear that the outstanding levels of support we've become known for also extends to each of our colleagues. So, with us, you can rest assured knowing that anything is possible here, and that there are no glass ceilings to hold you back from achieving great things.
