Are you looking for a career where you can make a difference to people’s lives and no two days are the same?

Dimensions are seeking Support Workers to empower the independence of one gentleman we support to at his home in Christchurch near to the town centre.

The gentleman we support, who is in his 40’s and has learning disabilities and autism, is happy to meet a part-time Support Worker (30 hours per week). (Various shift patterns available pay rate of £12.19 per hour). There may be a requirement to undertake sleep-in shifts (paid at an allowance of £45 per shift) in the future but this is not certain at present.

  • Outings to the beach. Avon Beach is a particular favourite

The gentleman we support would like to meet a Support Worker who is happy to bring him fresh ideas of things to do and expand his horizons.

In addition to this, the gentleman we support will need assistance with day-to-day tasks which may include (but not be limited to)

  • Supporting him with his mobility (moving and handling)
  • Assistance with finances
  • Helping with meals
