Waking Nights Support Workers

£9.80 per hour

Warrington

Full-time & part-time contracts available

Do you want to go to work every night knowing that you’re making a difference; knowing that you’re supporting others to live their lives the way they choose? It takes empathy, compassion, and commitment to be a Support Worker and if these are qualities you already have, then we can provide you with all the training you need to set you up for a fantastic career in social care!

No previous experience is required. We just ask that you share our values of “respect”, “partnership”, “courage”, “ambition” and “integrity”, that you’re committed to learning, and that you strongly believe that everyone deserves to live the life they choose – if this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you!

The Role:

The people we support have learning disabilities and autism, and often they may have additional physical and mental health needs. The level of support you will be providing will vary depending on the person you are supporting.

During a waking night shift, you can expect to support people with their bedtime routines, provide physical and emotional support if they are wakeful, monitor assistive technology alarms, complete administration tasks and support with personal care, cleaning and laundry.

Shifts can vary depending on the person you’re supporting but are typically 10pm – 7am. We’re looking for people who can be flexible to work waking night shifts during the week, at weekends and the occasional bank holiday. 

The Rewards:

Dimensions are also proud to be one of very few social care organisations that have been recognised by the Great Places to Work programme in 2019, 2020 & 2021. As well as a comprehensive induction, full training and continued support from management, our colleagues have access to:

  • 30 days annual leave
  • Paid training
  • A comprehensive well-being strategy and staff listening network
  • Discounts and cash back on shopping worth £500 a year
  • Childcare vouchers
  • £200 bonus for recommending a friend to us if they go on to be successfully employed
  • Discounts on meals, health clubs, and car, home and travel insurance 

If you have any further questions and would like to discuss the role in more detail, please call Leanne on 07342 038 724.
