Watching someone achieve the remarkable. Giving someone quality time and support. This is why we do it. This is why care. As part of our Adult Social Care team, amazing moments like these will be part of daily life as you support those who need us most. What’s more, you’ll help us take our service to new heights. Add to that an array of brilliant benefits – including an employee assistance programme, tax-free childcare, cycle to work scheme and staff discounts – and you’ve got a rewarding role in every sense.
About the role
As a Residential Support Worker, you’ll be part of a dedicated team at one of our short break units. These centres are designed for adults with learning disabilities and other complex needs, who may display challenging behaviour. Each unit provides 24-hour care for planned, unplanned and emergency stays. In this highly rewarding role, you’ll create a positive, caring and stimulating environment that meets every resident’s needs.
The goal is to make sure residents enjoy fulfilling and dignified lives – and you’ll play a big part in that. Guided by care plans and risk assessments, you’ll help them with personal care and medication, leading shifts as the Officer in Charge if required. Our residents will be relying on you to give your best, so we’ll make sure you get expert support and training.
As well as an NVQ Level 3 (or equivalent) qualification, you’ll have hands-on experience of working with people with learning disabilities. With this background, you’ll be used to administering medication and helping individuals with personal care. Practical and positive, you’ll manage your own workload and work as part of a team. With every opportunity to learn, you’ll also be keen to develop and take our service from strength to strength.
It’s a fantastic time to join Gloucestershire County Council, as we transform our Adult Social Care services. Through our team, we’re helping people with increasingly complex needs to remain independent and have a say in how they live. To succeed, we need people who’ll go the extra mile to see others well and happy, and give families peace of mind. People who know that caring is the most rewarding feeling around.
Join us, and you’ll have a great opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives. Meanwhile, we’ll thank you with a range of excellent benefits and give you the training and support to develop your career. We genuinely care about our colleagues and support their wellbeing.
