Job Advert Role Description

Are you a caring and creative person who is passionate about making a real difference to someone’s life?

We are currently looking for a Support Worker to provide care and support for individuals at Priory Adult Care’s The Shielings in Harrogate.

The Shieling is a large Victorian property set over four floors. It is situated on a quiet street overlooking the pine woods, which are part of the famous Valley Gardens.

Within the property, there are large communal areas for people to relax in, and each person is encouraged to personalise their own bedroom. There is a patio area to the front and rear of the house, with tables and chairs ideal for barbecues in the summer months.

Both personal care and participation in activities are key parts of the Support Worker role, so energy, excellent communication and organisational skills are vital.

As a waking night support worker you must be committed to working in a person centred way that promotes independence and social inclusion.

You will be expected to provide support in a way that reflects the wishes and needs of the people you are supporting, and is consistent with their individual support plans.

You will support people to maintain a home of their own and to lead rich and fulfilled lives as valued and contributing members of their community.

Previous experience as a Support Worker or Care Assistant would be beneficial, however it is not essential; all we ask is that you have a willingness to learn and the compassion to care for the people we support.

If you are looking for a rewarding career, we would like to hear from you.

Support Worker benefits include:

  • A competitive salary
  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage
  • Comprehensive induction and commitment to on-going training
  • 28 days annual leave including bank holidays
  • Online benefits and cashback rewards
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • SMART childcare vouchers
  • SMART pension option
