Job Advert Role Description

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of support workers at Sapphire House in Maidstone Kent, part of Priory Adult Care.

Sapphire House is a 7 bedded residential care service which supports the needs of individuals with a diagnosis of autism, communication difficulties and behaviours that can challenge. The home is near the town of Maidstone Kent and is close to all main travel routes for easy access. This is a service that offers an exciting opportunity to join Craegmoor part of the Priory Group which is one of the leading care providers in the united Kingdom.

  • Do you believe that everyone is entitled to the very best care and support?
  • Do you want to make a lasting difference in people’s lives?
  • Do you want to support people to help them achieve their goals, dreams and aspirations?

We do and we are passionate about providing excellent care and support to individuals with learning disabilities, autism, Prader-Willi Syndrome or mental health conditions. As a support worker, you will have the opportunity to be part of 1000s of stories of inspiring care and support for our residents and service users.

As a support worker you will be supporting our residents with their day to day lives, encouraging them to live as independently as possible. You may get involved in exciting activities outside of the home too – our residents/service users participate in day trips, charity events and much more!

Our ideal support worker will:

  • Have a great sense of humour
  • Be reliable, friendly and caring to help our service users achieve their everyday goals (including personal care)
  • Be able to support in house activities and hobbies
  • Be attentive and inspire our service users to achieve more!
  • Be resilient and help manage some behaviours that challenge

Whilst drivers are able to take service users out and about, you don’t need to be a driver to work here – we employ many non-drivers too!

What we’ll give you:

  • A rewarding job, full of variety and opportunities for career development
  • Brilliant, ongoing training to help you achieve more
  • Support of an experienced and friendly team of colleagues
  • A range of salary sacrifice benefits, cashback rewards, pension options and much more!
  • Access to our Career Pathways, which will help shape your career with us – you can work towards goals and milestones that will take your career in whichever direction you wish

Please call Sapphire House on 01622 673 776 if you’d like an informal discussion. We’re also recruiting for Bank Support Workers, so please still get in touch if this may be more suitable for you.
