Job Advert Role Description

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of Waking Night Support Workers at Lansdowne Road in Aylestone, Leicester, part of Priory Adult Care.

Lansdowne Road is a 26 bedded residential service for adults with learning disabilities, autism and associated mental health difficulties. The service has 4 houses within the building, to support adults who wish to be more independent and also for those who require additional support. The service supports adults to maintain their own level of personal independence through various life skills and chosen activities. 

  • 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 our residents. 

As a Waking Night Support Worker you will support the service users to ensure they have maintained their levels of personal care, provide support through the night to any service user who may require this, ensure adequate cleaning of the service in line with infection prevention control procedures and general support for service users.

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 Lansdowne Road on 01162 834 025  if you’d like an informal discussion.
