Job Advert Role Description

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of Male night support workers at Halifax Drive in Leicester, part of Priory Adult Care.

Located in Leicester, Halifax Drive provides support for 33 adults from the age of 18 with learning disabilities, associated behavioural and mental health conditions. We also support individuals who have communication difficulties or present behaviours that challenge, and predominately have dual diagnosis, as well as a range of other disabilities such as epilepsy or Down’s Syndrome.

  • 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 the individuals living at Halifax Drive. 

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 participate in day trips, charity events and much more!

Previous experience in a similar role is desirable. 

The Role

  • To provide the highest standard of person centred support and care to the people who use our service, maintaining dignity and respect, enabling them to lead as independent lives as possible and realise their potential whilst  ensuring own actions and behaviour comply with corporate policy and local procedures, statutory regulations and quality standards.

  • To undertake keyworking responsibility for individual residents, supporting the individual to plan goals and personal outcomes and ensure that these are comprehensively documented and reviewed.

Whilst drivers are able to take residents 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
