Job Advert Role Description

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of support workers / care assistants at Fairhome in Wrexham, part of Priory Adult Care.

  • 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?

Located in Wrexham, Fairhome provides specialist residential support and nursing for 23 adults with functional mental health problems and dual diagnosis with mental health, for example, acquired brain injury and learning disabilities.

Residents are encouraged to develop daily living skills to maximise their independence such as shopping, budgeting and cooking. The service has 24 hour staff support on site, as well as access to full multidisciplinary and primary care services in the local area.

Successful candidates will be motivated to work in a service that offers involvement and empowerment for patients, who may have a personality disorder and/or mental illness, encouraging patients to have a real voice in how services develop and in their individualised care pathways.  You will be flexible and supportive, enabling patients to build on their existing strengths and feel positive about their lives.

Our ideal support worker will:

  • Be reliable, friendly and caring to help our residents achieve their everyday goals (including personal care)
  • Be able to support in house activities and hobbies
  • Be attentive and inspire our residents to achieve more!
  • Be resilient and help manage some behaviours that challenge

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’d like to give you:

  • A competitive salary
  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage
  • Comprehensive induction and commitment to ongoing training
  • 28 days annual leave inclusive of bank holidays
  • Online benefits and cash back rewards
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • SMART Pension option
