Knowing that you’re making a difference to people’s lives is rewarding in itself. But our many roles offer much more than that. As well as helping you grow and develop your talent, we want you to feel proud of where you work and what you do.

Job Advert Role Description

What are we looking for?

 

As a Support Worker on Mersey Lodge, you will be key in supporting an adult with an Autistic Spectrum Condition diagnose and complex challenging behaviours to achieve their goal of living in the community. We are looking for positive, compassionate, and caring support workers who have the right values and attitude to grow and develop within Priory Healthcare

.

The successful candidate will be engaged in a robust, person-centred training programme where you will learn new skills and be encouraged to explore continuing professional development opportunities.

This role can be physically and mentally challenging, therefore a positive attitude, compassion, resilience, and attention to detail are imperative. Working in a Person Centred way is hugely rewarding and empowers the person we support to achieve and reach their potential in life.

 

Who will you support?

I am looking for support workers who are calm, patient and skilled in verbal and non- verbal communication. I would also like my support staff to provide support within my apartment, especially with therapeutic and sensory activities.

 

I am focusing on being comfortable with people in my apartment, (which is in a hospital). I am interested in films and music, so I would like someone who can talk about those things. I enjoy playing football with my support workers and doing exercises, but sometimes I do like the environment to be quiet and I like to have my space.

 

Key Requirements:

•           You must have experience in working with individuals with learning disabilities or mental health conditions.

•           Excellent team working skills, a high level of self-motivation and flexible approach.

•           Committed and dedicated to patient centred care and to values-based and evidence-based practice.
