Job Advert Role Description

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of support workers at Ogilvie Court in Colchester, Essex, part of Priory Adult Care.

At Ogilvie Court, we provide 24/7 continuous support for 25 Adults of all ages living with autism, learning disabilities, Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and behaviours that challenge in a homely environment. Staff are trained to provide support tailored to individuals’ needs and wishes which are wide-ranging within the service.  Some of the people we support wish for our help with administering medication, providing personal care, cooking, cleaning and communication. For others their wishes may be to access medical services, financial support and access to the community or to paid employment.

We do and we are passionate about providing excellent care and support to our residents.

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!

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!
