Part Time Support Worker

The Avalon Group

Join an award winning charity and change the lives of local people every day. No experience necessary, as full training is provided. Make a real difference.

We have a part time Support Worker vacancy in the Craven District. This post is for 20 hours per week, though we can offer some flexibility for the right candidate. We will work with you from the very start to identify your individual career goals so that we can support you to become exactly who you want to be. You can expect to earn £7.50 per hour for day support with an enhanced rate for weekends and sleepover shifts (please note this role could include sleepovers - hourly rate up to £8.94).

We will reward your commitment with free award winning training (which you are paid to attend), discounts at retailers including Apple; Sports Direct; Boots and Alton Towers, access to a wellbeing service which helps with personal matters such as finances; relationships and health, and we also allow you to be yourself by not asking you to wear a uniform.

The Role

As a Support Worker you will listen to our customers, what they want to do and what they want to achieve. We are not a Residential Care provider and your approach will be specifically tailored to the person you are supporting, their goals and their aspirations. Providing them with encouragement and support is also a huge part of making a difference to their lives.

Who Can Apply?

You don’t need experience, just the drive and compassion to help our customers achieve their goals. Please note being a car driver is essential to this role.

Who We Are

We are an award-winning charity providing support to a wide range of individuals including those with learning and/or physical disabilities, dementia or mental health problems. We pride ourselves on spending quality time with our customers and do not undertake 15 minute calls.
