2-1 Support Worker, Temporary to Permanent Option, Bangor, Adult Learning Disability Service User, Day Shifts

Your new company
An inspiring NI based organisation who provide Supported Living, Respite, Residential and Day Care Services to adults with moderate to severe Learning Disabilities. Due to a new day care service user this organisation are seeking an experienced Support Worker to join their team.

Your new role
You will work alongside another Support Worker and will provide 2-1 support for an adult male with severe Learning Disability. Due to the nature of his disability you may at times have to physically restrain and so it is desirable that you have MAPA training. Usual hours will be Monday-Friday 10-2 although extra hours may be available.

What you’ll need to succeed
Previous experience in working with Learning Disability is essential, you also must have worked in Social Care for a minimum of 6 months and be able to supply at least two references. Ideally you will have MAPA or equivalent training and will be flexible in terms of work. An up to date NISCC registration is essential as well as an Enhanced Access NI which will be supplied by Hays.

What you’ll get in return
Although this is on a temporary basis to begin with, there is the opportunity for permanency. Having been out to meet the managers and view the setting I can safely say this would be a wonderful place to work. The staff are supportive, the organisation is well laid out and they have an excellent staff retention rate, and it is easy to see why. You will be paid on a weekly basis for your hours and this is directly paid into your bank account.
