Are you a night owl? We need someone to support individuals who have complex needs and carry out some routine tasks. You would be expected to stay awake throughout the night.

The successful candidate will be part of a fantastic team supporting up to four individuals to live independently. The work we do enables the people we support to lead fulfilling lives and is based upon their personal needs. The ideal candidate will have the desire and ability to build and maintain good relationships. You should also have an organised, collaborative and flexible approach to providing the best support possible. A positive, can-do attitude and great communication skills are essential. Does this sound like you?

A knowledge or awareness of the emotional and practical difficulties faced by people with complex support needs would be advantageous, but most important is your willingness to learn and to be creative in your approach to problem solving. Sometimes the work can be challenging, so a good sense of humour and the ability to remain calm in difficult situations is necessary.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain or develop your existing skills. If you can communicate clearly and sensitively with the people we support and their families, and demonstrate an empathy for The Action Group’s values we would love to hear from you.

This is a part time role, with a minimum of nine hours per week. Please indicate how many hours you would like to work in your application.
