Our amazing #TeamHalliday in Peterhead are now on the lookout for caring, professional and reliable individuals to join them on a permanent part-time (16 hours) basis. To be considered for these opportunities, we will need you to hold a full UK driving license.

As a Support Worker you'll become part of a friendly team who provides invaluable support to a young gentleman who has autism to live in his own home. As well as supporting this young man with all aspects of his daily living, including personal care, medication, cooking & cleaning, you’ll also support with his hobbies and interests too. Some of his hobbies include swimming, walking, going to the golf range, outings, going for meals and drives in the car.

You don't need experience or qualifications to start your career with us; we recruit on values and transferrable skills. We have our own Training Academy that'll give you all the skills you'll need...…. we'll even put you through your SVQ qualification too!

All we'll need you to bring is: -

* A great listener with great communication skills.
* A caring attitude and approach.
* A positive approach to learning.
* Always seek to go above and beyond what's expected.
* An understanding of the importance of routines and guidelines.
* Confidence to go in the water as swimming is a regular activity.

It would be great if you also have:-

* A knowledge and understanding of autism.

As we're dedicated to providing the best 24/7 support possible, shift patterns will usually fall into patterns of Monday-Friday 1515-2300 or 0700-0915 hours (including a sleepover) and weekend shifts 0900-1600, 1600-2300 and 0700-0900 hours (including a sleepover).

Sound interesting? What are you waiting for? Apply today; we'd love to hear from you!
