Support Worker job in Coventry

Your new company

This setting is in Coventry, and they promote the independent living of adults with substance misuse, criminal backgrounds, homelessness and schizophrenia. You will be making sure the adults are doing okay, and sometimes going on trips with them to the shops, town or to the doctors.

Your new role

They are looking for people who are laid back, and able to work in a slow-paced environment, so if you have experience working in a supported living setting, rather than residential, this may be more suited to you. This setting needs people doing days shifts as well as waking nights. You will need to have medication administration training and/or experience to be able to work the waking nights at this setting as this is essential.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to have medication administration training and/or experience to be able to work the waking nights at this setting as this is essential. You will need to be a patient and calm person, as this is independent living with support when needed. You will be a understanding person, and preferably have experience working with adults with mental health issues in the past. You will need at least 6 months experience within the last 2 years. If you have never worked in a Social Care background, you will not be considered for this role.

What you'll get in return

Hays will pay for your DBS check, if you are not currently on the update service, we also offer training courses where applicable. You will receive £9 per hour, and get to chose the flexibility of when you work, and when you want the day off.
