That's why we have an excellent package that combines a competitive salary with benefits including:

  • 35 days annual leave and public holidays

  • A childcare voucher scheme with Computershare
  • Shift patterns and flexible working

Support work is very skilled, which is why we have teams, training, staff supervision and a strong set of values to guide us. This helps both new and experienced workers. It is exciting, rewarding and challenging work, with an element of doing routine work as well. Workers will need to do personal care for some people and not for others. Some people may need a worker with them all the time, some people 2 or 3 times a day and some less often.
