Job Introduction

Would you like to be part of a small and highly specialised service which is committed to supporting me with every aspect of my life?

Would you like to work with me and enable me to live as independently as possible in my local community?

Would you like to be well trained, well supported and well paid and know that you are making a positive difference every time you go to work?

About Me

Hi, I am looking for people to support me in my new home in the local community in Whitfield, Dover. I am a man who experiences autism, epilepsy and sometimes I may display behaviour which can be described as challenging.

I enjoy going out and about every day, but I can get anxious when I don't know what is happening, something annoys me or if I don't understand what is going on.

I am lots of fun to be with and want people to work with me who care about me and are dedicated to supporting me to do every day things like eating healthily, keeping fit and learning new skills.

I have my own ways of doing things, which the rest of my team will help you to learn, and if you're the right person, we'll get on great!

I love to go to my favourite parks and for long walks in the countryside and going out for cake!

I love a foot massage as it relaxes me and keeps me calm.

I cannot speak but I can tell you what I want to do by using my picture communication system. You need to learn my language, and we can then have some fun. 

I must have a predictable, structured and consistent routine.

As a member of my team, you will be given full training and induction from my Team Leader and you first few shifts will be alongside her so you can get to know me and I can get to know you!

Shift Patterns

This is a bank contract, if you lead a busy life and want to pick up a few shifts here and there, this would be ideal for you. We have a wide range of shifts including mornings, afternoons, nights and weekends. 

Role Responsibility

What will I be doing?  

This is a hands-on job in which no two days are the same. Your duties will include:

  • Promoting my independence
  • Supporting a full range of daily activities including cleaning and cooking, days out or going away on holiday
  • Arranging activities in the home and in the local community
  • Developing my life skills and personal interests
  • Helping me stay safe and healthy
  • Assisting with my personal care needs
  • Manual handling
  • Supporting me with medication 
  • Ensuring record keeping is maintained to the required standard at all times and contributing to service monitoring requirements
  • The Ideal Candidate

    You must:

  • Be fit and active as I love to go out walking, come rain or shine!
  • Be mature minded and be able to forward plan, helping me develop my skills.
  • Be patient and understanding and do things the way I want them to be done.
  • Be able to work strategically to reduce my anxieties and improve my quality of life.
  • Be able to stick to the rules that will keep me and you safe
  • Have the right attitude and good attendance record
  • Have the ability to work in partnership with my friends and family
  • You will be as part of an established team who can make a positive difference to my life, so you must work well together as a team but be confident to work independently too
