Do you need a secure job in an uncertain world? Have you considered a career change, utilising your transferrable skills? Are you confident with a strong sense of responsibility and like keeping people safe? Are you a good communicator and a team player?
Southdown are looking for people to work with young people with autism and learning disabilities in our state of the art, flagship service in East Brighton. You’d be working in a team, delivering support to a fit and strong 18 year old man who likes to be physically active -walking, swimming, running… and you’d need to be able to keep up!
Starting salary is £9.73 per hour plus our comprehensive benefits package. You don’t need qualifications or experience.
We are looking for people who are confident, have good observation skills, are fit and agile (e.g. as a minimum, be physically able to run for 5 minutes without stopping and swim 25 metres) and at times, be prepared to help keep our client and others stay safe through the use of agreed physical interventions.
You need to be consistent and stay calm under pressure. You need to be adaptable and committed to helping people with learning disabilities get the most out of life.
Ideally, you would have a full manual driving licence to be able to drive our vehicles but it’s not essential.
You can work your way up; there are many training and promotion opportunities. You will be part of a diverse and inclusive group of different ages, ethnicities and nationalities too, not to mention feel really supported and part of a team. In short, you will have all you need to build a great career with the largest provider of housing, care and support in Sussex.
