It’s not just a job, it’s a life experience. Join us and help us change lives.
Would you like to join our dedicated team in Evesham supporting individuals with profound multiple learning difficulties, in all aspects of their lives. You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job – you’ll get plenty of training along the way. It’s great if you already have experience of learning disabilities, autism or dementia, but this is by no means essential.
What matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people to live their life with as much independence, choice, dignity and control as possible.
You will be required to work shift patterns over 7 days a week including occasional sleep-ins (sleep-ins attract an additional payment). Additional hours are available.
This can be a rewarding job for the right person and you can make a difference to people’s lives. Life experiences are essential. Hft offers 20 days annual leaving rising to 25 after the first year, plus eight customary days for Bank Holidays. We also offer a contributory pension scheme plus other company benefits.
Join us and help change lives.
STRICTLY NO AGENCIES PLEASE

Where you will be working: Clementi Court, Evesham
Reports to: Cluster Manager, Senior Support Worker
This job is important because:
You will enable the people we support to lead fulfilling lives based upon their personal support needs. You need to work to the standards set internally (by Hft) and externally (for example, by the Care Quality Commission), doing all you can to make sure that the people we support and your colleagues come to no harm and that the people we support are satisfied with the level of support they receive. You will achieve this by communicating with individuals and by following the underpinning principles of Person Centred Active Support (PCAS):
As we provide 24/7 support you need to be able to work shifts, including weekends, some nights and Bank Holidays. You will also be required to accompany people we support on holidays and attend training courses and other activities.
These are the qualities and behaviours that Hft support staff must have.
The first four areas are standard across Hft, the final, person-centred, area is to suit the particular service, and the people it supports, for this particular vacancy.
Communication – we need people who
Respect – we need people who
Cares About – we need people who
Creative Thinking – we need people who
Person Centred ‘must haves’ – we need people who
