The Role

We are looking for a Support Worker to join our team at our Simmins Crescent residential home, based in Eyres Monsell, to support people who have visual impairments and learning disabilities.

You will be required to work 37 hours per week and flexibly over a 24-hour period, seven days a week on a shift pattern, including weekends and bank holidays.

In this role you will:

  • offer emotional, physical and social support to each individual living in the bungalow.
  • be aware of the communication needs of each individual and to ensure that they are always fully met.
  • support each individual to make choices in all aspects of their life.
  • support activities that respond to individual preferences, both within the bungalow and in the local community.
  • need to demonstrate compassion, adaptability and integrity.

Previous experience of working with people in a residential or health setting is desirable but not essential as full training will be provided.

When rostered to work weekends and bank holidays you will be paid, at an enhanced hourly rate.

In return you will receive a competitive salary in line with the Health & Social care sector, and a generous benefits package and investment in your personal growth with continuous training.

Working for Vista means you will be working for one of the oldest and largest local charities in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, working with people with sight loss and their families.
