Job Description

Support Worker



Are you:

  • Good at working with people and a good communicator?

  • Person centred and enjoy working to support others to lead a quality life?

  • Looking for a new opportunity?

    We are Consensus, an innovative award-winning independent provider of support services for people with learning disabilities and additional health and social care needs.

    We believe everybody can achieve their aspirations and do amazing things. Our role is to provide person-centred support – support that starts each person we support on the road to greater independence, empowering them to reach their full potential.

    As part of a key-working team, you’ll work with the people we support to develop new daily living skills, to address behaviours that may challenge, make new friends, get involved in their community, support with their own personal care, go on holiday, or find themselves a new job. Liaising closely with their friends and family, as well as your team, you’ll make sure they are safe, happy, healthy and full of plans for the future.

    But why choose us?
    We couldn’t achieve what we do without our amazing teams. We believe in our people and want to ensure you feel appreciated and supported at every step of your journey with us. For this reason, we offer an excellent range of benefits as listed below.

  • Great rates of pay - £17,680 per year (based on full time hours), with a clearly defined career path to Senior Support worker level which offers £18,772

  • One place of work – We operate residential/supported living services, meaning you’ll not need to worry about travelling from location to location

  • Flexible hours – enabling you to balance work and home life

  • Voluntary Benefits Package – offering amazing retail discounts at over 8,000 locations nationwide, enabling our staff to make savings of up to £1,500 per year

  • Personalised career path ladders including support with your Care Certificate to ensure fulfilling career development

  • Learning and Development programme with full induction training including buddy system

  • Childcare vouchers

  • Employee Assistance Programme – Immediate access to a confidential telephone counselling and legal information service which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

  • Online Health Portal - All colleagues have access to the online health portal which enables you to make the most of full access to an encyclopedia of health information

    The skills you’ll need
    To join us, you won’t necessarily need to have experience working with those with learning disabilities (although this would be ideal), but you will share our values. Choice & Respect; Ambition & Imagination; Reliability & Professionalism; Honesty & Integrity; Responsibility & Accountability; Inclusive & Supportive. Above all, you’ll be committed to providing person-centered care that gives real equality of opportunity to all those you’re working for.

    If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
