Are you looking for a new opportunity or thinking about trying a different kind of work?

Supporting someone to maximize their potential and opportunities is one of the most rewarding things you can do with your life, and that is what we do at Scope. Values and attitudes are more important to us than experience and full training is provided to all successful applicants.

About the role

We are looking for waking night support workers to work across our services in Mulberry Court and our community services in Dorset. Mulberry Court is a residential care home for disabled adults, and our community services support disabled adults and their families at home and in the local community.

Each shift is 10am – 8pm, weekdays and weekends, including Bank Holidays. You will work a waking night shift and will have another member of the team present in case needed. You will be supporting some customers to bed, checking the sleeping customers and attending to their needs as they arise i.e. assisting them with any medication, personal care requirements, drinks. As part of your role, you will need to attend training and meetings held in the day.

About you

Respectful, resourceful and reliable with an ability to adapt your approach, you’ll be committed to supporting disabled people to live fulfilling lives. You’ll need clear written and verbal communication skills, as well as a flexible approach to your work. No experience is required, but you must be able to demonstrate the right values and behaviours to make a difference to disabled people’s lives.

We offer an excellent annual leave allowance (35 days including bank holidays for full time staff or pro-rata for part-time staff), full induction and the opportunity to achieve a health and social care diploma.

We're committed to equal opportunities and particularly welcome applications from disabled people.

Successful applicants will need to have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
