Who are United Response
United Response is a well-established, national charity with an excellent track record in supporting young people and adults who have learning disabilities, mental health needs and physical disabilities to live the life they want.
Our East Devon services include residential and accommodation based care and support as well as a range of well-being and community based services. We believe in taking a Person Centred approach with a focus on enabling the people we support to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. We are passionate about championing the right of disabled people to live, work, socialise and participate in the community, free of discrimination and unnecessary boundaries.
What we need from you
We are looking for dynamic and reliable people with experience of care and support in a Health and Social Care role. An understanding of how to support people with complex needs and limited verbal communication would be desirable, as would experience of communicating through Makaton and BSL, although training will be provided to successful applicants. You will be; caring, confident, assertive and self-motivated and must be committed to promoting the independence of the people with disabilities. Ideal candidates will be flexible and be able to use initiative. A full UK manual driving licence would be desirable but not essential.
In return for your passion and commitment, we offer a comprehensive benefits package including:
Annual leave entitlement paid as an additional 12.07% of the hourly rate (£1.00) for each hour worked up to 37.5 hours per week
Access to free occupational health, physiotherapy, counselling and advice services
Fully paid training and access to nationally recognised qualifications
Paid travel expenses
