We are currently looking for a passionate Support Worker to join the ranks of our diverse outreach support team located in the West Cheshire region.
1st Enable's outreach services offer support to anyone aged 16+ with Learning Disabilities or Mental health issues within the comfort of their own home, whether that be through advice, social activities or just being around as a companion and offering emotional support. No two days will ever be the same in this role. Our outreach service offers you the chance to make a genuine difference to people's lives in the heart of the community, who without us may not get the support and companionship that they need.
Who were looking for:
* Our support workers must be kind, compassionate and genuinely enthusiastic about the care and wellbeing of our people. * Our support workers need to use initiative to keep people engaged, for example coming up with ideas for days out or ideas for rainy days at home. * Our support workers MUST be reliable and flexible, support work isn't your typical 9-5 grind! * Driving license and own personal vehicle is a must for this role. * Previous experience isn't required, however a positive and highly social one is!

The Rotas are produced far in advance so you will always know when you are working. Management are very flexible with the rota and if you need to swap a shift, they will always look to accommodate this when they can.
Overtime is on offer, dependent on staff annual leave and sickness. You will also be able to pick up extra shifts in our other services if they have the availability.
