Location

Penfold Lodge, 8-10 Penfold Road, Clacton-on-Sea, Essex CO15 1JN

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of support workers at Penfold Lodge in Clacton-On-Sea, part of Priory Adult Care.

Penfold Lodge is a care home for 18 adults (male and female) who have enduring mental health problems. We provide low secure, locked and open, recovery focused rehabilitation and community housing to support patients' safe and positive reintegration into the community. Our care includes individualised residential care for children, young people and adults, requiring treatment of acute or severe and enduring eating disorders.

As well as the secure and acute services we provide, we also offer specialist residential care and education, specifically designed for young people, aged 13-21 years, with histories of self-injurious behaviours, attachment difficulties and complex presentations.

  • Do you believe that everyone is entitled to the very best care and support?
  • Do you want to make a lasting difference in people’s lives?
  • Do you want to support people to help them achieve their goals, dreams and aspirations?

We do and we are passionate about providing excellent care and support to individuals with learning disabilities, autism, Prader-Willi Syndrome or mental health conditions. As a support worker, you will have the opportunity to be part of 1000s of stories of inspiring care and support for our residents and service users.

As a support worker you will be supporting our residents with their day to day lives, encouraging them to live as independently as possible. You may get involved in exciting activities outside of the home too – our residents/service users participate in day trips, charity events and much more!

Our ideal support worker will:

  • Have a great sense of humour
  • Be reliable, friendly and caring to help our service users achieve their everyday goals (including personal care)
  • Be able to support in house activities and hobbies
  • Be attentive and inspire our service users to achieve more!
  • Be resilient and help manage some behaviours that challenge

Whilst drivers are able to take service users out and about, you don’t need to be a driver to work here – we employ many non-drivers too!

What we’ll give you:

  • A rewarding job, full of variety and opportunities for career development
  • Brilliant, ongoing training to help you achieve more
  • Support of an experienced and friendly team of colleagues
  • A range of salary sacrifice benefits, cashback rewards, pension options and much more!
  • Access to our Career Pathways, which will help shape your career with us – you can work towards goals and milestones that will take your career in whichever direction you wish
Please call Penfold Lodge onif you’d like an informal discussion. We’re also recruiting for Bank Support Workers, so please still get in touch if this may be more suitable for you.
