Location: Bury St Edmunds
Salary: £7.98 per hour + £1,200 yearly complexity payment + benefits
Deadline: Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 12:00 AM

Avenues is a specialist provider of social care, supporting people with complex needs to enjoy life.

We are looking for  full and part-time support workers to join our team in Bury St Edmunds (Pipestrille Way) to support a young man with mental health needs and behaviours that challenge as he transitions from school into his own home, through a mixture of 2:1 support in the home and the community. 

He enjoys a variety of activities including using his iPad, watching TV shows such as Dr. Who or The Chaser, being read to, and going to the cinema or pantomime – amongst other things.

Our services are shaped around each person, and we work with their families and other professionals to understand what they need. We then support them with everyday activities like taking a shower, making a cup of tea, or trying something new.

And it’s also about working with them on bigger decisions, like where they want to live, or who they want to build relationships with. 

Due to the nature of this role it is desirable for successful applicants to hold a full valid UK driving licence and to have access to their own vehicle.
