Hightown is a charitable housing association transforming thousands of lives every year. We do this by building hundreds of much needed new homes and providing care and supported housing services to a wide range of people.
About the Role
We currently have opportunities for Part time Assistant Support Workers to join our Young People`s Housing service, based in Hemel Hempstead.
Working as part of a dedicated team, your role as an Assistant Support Worker is to provide appropriate individual support to young people aged 16 - 24. You will be actively involved in agreeing support plans and risk assessments to enable young people to achieve their goals and aspirations and work to empower them to become independent.
We are looking for people who enjoy a challenge and are committed to enabling the young people in our service to move forward positively in their lives.
Are you someone who would like to make a difference? Are you interested in working in the Care & Support sector? Do you have something to offer to our service and the Young People that we support? Are you looking to try something different?
You must be able to work on your own and as part of a team to deliver an excellent service to the people we support and be flexible in your approach to work. You will have a commitment to equality and diversity and take a positive approach to supporting young people. Our rota is 365 days a year with shifts starting no earlier than 10am and finishing no later than 10pm.
Experience in some form of care is desirable but not essential as full training and ongoing development opportunities will be provided for the right person.
We offer a range of benefits which include:
Generous annual leave allowance of 25 days per year, rising with service, plus statutory bank holidays (pro rata)
Workplace pension scheme
45 pence per mile mileage for the first 5,000 miles
Life assurance of three times your annual salary
Comprehensive training and development support with the opportunity to gain a recognised vocational qualification
Annual bonus based on satisfactory performance
