Leading Lives provides social care support for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs in the home and in the community across Suffolk and neighbouring counties. We are a not-for-profit social enterprise, owned by our employees. Any surplus we make is reinvested back into services for our customers or into the local community.

We are seeking a Support Worker to support our customer 'J'.
J loves animals and has a pet budgie. J likes to visit places like animal farms, as well as shopping and going to the seaside.
J would like support with their food choices, and encouragement to go shopping and cook some meals.
J is looking for a friendly, animal-loving person with a bubbly personality.

Whilst experience in a similar organisation / role would be advantageous, we believe that the right values and attitudes are also important when recruiting new staff.

Ideally, we are looking for applicants with a full driving licence and access to their own vehicle, to support J's lifestyle and to access more places. You will need to be able to commit to working weekends.

Could you be the right person to support J lead the life they choose? We would love to hear from you.

We offer:

  • salary increase following a successful probation period
  • competitive salary and pension scheme, matching up to 8%
  • holiday package, increasing with service and the opportunity to purchase additional holiday
  • comprehensive and bespoke training, including full induction
  • opportunities to complete a Care Certificate, QCF and develop your career through our Career Pathway
  • flexible working opportunities
  • occupational sick pay.

* actual salary £11,526 (to increase following a successful probation).
