Support Worker (Service Specific), Doncaster

We are recruiting to the support team of a young female customer who is based in Hatfield area of Doncaster.  Our customer has autism and complex needs so we are looking for support workers who are patient and can plan new activities to keep her interested and engaged in the support.

Due to our customer having support needs with personal care, only female applicants can be considered for this role.  This is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010.  Other support needs include help with managing her home environment and meeting daily living needs, as well as accessing the community and engaging in local activities.

The customer is supported 24 hours a day, so you must be able to work a variety of shifts which will include evenings, weekends and sleepovers on a rota basis. Of course, there will be an opportunity to work with other customers here at Avalon if you are available to work more hours.

We would welcome applications from those looking for either full and part time hours. You don’t need to have any experience as our in-house training team will ensure that you have all the additional skills you need to deliver the role with confidence but you do need the drive and compassion to help our customers to live great lives.

Who are we?

Avalon Group (Social Care) is an adult social care charity providing person-centred support to working age adults, promoting independence and choice in their everyday lives. To do this we need people who are enthusiastic about using their existing skills to help others.

Why work for us?

Our current rate for customer contact time is £11.50 per hour with further enhancements paid for weekends and Bank Holidays. We pay travel expenses between consecutive sessions of support.

We will cover the cost of your Enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) Certificate which is essential for this role.

As an Avalon employee you will get exclusive access to discounts on gym memberships and at high street retailers such as Boots, M&S and Sports Direct. You will also be able to join an employee assistance scheme, which is a 24/7 advice service giving you impartial guidance regarding any personal matters or concerns you may have.

Interested?  Then get in touch now by calling 01302 739178 for an informal discussion.

**This advert contains vacancies for a particular appointment with genuine occupational requirements due to the customer support needs.

We strive to ensure equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from suitably skilled candidates regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexuality or religion.

    As The Avalon Group meets the requirements in respect of exempted questions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, all applicants who are offered employment will be subject to a criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service before the appointment is confirmed.

    Criminal records will be taken into account for recruitment purposes only when the conviction is relevant. Having a ‘spent’ or ‘unspent’ conviction will not necessarily bar you from employment – this will depend on the circumstances and background to your offence(s) and we will consider these on a case by case basis.

    The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
