Job description

Introduction

If you care for others without a second thought and are looking for weekend work where you can make a difference to the lives of people with Acquired Brain Injuries, progressive neurological conditions, Autism Spectrum Conditions and Deaf Mental Health problems, then join St Mary’s as a Support Worker working two shifts at weekends on a permanent basis and enjoy a £500 Welcome bonus (pro rata) on top of your salary.

Whether you are looking for a new career or already work in healthcare through the NHS or private sector, join the Elysium team on a part-time basis working weekends only and feel valued and supported, with a 2-week paid induction course and career development opportunities. 

If you are looking to change careers to become a Support Worker for the first time using your transferable skills and personality traits, then  to gain insights into the reality of working in this environment. Its highly rewarding but quite challenging and can be different to what you might expect. 

It’s a career that you can take pride in while enjoying the satisfaction of helping people and seeing them improve. It’s what delivering great healthcare should feel like. 

We strongly encourage people to be vaccinated in line with current guidance from the Government and professional bodies

What you will be doing  

You will join an inclusive, supportive team that works well together to provide care to people with mental health. Whether you have experience as a Support Worker, Healthcare Assistant or Care Worker, you will use your knowledge and skills to help support people lead a valued and fulfilled life. 

It can be quite a challenging environment at times, so a positive attitude, compassion, resilience and vigilance are important. But it is hugely rewarding to see people improve; being able to do something today that they couldn’t do last week because of you. 

You will have access to the Elysium Wellbeing team, which is on hand to keep you feeling great; be it a chat, massage or group activities. Who doesn’t like a free massage at work? 

With a huge range of courses that will help you grow and succeed, if you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, Elysium Healthcare can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals. 

The shift patterns include working nights and days over weekends, 12.5 hours shifts.

Join the team at St Mary’s providing specialised services for people with Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI), progressive neurological conditions, Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Deaf Mental Health problems, with a layout that enables you to deliver care within a low stimulus, spacious environment.

You will work as part of the multidisciplinary team to ensure those in care are supported to make decisions and access the community.  Skills are taught and support given to promote recovery and develop confidence in order for them to live a more independent life.

What you will get 

  • Annual salary of £11,650.50
  • £500 Welcome Bonus (pro rata)
  • Receive a Blue Light Card once you start with us
  • The equivalent of 33 days annual leave – plus your birthday off!
