Introduction

Are you looking to develop your career in healthcare?  Whether you are looking for a new career or already work in healthcare and are ready to take the next step, this could be the right role for you. By joining 78 Park Road House as a Support Worker you will gain valuable experience caring for men and women with a range of learning disabilities, including autism and sensory and communication impairments.

You’ll receive all necessary training to get you started and join the dedicated team, where you can make a positive difference and change the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in society. There’s also a huge range of courses on offer to help grow and develop your career. If you have the aspiration, capability and dedication, Elysium Healthcare can give you the support and opportunities to help you achieve your career goals.

It’s a career that you can take pride in knowing that you will be instrumental in encouraging individuals to lead a full and valued life, enabling them to live more independently. You will also enjoy a £500 welcome bonus!

What you will be doing:   

This two-in-one role will see you join an inclusive, supportive team that works well together to provide care to people with learning disabilities and mental health conditions. Whether you have experience as a Healthcare Assistant or transferable skills from another industry, you will use your knowledge and skills to help support people to lead a valued and fulfilled life. 

As a Support Worker you will be supporting service users with all aspects of daily living including personal care at varying degrees. On a day-to-day basis you will be assisting service users with general home tasks including cooking, laundry, and cleaning. You will also support with activities, hobbies, and interests, whether its completing jigsaw puzzles or going on zoo trips.

No two days will be the same as you take pride in safely escorting and driving staff, visitors and service users to local destinations across Southwest London and surrounding areas.

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, or group activities.

You will work on shifts, 7.5 hours a day, between the hours 7am - 2.30pm and 2pm- 10pm, including weekends on a rota basis. Permanent, 37.5 hours, full-time contract. Extra shifts are optional
