At Turning Point, we support people across England with mental health issues. As a Support Worker, you'll make a real difference to their lives as you introduce them to the personal, flexible and realistic support they need to improve the quality of their lives in their communities. Passionate about people, you'll enjoy the scope and support to enhance your own life and career too, as you gain the experience, training and education you need to progress in your career with us.
As part of our Tameside Supported Accommodation, you'll work one-to-one with service users, preparing their support plans and gaining a full understanding of their needs and concerns. Helping them with everything from their benefits to booking medical appointments, you'll need to love talking to people with different needs, be interested in helping them and possess a deep level of empathy, understanding and patience.
We're looking for a Support Worker who knows how to build close relationships and gain people's trust quickly. You don't need any formal qualifications as full training will be given, although NVQ in Social Care would be a big advantage. What is essential is that you have at least 12 months proven experience in a similar role along with a good awareness of mental health problems and can bring with you the flexibility to work in across a shift pattern, including evenings and weekends.
