Being a support worker at The Camden Society, you will work as part of a motivated team to support people with learning disabilities to live as independently as possible and lead happy and fulfilling lives. It is not always easy, but it is very rewarding. Knowing that you're making a positive and lasting difference to people's lives is a great feeling.
Your support worker role will be varied, and you could be taking people swimming, assisting with the weekly shop, cooking, helping to administer the right medication, or supporting with personal care.
You do not need social care experience, although people with experience are welcomed. We are looking for people who will bring enthusiasm, understanding and motivation, and we will give you all the support and training you need.
You will be reliable and able to work flexible shifts that will include working days, evenings, weekends, bank holidays and sleep-ins.
