Support Worker – TLC Care Homes – Saffron Walden

Permanent, Full Time and Part Time

£10.25 per hour

Location: Saffron Walden

Essex County Council (ECC) are delighted to be supporting TLC Care Homes to recruit Support Workers for their supported living facilities across Saffron Walden.

The shift patterns vary with both full time and part time hours available and will require day, night and weekend working. Shift times can be discussed at interview stage.

TLC supports people with a range of needs and their person-centred approach means they listen to every individual about how they would like to spend their time, giving them the choice about what they would like to do with their lives. This enables TLC to develop a support plan which focuses on helping them become more independent, by maximising opportunities, minimising the amount of intervention required with challenging behaviour and teaching coping strategies.

TLC are looking for Support Workers to join their fantastic team based on Saffron Walden to support adults with learning disabilities, autism and complex mental health needs to maximise their potential and increase their independence, choice, and community inclusion.

Support Workers provide a high level of personal, physical, and emotional care that can include all aspects of day-to-day activities, personal care, and companionship. Despite its expected challenges, being a TLC Support Worker is a role that is incredibly rewarding.
