If you agree that being a Senior Support Worker is a highly valuable and rewarding role - and if you're based in Taunton, Somerset, or within commuting distance, and want to earn up to £18,369 - this opportunity could be for you.

Earning £18.369 a year for a 37-hour week (which can include morning/evening shifts and weekends) our client offers an enhanced overtime rate plus Life Assurance and access to childcare vouchers.

You'll also be entitled to significant benefits, including:
. Paid training
. Industry recognised qualifications
. Fully funded DBS/PVG
. And much more

Working as an experienced Senior Support Worker as part of a motivated and inclusive team in Taunton, Somerset, you'll assist individuals with learning difficulties and other complex needs. A group of colleagues will fully support you, and additional on-site training will be provided.

If you'd have been working in this well-paid, Somerset-based Senior Support Worker role last week, you would have:
. Provided support and assistance to people in accordance with their support plans
. Undertaken initial and ongoing assessments of clients
. Been a critical worker for people with complex or multiple needs
. Devised, reviewed and updated support plans, recorded events and observations and kept appropriate records as required

You must have previous experience of working in a similar care environment, as well as experience managing a small team of staff. Being a driver is advantageous but not required. Most important is that you have a passion for making a difference in people's lives and the experience and skills to do so.

If this rewarding Support Worker role is the career opportunity you're looking for, please get in touch today for an initial conversation.
