Job Description

Meet Brandon Trust at our Support Worker Recruitment Events. We'll be at Truro Jobcentre (2pm, Wednesday 13 September), White River Place Job Fair, St Austell (10am-1pm, Wednesday 13 September), Newquay Jobcentre (10.30am, Wednesday 20 September), Camborne Job Fair (9.30am-1.30pm, Thursday 21 September), Bodmin (10.30am-12.30pm, Wednesday 27 September) and Camborne (2pm-4pm, Wednesday 27 September). Visit our main website  for details.


Brandon Trust is a charity supporting people with learning disabilities and autism to live more freely with fewer limitations; being a Support Worker here is very rewarding. Why? Because enabling individuals to achieve their goals not only brings a great sense of fulfilment, but also an opportunity to develop your career too.


It’s an inspiring role and a chance to make a positive impact on people’s lives. And not only that we provide a range of flexible benefits as well as full training (including the nationally recognised Care Certificate) and support to help you develop your career.

Learning disabilities and autism affect people in different ways so the role is very varied. Some jobs involve supporting several people living in a shared home and others supporting someone in their own place. 


Your day will involve supporting people with everyday tasks, for example cooking, cleaning their homes and managing finances. Many roles include supporting people with their personal care and medication needs. Find out more about these aspects of the role through videos on our main website.


You’ll also support individuals to access their community to do the things they enjoy, for example shopping, socialising, days out, visiting Day Centres, or accessing education, sporting and job opportunities. You’ll build professional relationships based on trust, respect and understanding. It can at times be a challenging role, but knowing you’ve helped someone achieve their goals is inspiring and rewarding. View our video for an insight into a day in the life of a Support Worker at Brandon:


You’re considerate, committed and respect people’s differences. Empathetic, you adapt your approach to individuals’ needs, have good communication skills and a positive, patient approach. You come up with creative solutions to overcome challenges and have a ‘can-do’ attitude. You’ll need to be flexible and able to work shifts including weekends and evenings/nights, as many roles include a 24/7 rota. It’s also highly desirable (or, in some cases, essential) that you have a full driving licence. For some roles it would be great if you are willing to use your own vehicle on business – we’ll pay mileage expenses for this.


Training and benefits

If you’re new to social care we provide full training (including the nationally recognised Care Certificate, as well as training tailored to the needs of the people you support), a thorough induction and plenty of career development opportunities; we will also support you to gain your Health and Social Care Diploma. And with mentors to support you, you’ll have everything you need to feel confident in your role and to develop a career to be proud of. Find out more about our career pathways on our main website.


Our ‘Choices’ employment contract provides flexible benefits; you can personalise your holiday allowance and pension each year. We also offer a range of additional benefits such as childcare vouchers, a cycle to work scheme and study bursaries.


Successful applicants for this role will require an enhanced DBS check.

We’ll respond to your application within 5 working days. If successful, you’ll be contacted to set up a time for a short telephone interview. If successful, this is followed by a face-to-face interview.


Brandon reserves the right to close this vacancy when sufficient applications have been received.


We are an Equal Opportunities employer and welcome applicants from all sections of the community.
