Job Description

Meet Brandon Trust at our Support Worker Recruitment Events. We'll be at Bishopsworth Jobcentre (11am-2pm, Tuesday 12 September), Kingswood Park Centre (11am-2pm, Tuesday 19 September), Knowle Park Centre (11am-2pm, Tuesday 26 September) and Horfield Jobcentre (10am-2pm, Wednesday 27 September). Visit our main website  for details.


Brandon Trust Support Workers are at the heart of our unique approach to supporting people with learning disabilities and autism to live lives with fewer limitations. You’ll join a team who support 14 individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities in a homely environment, in the Cadbury Heath area of South Gloucestershire, near Bristol. 


Our ‘Choices’ employment contract gives you the freedom to tailor your benefits to suit your needs; you can personalise your holiday and pensions benefits each year. We also offer a range of additional benefits including childcare vouchers, a cycle to work scheme, sponsorship for your Health & Social Care Diploma plus additional study bursaries. We also offer full induction, support and training and on-going career development.


We understand that everyone has different needs and that disabilities affect people in very different ways; you’ll therefore provide tailored day-to-day support. Your day could include, for example, supporting individuals to maintain contact with their families and attend social activities both within the home and out in the community. You might also support someone to go on holiday and also attend hospital appointments. You will also enable individuals in day-to-day activities, including support with eating and drinking and personal care; find out more about these aspects of the role through videos on our website.


As part of the team of staff you'll also participate in running the home including washing, cooking, shopping and cleaning. It’s a job that can be challenging at times, but this is balanced by the sense of long-term satisfaction it gives; it’s a career that you can feel proud of. Find out more about being a Support Worker:


You’re compassionate, you love working with people, have their wellbeing as your top priority, and are able to build relationships based on trust, respect and consideration. You’ll also need to be patient and understanding of people’s varied needs; able to adapt your pace to match theirs. A confident problem solver and a creative thinker with good communication skills, you’ll overcome challenges with positivity, commitment and enthusiasm. You'll also need to be able to work with behaviours that challenge.


We offer an extensive induction and training programme which is designed to ensure that you feel confident and knowledgeable; we will tailor training around your needs and the needs of the people you’ll be supporting.


You’ll need to be flexible around shift and weekend work as many roles include a 24/7 rota. It will be highly desirable that you have a full driving licence and are able and willing to use your own vehicle on business (for which mileage expenses will be paid).


You don’t need any specific qualifications or experience; in fact, we value individuality and welcome applications from all backgrounds. We can also provide sponsorship to help you gain professional qualifications such as your Health and Social Care Diploma and NVQ qualifications.


Successful applicants for this role will require an enhanced DBS check. We are an Equal Opportunities employer and welcome applicants from all sections of the community.
