You will be supported to undertake a 26-week probationary period with regular meetings throughout this period to monitor progress and enable us to identify any areas that we can offer you additional support.
There will be the expectation of occasional daytime working to attend training courses.

You don't need to have worked in care before to be a good Support Worker and join our team. If you would like to know some more about this position, please do not hesitate to contact me.
