Support Worker – Floating + Outreach

Working to make a real difference

We are looking for an excellent values driven person for the role of Floating Support Worker plus Outreach across our supported living homes for adults with a learning disability and also out in the community in the Leeds and Brighouse areas. The Charity does not employ agency staff and has a team of dedicated bank and floating staff to support the homes and outreach contracts. During the pandemic our staff are based in one location and this role would initially be based in Leeds.

Do you have a caring nature? Do you like helping people? Can you work in a flexible way? Then you could be part of a dedicated team caring for adults with a learning disability in a supported living setting and / or supporting adults with a learning disability or older people on an outreach basis within the local community;

Our main priority is to find people with the right values and behaviours who can help us to ensure our work place values are at the heart of everything we do. These will be dedicated people, who believe that it is the fundamental right of everyone to be treated in a way that promotes choice and respects their dignity and privacy.

It is not always necessary to have experience. From day one Catholic Care will support you with your learning and development. If this appeals to you then working in our services might just be for you. If you celebrate diversity, value inclusivity, compassion and empathy, we would welcome an application from you.
