At Hightown, we are a housing charity that builds homes and supports people. In Sandhurst, Berkshire we provide high-quality care and support to adults with learning disabilities.

We are looking for some great new Support Workers to join our friendly and supportive team in the town who have the right values, behaviours and attitudes to be the difference.

Who we are looking for

We`re keen to recruit individuals who care regardless of qualifications or experience. We care more about you sharing and demonstrating our values, which are:

  • Putting our residents and service users first

  • Treating people with respect, promoting independence and choice

  • Developing passionate and committed teams

  • Being cost effective without compromising standards or safety

We will give you all the training and support you need to do the role including a qualification in health and social care.

If you share our values, we`d love you to work for us.

You`ll be joining a calm and welcoming service where you`ll be empowering our service users to lead the life they want with the support of a network of staff, family and friends. You will be supported by Hightown to be the difference by, not only providing personal care to the people we support, but also supporting them to take part in a range of activities including going out for a coffee, pottery painting, dancing around the living room with our musician that visits every week, going on small shopping trips or just taking them out for a drive to see the sights of Windsor. The activities will help see our service users overcome their anxieties and needs to lead fulfilling lives.

If this sounds like the right opportunity for you or you want to have an informal chat, please contact us on 01442 292291 or recruitment@hightownha.org.uk
