Weekend Support Worker - Respite Centre

Job Introduction

‘Are you looking for a job where you can make a real difference?’

Weekend Respite Support Worker – Southampton - £13.09 per hour for weekends, £12.09 per hour for weekdays

We are The Rose Road Association, a Registered Charity providing essential Care and support Services in Southampton. We are passionate about supporting children and adults with Learning disabilities, Physical disabilities and/or Autism.  We are seeking to recruit a Great Support Worker, someone with the right values and attitudes to work in our Overnight Respite facility in Southampton – could this be you?

This role requires you to have at least 6 months experience either within a previous care/support worker role or other relevant experience and you do need to be over 18 years for this role. 

This important role provides support to our children and young adults staying overnight at our Respite facility to enable well-being and independence and provide parent carers with a break from caring.

Because the children and adults who stay with us are individuals, no two days are the same. One day you might be needed to assist with personal care (washing, dressing and feeding) or hoisting while on other days, you could be taking part in fun activities within or outside the home like soft play, swimming, watching movies in our purpose built cinema, going bowling or eating out. It’s a really varied job that is hugely rewarding and makes a positive difference to the lives of local young people.

Your hours will be worked between our core hours of 7am to 9pm on Saturdays and Sundays and extra hours are available on School holidays too, so this is an ideal position for a student or someone working on a term time contract. We recognise that you need down time to yourself, so you'll only have to do three weekends in every four. For any hours worked during weekdays, the rate of pay is £12.09 per hour. 

However, beyond the necessary qualifications and skills, what truly matters to us is finding someone who shares our values:

We are Trustworthy
We are Kind
We are Open & Honest
We are Forward Thinking
We are Professional

Apply on the link below. You will be asked to register your details with Staff-finda and to upload your CV.  You will have access to the full Job Description and person specification and an opportunity for you to tell us about your personal qualities and why you believe that you are right for this role.

Alongside this fulfilling role we offer:

  • High Quality Training
  • Pension Scheme
  • Employee discount scheme
  • Free Employee Assistance and Wellbeing programme with 24/7 cover
