We currently have multiple opportunities within our company:

 

Learning Support Staff required

We require learning support staff to join our friendly, supportive and growing team working with adults with mild to moderate learning disabilities in our day service setting (day centre), at our enterprise cafe and second hand shop and out in the community. Our clients are very independent so its mostly leading activities, encouragement, motivating them, planning activities, recording evidence on paperwork and no real hands on care is needed. Every day is different and every day brings laughter.  This is an exciting and varied role with supportive colleagues and managers.

We strongly recommend you check out our instagram and Facebook accounts to get a feel for what it is like to work at Reddi Support - search "Reddi Support" and "Cups and Saucers Cafe and Shop".

Must haves:

You must be confident and responsible with a fun personality!

Let us tell you about the role:

The role is enjoyable, varied and the service users we support are wonderful and so much fun!

Please read in detail as the role has different aspects to it:

(a) One aspect of the role is - you will be supporting small groups of people to participate in a range of activities from Cooking, Drama, Dance, Photography, Art and Craft, IT, Zumba, day trips, swimming, gym, literacy, numeracy, enterprise both in the community and at our bases in Redditch. The role will involve leading and providing support to groups. You may be working alongside other colleagues or lone working (full training and shadowing provided before this happens).

(b) Another aspect of the role will be based at our second-hand shop and cafe in Redditch. This is an established enteprise and you will run the shop/cafe alongside four service users - supporting them to serve customers, prepare food and drinks, rotate stock and clean. The service users have beeen working there for two years and have routines and tasks established. Full training and extensive shadowing is provided for this. Eventually this part of the role will involve lone working.

(c) Another part of the role will involve supporting our service users in the community - this involves picking them up from their home and supporting them to go shopping, go cinema, for food such as lunch or breakfast, pub, walks, places of interest etc. This may be on a 1-1 basis or it may be two friends who want to go out together with support staff. This will include picking people up from their homes in Redditch, Bromsgrove or Droitwich - hence the need for a driver.

(d) Finally - we also offer at least 2 residential holidays per year to our service users. These are usually 4 night breaks to Butlin's. Alongside other colleagues you will be required to support service users on this short break/holiday. We require the candidate to be willing to participate in one of these holidays per year. You will be paid extra for this. The next holiday would be in 2025 as the 2024 holidays have already been planned.

Full induction and training provided.

Adult workforce DBS check essential - cost met by employee and reimbursed after 12 weeks and at least 2 satisfactory references required.

Immediate start available subject to the above.
