Community Support Workers

To apply, simply email your CV or expression of interest to

The job of a Support Worker can be demanding, but also extremely rewarding.  Supporting people to live independently, maintain well being and enhance their quality of life requires you to understand that every individual needs different support depending on their unique interests and personal needs.  This could include goal achievement, personal care, supported cooking, outings to various locations – the list is endless!

We currently provide support to people in the local community who have autism and associated learning difficulties. The support we provide ranges from as little as an hour here and there to full-time support in assisted-living or private homes.

We’d love to hear from you if you wish to pursue a career in the health or social care profession, or simply have a genuine enthusiasm to support those on their road to independence.  We’re ideally looking for individuals who:

  • Possess a can do, positive and caring attitude
  • Have the ability to be flexible to support the changing needs of the  people you will be supporting
  • Are able to work on your own and as part of a team
  • Are able to commit to working some weekends and evenings

What we can give you in return:

  • Competitive salary of between £8.15 -£8.85 ph (depending on experience)
  • A fully comprehensive training package
  • 28 days holiday including bank holidays which increases by 1 day each year of service, up to 33 days (pro rata for part-time employees)
  • Ongoing personal development including regular 1-2-1s with your line manager
  • Pension

We have a range of contracted positions available in different locations both in the Bournemouth area and across Dorset.  To apply, simply email your CV or expression of interest to
