Recruitment Day: Support Workers Wanted

If you want to help individuals with disabilities to make choices, take control of their own lives, and be happy and safe people who can dream, have hope and ambition then New Directions needs you. Our growing charity is hosting a Recruitment Day on Saturday 9th September between 10-2 at The Exchange, Rugby, CV21 2SA. You can meet managers for an informal chat to answer your questions about training available, career opportunities, shift work, casual work, employee benefits, or how to apply for current vacancies. You can become part of our team as a Support Worker, make a real difference in your community and develop your career in Health and Social Care.

Being a support worker is a rewarding opportunity for people who are passionate about maximising independence for everyone. New Directions needs people who are good motivators and flexible as there will be some evening and weekend shifts. No experience is necessary as the charity has a thorough training programme but if you are a quick learner, hardworking and ready to use new technologies that make your job easier then you will soon develop your career. This event is open to existing support workers or people who are new to this role. As a Support Worker you will also provide personal, physical and emotional support to disabled people who require assistance to live the life they choose at home and in the community.

Human Resources Manager Lorna Brindley said, “New Directions is a forward thinking charity and the requirement of its roles as a Support Worker has changed over the years with the advance in approaches to supporting people with disabilities and new technologies. Being a Support Worker can be challenging so with the right support for our employees our charity offers great opportunities and competitive rates of pay. If you are looking for a rewarding career that changes lives then New Directions can provide you with a the skills and knowledge that will give you that satisfaction.”
