Working with adults with learning disabilities


Recruiting now!

We are looking for full and part-time Support Workers and Senior Support Workers to join our friendly team in Crowborough, supporting adults with learning disabilities.

Both roles provide practical support including:

  • assistance with leisure activities like cooking or gardening
  • help with personal care
  • teaching new skills.

Locations

The roles are based at two new learning disability services in Crowborough: Hookstead and The Ferns.

Hookstead day centre is open 9 to 5pm, four days a week. The Ferns provides 24/7 accommodation and support, so a wider range of hours are available, including weekends.

We offer opportunities for development and career progression, plus all the training you need to create a successful career in our learning disability service. If you have a can-do attitude, enjoy working with people and want to make a difference to someone’s life, we would love to hear from you.

Want to know more?

For more information or an informal chat about the roles and hours available, please call Nicola Spencer on 01323 464470 or email LDDPS enquiries.

Or call the Hookstead day centre on 01273 336730 and speak to Melise Butcher or Gemma Wanstall.

Support workers in the Relief Team

We also have support workers who are part of our highly-motivated team of Relief Staff. You have control over when you work, so this arrangement often suits people who want to get a foot in the door, have other family commitments or maybe studying. Some of the work is pre-planned and some may be last minute. For an information pack, email the Relief team.
