We have a new vacancy in the Colchester area for a Specialist Support Worker to work in a community / supported living setting, with adults with learning disabilities who may also have complex needs and/or needs associated with the autistic spectrum.

Specialist Support Worker | Colchester, Essex | £21,606 per annum (plus benefits)

RB Social Care are looking for Support Workers in the Colchester area, supporting adults with learning disabilities and associated needs, including sometimes behaviours that can challenge.


It is an enormously rewarding job - lots of fun but hard work too. No two days are the same, and there can be challenges to be met and overcome, but it can also be fun and, more importantly, you will be making a real and positive difference to someone’s life each and every day.


As a Support Worker you will provide support and care to individuals with a learning disability, mental health needs and/or a physical disability. You will support residents to live the lives that they want and to be part of the local community.

You will be an important and valued part of the team, providing excellent standards of support and care, working on a 1-to-1 basis with residents, helping them with all aspects of independent living and assisting with personal care.


Typical duties might include: -

  • Assisting clients with getting washed and dressed, preparing meals, prompting and assistance with taking medication

  • Light household tasks

  • Offering companionship and helping build clients confidence and independence


Applicants MUST have flexibility to work shift patterns, including evenings, alternate weekends, some bank holidays and sleep-ins.


Applicants MUST be a driver with own vehicle.


Whilst we want applications from people who have previous experience of working in a similar environment, full training will be provided. The most important element for applicants is that they should be caring, compassionate & empathetic.

Whether you are an experienced Support Worker or fancy a change in career and believe you have the empathy for this exciting and rewarding career, we want to hear from you.


For more information on this or any other available job opportunities, give us a call and we'll be happy to help.

We also offer a referral bonus scheme - if you know of anyone who might be interested, please feel free to pass along our details and, if successful, we will pay you a referral bonus of £150!* (Terms apply)
