About our team
Youâll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements. To us were not just a team weâre a âwork familyâ. Our manager is Kieran, who has worked for Home Group for many years. When Kieran is not at work he can normally be found socialising with friends, spending time in Wales, or expecting Wales to win in the rugby. He loves working with and supporting people to be their best, and supporting them in their journey through Home Group. There are a huge 19 of us in the team and we donât just love to support our customers, weâre there for each other too! Donât panic, we donât expect you to learn everyoneâs names straight away, and you will have a buddy from your first day. One of your new colleagues will be Rafiya whoâs been here for about a year. Sheâs really proactive and supportive, and will be sure to take you under her wing.
We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you! Our service operates Monday to Friday from 8am until 8pm but the hours are flexible within this â we work collaboratively with the carers so you will have autonomy to manage your diary.
Looking for a more flexible working pattern? You can also join us on a flexible basis by being part of our bank. You can work hours that fit around your current commitments or even pick up some additional shifts to your main role to earn some extra cash and get paid on a weekly basis.
Youâre passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. Youâll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds.
Youâll help change our customerâs lives (and our services) for the better by undertaking risk assessments, support planning, goal setting and regular reviews. Youâll create bespoke and personalised support plans with and for your customers. Each plan will look to meet our customerâs individual needs and aspirations, making sure they meet safeguarding and confidentiality requirements. Youâll also have responsibility for coordinating our volunteers and apprentices, and working collaboratively with external agencies and GPs, to assess and engage support for our customers.
We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together weâll make a difference!
To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!) Youâll be given the latest IT kit, which could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online integrated IT system which means that you donât have to be in the office as you can complete support plans on the go.
It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however itâs your âcan doâ positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!
As this is a community based role, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Donât worry, weâll pay you expenses to cover this use!
If you are successful, we need you to have an Enhanced Disclosure Check through the Disclosure and Barring Service which weâll pay for.
Whatâs in it for you?
Thereâs lots! Including: competitive salaries, 25 days paid holiday a year rising by 1 day per year up to 30 days, with the ability to purchase an extra 5 days, a contributory occupational money-purchase pension scheme with life assurance and long term disability insurance, salary sacrifice schemes including cycle, car, technology and heavily discounted AA membership, gyms and savings on high street stores, holidays and restaurants amongst many others.
