Make a real difference to someone's life!
Are you the kind of person who thrives on making others feel valued? Are you a positive, honest and compassionate person who is good at understanding other people?
If this sounds like you and you would like the chance to make a real difference to other people's lives, then Ivydene at Voyage Care is the place for you to work. The work can be challenging but the rewards of supporting people to achieve their goals make every day meaningful.
We are looking for Support Workers to provide care and support for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs. At Ivydene our ethos is that the people we support do not live in our work place, we work in their home, and that is exactly what Ivydene is, a home from home. We support people to anything they like to do such as, trampolining, theatre trips, vising the gym, visiting the local community and much, much more.
The team at Ivydene have an enthusiastic, caring approach, and are always looking for something fun to do. We pride ourselves in delivering a high standard of care whilst encouraging independence for the people we support to ensure they live a fulfilling life. Ideally located in Portswood, Ivydene is easily accessible via car, train or bus.
We offer a great range of benefits including an employee assistance programme, which provides independent advice and support 24 hours a day. We also offer a pension scheme and a retail discount package with some great offers spanning from holiday discounts to gym memberships. Our employees can also make use of salary sacrifice schemes such as Childcare Vouchers and Cycle to Work.
