Part Time Community Outreach Worker Job Description and Person Specification

Male* Community Outreach Worker (Full Time, 37 hours per week)

Full Time Community Outreach Worker Job Description and Person Specification

*Please note that these positions are advertised as female and male only as it is a genuine requirement for the role. It would be advantageous for the full time male Community Outreach Worker to hold a full driving licence and be willing to drive our minibus on a regular basis.

Working in small groups and on a one to one basis, we will rely on you to help make sure that people with learning disabilities have the same rights, opportunities and quality of life as everyone else. If you have the drive, determination and commitment to make this happen, this could be the job for you. Various shifts will be required, including some evenings / weekends. You will need to be flexible in a fast moving environment. No two days will be the same. We pride ourselves in the flexible support we provide for people. We expect the same from you so that we can continue to make a positive difference for the many people who rely on our support.

If you have a level 2 qualification in Care, or something similar, great. If not, you will be given appropriate training. Most importantly, we need you to want to work with people who need a little support in order to lead fulfilling lives and we will want you to demonstrate this in your application. If you already have experience of working with children and / or adults with learning disabilities / other needs then that’s also great, we really want to hear from you. Some people forget about experience they have with family / friends and the skills they have developed as a result. Having a driving licence would also be a distinct advantage.
