In the current crisis, the Adult Social Care service delivered by WSCC is experiencing considerable staffing shortages. We are looking to recruit Support Workers to work with our most vulnerable adults, those with learning disabilities living in residential homes. Details of the sort of work involved can be found in the advert.

If you are aware of any businesses, particularly those in the retail or hospitality sectors, that have had to make staff redundant, we would be very grateful if you could pass on the following advert, or communicate the job opportunity through social media.

Many thanks for any help you can offer.

Are you currently looking for full or part time work? Want to help out the local community during these challenging times?

West Sussex County Council are currently recruiting Support Workers to help the most vulnerable people in the county.

As a Support Worker you will work as part of a multi-faceted team based within a residential setting, providing active support (i.e. support that encourages individuals to do as much for themselves as possible) and enabling people in all aspects of their personal and physical care in a person centred way, maintaining their dignity, privacy and independence.

This may include assisting customers with their personal care, showering, assisting with eating and drinking, health related tasks, dealing with emergencies, assisting with mobility requirements and using related equipment, etc. encouraging people to achieve their outcome-based care objectives.

Full training will be provided and we welcome applications from all sectors and experience levels.
