Bede House: Learning Disabilities Support Workers vacancies

We are growing! Come and join us.

We are looking for support workers to join our Learning Disabilities team. Support workers are part of a flexible team working with adults who have learning disabilities, who use the Bede Centre in Bermondsey SE16.

We work in a person-centred way to enable people with learning disabilities to become as independent as possible, to make their own choices and to be fully part of the community.  We do this by supporting them to develop and maintain skills, try new opportunities, make and maintain friendships and spend their time in ways valued by them and the community. We work in partnership with other local charities, to provide as many social, volunteering and work opportunities as we can to the people that come to Bede.

We are looking to people that can work a variety of shifts, including full-time, part-time or flexible sessional cover. Our core service runs Monday-Friday, 9:30am-3:30pm, and we also support other projects and social clubs in the late afternoons. You can see more information about the service at https://bedehouse.org.uk/programmes/learning-disabilities/.

Please visit https://bedehouse.org.uk/staff-vacancies/ for details on how to apply, or contact Gwen Green (020 7237 3881 or by email at gwengreen@bedehouse.org.

You do not have to have previous experience of this type of work to do it well, but we are looking for people that are able to do the job as outlined, and who share Bede’s person-centred approach and values. We will provide full training and support to the right candidates.

At the moment men are underrepresented in our team, and we would therefore particularly welcome male applicants.

Deadline for applications is midnight, Monday 10th April.

Interviews will be held on Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th April.

Bede works with children and adults at risk of harm, and we have Safer Recruitment policies and procedures in place to ensure that they are protected from abuse. These roles are subject to an enhanced DBS with a possible barred list check.
