Are you looking for a job where no two days will be the same, change someone’s life today and make a positive change to your own!

Our Service Users are at the heart of everything we do at Lifeway's. Your job as a Support Worker for individuals with Learning Disabilities is to ensure our Service Users lead valued and fulfilling lives, helping them to reach their potential and achieve to the best of their ability.

Being a Support Worker for individuals with Learning Disabilities with us means you may be helping our service users by supporting them to go to work, do personal tasks, do household jobs or enjoy their favourite hobby, through to more exciting tasks such as moving into their own home for the first time or planning a holiday.

Your role will be varied and no two days will be the same. Whether you’re new to supporting people or have years of experience, you will get the training and support you need to do your job really well, through our learning and development programme.

No experience is necessary, as we are looking for people with the right values and attitude and full training is given.

You will work together with people’s family, friends and the professionals who get involved in their lives.

Together you will support the person to enable them to live independently and achieve their ambitions.

As a Support Worker you will need to be flexible as shift work is required to include days, evenings, weekends.

A full driving licence is preferred for this post (but is not essential) due to the location of this service and because you may be required to drive company vehicles in order to accompany the people we support to various activities within the community. However, there is a good bus link between Lincoln and Sleaford and Scopwick and the bus stop is just outside the service for any non-drivers.

Lifeway's offer career development, local work, induction training, regular refresher training, supervision and employee recognition.

All applications will be subject to paid DBS checks and references - The DBS will be paid for by the company.

Our support workers are very important to us and are an essential part of our service.
