Job opportunities

Support workers

We are looking for kind, compassionate people to join our amazing team of support workers. You do not need any special skills – we will provide all the training you need. But you could make a real difference to the lives of people with complex disabilities.

Many people, including some of our staff, are having to self isolate due to the coronavirus, so it is vital we boost the number of support workers  in our team in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire.

Support workers are classed as key workers under the latest Government guidance, so their children automatically qualify for childcare while schools are closed due to the coronavirus.

Permanent support workers are paid £9.50 per hour; temporary bank support workers £9 per hour. Benefits include 27 days holiday, flexible shifts and a pension scheme.

Contact us at recruitment@epilepsysociety.org.uk or call 01494 601366 or 07936 360641.
