We are recruiting support workers to assist our client following an acquired brain injury which he sustained in a car accident a number of years ago. The salary for the role is up to £14 per hour, depending on experience. Are you who we are looking for? Here is a message from him:

“Hi, I am 21 years old, and looking for team members who are fun, active and enjoy doing your job. You must be animal friendly and happy to support me in getting out and about, and on with my life. I’m passionate about football and support Newcastle United but I won’t be offended if you don’t. I am looking for support workers who can work together in a team to make sure I am well looked after. I am moving into my own home soon so will need guidance and support to help me with this transition.  If you are up for the challenge and interested in joining me on my journey please apply and tell me what you can bring to my life!”

 The salary for this role is £14/hr.


You will support our client with social and leisure activities and rehabilitation activities.
