About St David’s House and its Support Workers
St David’s House is a specialist residential centre (rated “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission in 2020) that is home to up to 20 young adults aged 21 to 31. We are looking for dedicated and caring support workers to join our friendly team.
We provide “exceptionally safe care” (CQC 2020) whilst challenging our young people to follow their dreams, pursue their interests and develop skills. All our residents have a degree of visual impairment and other complex needs, but our staff focus on supporting and empowering them to maintain as much independence as possible.
As a Support Worker here you’ll be joining a passionate and caring team who will support you throughout your time here.
At St David’s House we find that the rigid daily structures and strict routine of other care homes don’t really work here, so our staff get to spend quality time with the young people they support.
Pay, shifts and benefits for Support Workers
We offer all Support Workers generous starting salary of £18,816, rising to £19,846 once you’ve completed all your in-house training. We will also support and pay for you to achieve a recognised Level 3 qualification in Health and Social Care if you don’t already have one.
Benefits for Support Workers include 6 weeks of holiday for full time staff, pension scheme, life insurance, free eye appointments, time off for medical appointments and so much more.
All our daytime staff work on a three week ‘rolling rota’. There are always two days off together each week and no night shifts. At weekends you either work the Saturday or the Sunday or have both days off (so no more spending every hour of the weekend at work).
