We have full-time and part-time opportunities in Alvaston, Derby. Shifts include weekdays, weekends, evenings and night support.

About the role

We welcome people from all walks of life. You don't need any specific social care qualifications or experience.

• Cooking and cleaning

• Personal care

• Paying bills/managing household finances

• Going to health appointments and taking medicine

• Going shopping

• Going on day trips

• Fun activities such as sports, horse riding, gardening or bowling

• Applying for jobs or going to work/volunteering

• Using the internet and social media

Who we are

United Response is a leading national charity providing support to young people and adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs. We believe in championing the right of disabled people to live, work, socialise and participate in the community, free of discrimination and unnecessary boundaries.

What we offer

• 20 days' paid holiday, increasing after 3 and 5 years (plus 8 bank holidays)

• Benefits including pension contribution, childcare vouchers and season ticket loan

• Discounts from over 3,500 retailers

• Fully paid training and access to nationally recognised qualifications
