Peterborough Pathways Support Worker - Relief Workers Wanted!
Casual / Seasonal / Bank
Advert Start Date:
Advert End Date:
Peterborough - Community Based
Peterborough Pathways supports families to do things that many of us take for granted – a trip to the town, a visit to a play park, going swimming, or maybe just being a friend.
‘Support Worker’ isn’t up there with ‘Astronaut’ or ‘Racing Driver’. But we thought ‘Transforming the Life of a Child with Disabilities’ was a bit long.
One of our team told us:
“Young people with learning disabilities need to be given opportunities”
“It can be difficult to turn off at the end of the day when you are so involved with a young person, it’s not like leaving the office and turning off your computer. But, although challenging, the role of Support Worker is a truly rewarding role and no two days are ever the same. I truly love my job”
Flexible availability is essential for this role as it will include early mornings, evenings, weekends, school holidays and split shifts.
Are you ready to take on the challenge?
