Due to the huge success and growth of Headway’s Lifestyle Services, we are looking to recruit exceptional people, to join our team of Support Workers to enable our brain injured clients to improve their independence at home and in the community leading to an improved quality of life.

You will need to be a positive, caring, and motivated individual, and have the drive to make a real difference to peoples’ lives, being able to use initiative and having a good sense of humour

We need you to be committed and flexible to suit our clients’ requirements which are 2x 2 hour sessions per day (11:00am – 1:00pm + 5:00pm – 7:00pm), live locally ideally (Erdington), keen to learn about brain injury, able to prompt/give assistance to clients with day to day living tasks (no personal care required) and support in the community and at activities as required.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to gain experience working with Acquired Brain Injured clients. The salary per hour is £7.85 at the moment; also we pay £0.83 annual leave payment for each hour worked. This can be quite a useful income for students on Health & Social Care based courses or parents looking for flexible hours.

We will pay for you to attend training on:

  • Brain Injury

  • The Care Certificate

  • Safer People Handling

  • Food Hygiene

  • Infection Control

  • Safeguarding of vulnerable adults

  • Equality & Diversity

  • Basic Health and Safety

We will require an enhanced DBS disclosure, expense of which will be met by Headway Birmingham & Solihull.
