Thornage Hall provides supported living accommodation in 5 houses located in the beautiful surroundings of the Thornage Hall estate.

We run a biodynamic farm which provides food for those living in our houses, as well as sales to local organic outlets. We have built on the success of the farm and have converted farm buildings into studios for our Day Services offering a range of craft, IT and artistic activity - greatly enriching the lives of those people with learning disabilities who have a thirst to develop new skills within a working environment.

Full-time - 37.5 hours per week, including evenings and weekends.

These vacancies will be based in any of our 5 supported living services and will involve working with all tenants who live in our community.  Ideally you will have experience of working with vulnerable adults supporting them to live the life they choose, creating a safe, harmonious and caring environment that fosters the physical and emotional wellbeing of all our tenants and the staff, co-workers who support them.  

However, you don’t need to have worked in supported living before to be a good support worker.  If you are caring, supportive and want to work in a job that is genuinely rewarding, then the Thornage Hall team are keen to hear from you. 

This is a varied role where you will not only support the tenants to meet their health needs, to maintain their tenancy (cleaning and managing finances) but you will also be able to support the tenants to develop their cooking skills by encouraging healthy eating options and supporting to plan and prepare meals.    

  What are the benefits:

  • Flexible working pattern
  • Salary band entry level £17,591 (9.02/hr) with increments awarded on completion of probation and in house training
  • 25 days holiday + 8 bank holidays for full time staff
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme to support you with any personal or work related issues
  • Funded and continuous support in gaining professional qualifications
  • Discounted bio-dynamic fruit and vegetable boxes together with discounted Red Poll meat packs
  • The opportunity to work in a 70 acre bio-dynamic land community in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside

Successful applicants must undergo a DBS check and hold a full driving licence.
