Support Workers

Following an internal review of our rotas and commissioned hours we have a number of permanent flexible employment opportunities available. 

Supported Living vacancies

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

Weekend shifts  - working up to 15/16 hrs over a weekend with the option to pick up extra shifts

Late shifts  - part time and full time available with the option to pick up sleep in shifts

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.    

Relief/Bank working opportunities also available to work in the houses and also in our Day Service provision based in the ground of Thornage Hall. 

  What are the benefits:

  • Flexible working pattern
  • Salary band entry level £16,795 (8.21/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
  • Free Yoga classes
  • 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 5 minutes (by car) from Holt.
