Community Support Workers

We have flexible work available in the Exeter, Mid Devon and South Devon areas

This rewarding role will involve enabling people with acquired brain injuries to overcome their difficulties and pursue their goals. Every client is different and no two days will be the same, but activities may include anything from supporting people to prepare meals, helping out in the garden or supporting someone to attend exercise classes, to enabling someone to do the weekly food shop or assisting them to look for employment.

Working arrangements are flexible but some evening and weekend work will be required. Successful applicants will have a full driving license and access to a car. We are offering a competitive salary for this post with paid travel time and expenses.

An NVQ2 in care is desirable, but not essential. People from all backgrounds are welcomed and a full training programme is provided. Applicants need to be willing to carry out personal care where required. Applications should be submitted to eva@headwaydevon.org.uk.
