Headway Devon are looking for a compassionate and caring person to join our Community Support Team. This is a rewarding role, which involves enabling people to live independently and achieve their goals.

We offer a competitive salary and flexible working hours. An NVQ2 in care is desirable, but not essential as full training is provided. People from all backgrounds are welcomed.

What Makes Working for Headway Devon so Special?

Whatever role you are in, you will be part of a team making a real change to people living with Acquired Brain Injuries. Community Support work can be very varied, with activities ranging from assisting someone to plan and cook healthy meals, through to special day trips out around the region.

At Headway Devon we encourage and support all our staff to be individuals, and to use their talents and experience to enable our clients to live independently and achieve their goals.

We offer a more balanced working day than many other sectors, providing sufficient time for staff to spend with clients meeting their needs.  This means no visits are less than 1hr in duration, and reasonable travelling time is scheduled between appointments for staff. This not only helps us to provide a quality service in which our client’s needs are met, but also ensures our staff are able to do their jobs without feeling rushed or pressured.

What We Offer

Whether you want to work part-time or full-time, we can offer a wide range of flexible hours and working arrangements.  We offer a competitive salary of up to £9.44 per hour with paid travel time
