Job description

Support Worker
Salary: A competitive rate of up to £12.92 per hour
Hours: Flexible working hours available
Here is your opportunity to start a career in rehabilitation support work. You do not need experience in care or support roles – we provide a full induction and specialist training and coaching.
Working in brain injury rehabilitation is different to other kinds of support work. You’re there to encourage and guide individuals, helping them gain the skills and confidence to live independently.
You will share the journey with these inspiring people as they overcome hurdles, achieve milestones, and reach the goals they’ve set. Many of the people we support only stay for three months before they are ready to move on. You can make a massive difference in that time.
We have full and part-time roles on offer.
Why join us?
The Disabilities Trust is a charity that aims to improve the lives of people with brain injuries in the UK. Our assessment centres, rehabilitation units and hospitals use expert neurorehabilitation to support people to regain the skills they have lost. We treat people with a range of brain injuries – sustained through trauma, illness, substance abuse and more – to recover and meet their personal goals. Our employees are incredibly passionate about the jobs they do – you’ll find a strong team spirit across our services and amazing colleagues who always pull together and look out for each other.
The Role
Located in Aylesbury, Kent House is a specialist residential centre providing continuing rehabilitation and specialist care and support for people with acquired brain injury (ABI). It forms part of the nationwide network of rehabilitation support services provided by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).
We will train you to provide personalised support to our adult residents. You will follow individual support plans to meet the needs and aspirations of each person. The focus is developing independent living skills: personal hygiene, meal preparation, exercise, leisure activities, socialising – the daily routine of regular life.
It is a really varied job, with all kinds of different activities to organise and participate in – both at Kent House and in the local Aylesbury community: art, crafts, music, sports, gardening, shopping, swimming, and countless others.
You’ll get huge job satisfaction from seeing the people you are supporting do more for themselves and live the life they want to live. If you’re interested in building a career, we’re here to support you all the way on your own journey.
About you
We’re not looking for any kind of specific experience. It is your personality and values that will make you a good fit for the role and our Charity. We can train and develop you to become a great rehabilitation support worker if you:
  • have genuine empathy for our residents, with the positivity, patience, and resilience to support them through the difficult times of their rehabilitation
  • enjoy teamwork and take pride in getting a job done well alongside your colleagues
  • have excellent face to face communication skills and a good standard of literacy
  • have good time management skills and the ability to prioritise your own workload.
You can look forward to excellent benefits, including handy discounts on many brands and services.
  • A competitive rate of Up to £12.92 per hour
  • 33 days annual leave inclusive of bank holidays
  • Excellent training and support
  • Group life assurance
  • Eye voucher scheme
  • Free parking
  • Nationwide employee staff discounts incl. eating out and shopping
  • Blue Light Card: provides those in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and armed forces with discounts online and in-store
We also put a big focus on employee wellbeing and support. It matters to us that you feel at your best. Career development is a priority. We will ensure you get all the training and learning opportunities you need to achieve your goals.
