We are looking for someone to join our friendly staff team to support our customers with their needs.

The apprentice will need to be confident, diverse, and keen to learn. We provide all training required for the post, this may be in Chichester, Bognor, Worthing or Horsham and the apprentice will need to make their own way there and back.

The post requires independent thinking, problem solving and risk assessing on a daily basis as some of our customers don’t have capacity.

Our customer base is between Felpham, Bognor, Barnham, Pagham and Chichester. Our customers have a wide range of skills and abilities so you may be supporting someone with working on their independence or supporting customers on the Austistic Spectrum that require consistency and strict approaches while carrying out everyday tasks.
 
The job includes personal care, administering medication, cleaning, cooking and general maintenance supporting the customers to adhere to their tenancy agreements. Some of our customers have verbal challenging behaviour, so the apprentice needs to be able to follow care plans even in extreme circumstances.

The apprentice needs to be confident in filling out paperwork in a factual way, they will also be required to shadow Health Care professional appointments.
