Senior Support Worker
What’s your idea of working in care? We’d love to share a glimpse of life at Salutem with you!
Firstly, let’s talk about the people we support. Mark is our Karaoke king, Matty can walk for miles any day of the week, and Leslie loves going to the beach.
Could you be the friend they need to help them live their best lives?
We’re Salutem and we are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and adults in England and Wales across our residential homes, schools and day centres.
Support Workers at Salutem support people like Mark, Matty and Leslie to overcome any personal challenges each day so they can achieve outstanding outcomes. Individuals in our Salutem family may have disabilities or require complex care, but that doesn’t stop them from having fun, laughing hard and loving life.
Croydon Community Services provides supported living services to disabled adults living at Blakes Court and Speakers Court in Croydon.
Croydon Community Services gives the people we support the opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and the chance to develop and practice independent living skills. Individual support is also provided.
We provide support at two locations within Croydon: Blake Court and Speakers Court.
Blake Court is situated in Waddon on the outskirts of Croydon. It has four apartments, with each having a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living area. Outside there are communal areas and gardens. All apartments are based on the ground floor and are adapted to the individual needs of the people we support.
Speakers Court is located on St James Road in Croydon and is a short distance from the town centre. It has five apartments, with each having their own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living area. Outside there are communal areas and gardens. All apartments are based on the ground floor and are adapted to the individual needs of the pepole we support.
Each day will be different, and the main focus of your role is to provide daily support to adults in our residential services. It’s definitely not a normal 9-5, you can workdays, nights, and flexible shifts too. Talking of 'dream’ jobs, some of our shifts are sleep-ins!
In regards to benefits, at Salutem, any day can be a payday. That’s right, you can withdraw up to 30% of your wages via Wagestream, so if you need some cash, we’ve got you covered.
As a keyworker in the Care sector, you’ll hold a valued role in society. You’ll qualify for discounts with a Blue Light card and we’re signed up to Perkbox which offers over 200 exclusive perks and discounts. If you qualify for a pension scheme and choose to opt in, we’ll support you to pay into this.
Inductions and training are a priority, and we’re committed to supporting you to find your feet when you join us. We’ll pay for any training you need to do your job. We also have an internal staff communications app, Blink, where everyone has a voice and can lean on each other for daily support, and celebrate success too.
For a more confidential chat you can access the Employee Support Helpline, to support you with any issues including financial advice, health and well-being and more.
We have a massive duty of care towards those we support who are often the most vulnerable in society, which is why our staff are encouraged to keep up to date with vaccines and focus on self-care too.
