Services Support Worker – Royal Association for Deaf People

Are you looking for a rewarding role where you can make a real difference to people’s lives? Services Support Workers in the Surrey area.

Permanent part time 16 or 22.5 hours per week. Salary – £20,436.00 (full time equivalent) or Casual (sessional) hours for those who like the flexibility.
Rate of pay – £10.48 per hour

If you would like to join TeamRAD – delivering invaluable one-to-one and group support to deaf people, in their first language, usually British Sign Language (BSL) or via specialist communication systems like Makaton, please get in touch! Our Independent Living team provides person centred support so that deaf and deaf/blind people (including those who have additional support needs, e.g. a learning disability or mental health challenge) can develop the skills needed to live independently.

We are committed to ensuring that everyone can live a safe, fulfilled and happy life. If you have a positive attitude, a flexible approach and would like to join our team – get in touch!

We pay the Real Living Wage, provide excellent training and development, prioritise colleague wellbeing and are keen to attract people who can work independently, but who also enjoy being part of a team that can support each other to achieve great outcomes for the people who we support. Permanent roles attract life assurance benefit and generous pension contributions.

The sessional opportunity is flexible work and colleagues can choose support sessions from those offered. Many sessional colleagues develop their skills and gain valuable experience before eventually becoming permanent (when vacancies arise). Sessional colleagues are not permanent employees. There is no guarantee of work and days/hours can vary depending on the needs of the charity.
Please include a video clip explaining a little about yourself and why you want to join TeamRAD (no more than 2 minutes).

If you would like to complete your supporting statement in BSL, please include a video clip with your application (this is not essential).
To apply for either of these roles you must have native fluency in BSL or be qualified to a minimum Level 2 and be a car owner/driver.
