Support Workers for Diane

Do you want to make a difference to someone’s life and do something rewarding?

Beyond Limits are committed to providing opportunities and choices by offering an individual, person-centred service and by maximising the use of existing community facilities and natural supports. 

We are recruiting support workers to work within a team for Diane. Diane is a young, intelligent woman with a zest for life. Diane is a very sociable person. Diane enjoys day trips, car boots and small trips away. Diane has mental health needs and her team will have to be flexible but consistent, calm and confident when she is testing their commitment to her. We provide personalised training within our induction. NVQ would be an advantage but not essential as we can develop your skills to work towards this. It is beneficial if you are a car driver but not essential.

We are looking to recruit support workers to join an already motivated and dedicated team. You will support Diane in her own home to build on her independence, provide emotional support and help explore fresh opportunities for her to gain employment and develop new friendships of similar interests.

  • Enjoy having fun
  • Have good communication skills
  • Be organised
  • Be a positive thinker
  • Be an active listener
  • Be willing to try new things
  • Be opened minded
  • Be able to do shift work including weekends, evenings and some bank holidays
  • Be flexible
