About the role

As a Waking Night Support Worker at Hft you'll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible.  In these roles, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives, creating flexible services that meet people's needs and always looking for the best way of doing things. 

Waking Night Support Workers are required to remain awake throughout the night to support individuals as required. You could be supporting someone with personal care, helping someone with their medication or just chatting and keeping them company if they are unable to sleep.

You'll go to work knowing that you're making a positive difference to someone's life. And you'll be working in a team of skilled, dedicated colleagues who'll support you all the way.

We provide 24/7 support to some people, so this role would suit you if you like the idea of working shifts and hours that include some weekends and Bank Holidays. You may also get the opportunity to accompany the people we support on holidays and attend training courses and other activities.

About you

You will ideally have experience in care work and supporting people with complex needs, training in epilepsy and the administration of medication would be a distinct advantage.


What we offer

We offer a range of benefits and career development opportunities. We’ll give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support along the way. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation we are committed to investing in our teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible.


Join us and help us change lives.
