Northampton Place Slough (Anchor Hanover)
Hours: 36 (we are also considering part time applicants, so please do not hesitate to apply if you are seeking part time working hours)
About the role
As a Support Assistant you will help older people to live independently in the community, actively networking with other agencies to support a person-centred approach and service.
You will join a dedicated team, providing a range of housing-related support services, including:
- Helping residents to live independently and visiting them to assess and meet their support needs
- Promoting social activities on the estate and in the wider community
- Working closely with the statutory and voluntary sectors to provide a seamless service and liaise with residents’ relatives
As Support Assistant you will need to have a caring, supportive nature and be a superb communicator. You will be highly organised and comfortable planning your own work and be familiar with the needs of older people. Previous experience in a similar role would be an advantage but is not essential.
We need people who share our values, people who are friendly, customer focused, calm and have the ability to work with a wide range of people. Being computer literate is also essential.
Anchor Hanover is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We are proud to have an LGBT+ resident group, and also BAME, LGBT+ and Disabled colleague networks. These work closely with the organisation to celebrate diversity, address concerns, review policy and practice and empower their members. We recruit, train and promote without discrimination on the basis of race, religion, colour, sex or gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age or other protected status. One of our values is ‘respect’, therefore we do not accept harassment or discrimination from any colleague, resident or third party.
Our housing leasehold and rented schemes are about providing older people with independence and security within a happy community. Residents look to us to provide them with a safe, well-maintained home and take the stress out of everyday life.
As England’s largest not-for-profit provider of care and housing for older people, we’re able to negotiate great deals and benefits for our people. Here are just a few of the things you’ll get when you work with Anchor.
