Are you a night owl?

We are looking to recruit a positive and caring Waking-night Support Worker to join our friendly and welcoming team in Omagh on a permanent basis.

The people we support have various needs and as a Support Worker you will need to ensure that their well-being is your priority. We ask that you provide full personal care overnight as and when required for a total of 3-4 nights per week. Each waking night shift is 10.5 hours long and you will be working on a rota basis: 10:30pm – 9am the following morning. 

The people we support thoroughly enjoy their bedtime routine which normally includes talking, finishing up household tasks, watching the latest films before lastly settling down into bed. When they are fast asleep you will be completing light domesticated duties such as ironing, cleaning, checking finances and cashing up alongside regular checking and supporting on any needs that are raised during the night. 

This is a perfect opportunity if you are looking for a caring and friendly environment to work in. The best thing is anyone can do it, as long as you have a positive mind-set and are attentive at all times, then we would love to hear from you! Please note, you will be lone-working throughout the night. In return for your hard work we will support you through our award winning training to help you progress in your career with us!
