Support Worker – Learning Disabilities Supported Living

At Tyddyn Môn we have multiple opportunities available to join our compassionate team. Whilst experience is welcome, it is not essential as full training will be provided.

Would you thrive working in a specific community house setting, pursuing the principles of everyday living for vulnerable people? If so, then read on to uncover these rewarding opportunities where you’ll be supporting vulnerable adults to live a qualitative life in their own home, endorsing a person-centred approach, which at all times respects the person being supported.

In Menai Bridge, we have permanent contract opportunities available with full time hours (35+ hours per week) and part time hours (16-25 per week), and we also have roles for relief/cover work too. We operate on a 24/7 rota and as a team we cover day, evening, and weekend shifts, and sleep ins.

Our Organisation

Tyddyn Môn is a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity. We have been providing support for adults with a learning disability with a range of needs for over 30 years. We offer person centred care and support at seven supported living settings on Anglesey, where we create an environment that promotes independence and positive outcomes, where individuals are supported to shape their own lives. What we do makes a real difference.

  • A starting pay rate of £8.91 per hour with sleep-ins paid at the same rate
  • Double pay for Bank Holiday shifts worked
  • DBS and training paid for by the charity
  • Generous annual leave – 30 days per annum inclusive of public holidays (based on full time hours)
  • Enhanced sick pay after one years’ service, rising to 9 weeks at full pay and 2 weeks at half pay after 6 years’ service
