What matters to the people we support matters to us. It’s their life, their way.

We are looking for a kind and fun-loving person to join our amazing team in Lowestoft, supporting 7 people who live independently. You will be working in people’s homes, so it’s important you can connect, share interests and be interested.

You should be available to work 30 hours a week on a 2 week rolling rota and will include working every other weekend.

The rota will be week 1 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, then week 2 Monday, Saturday and Sunday
