Real Life Options’ expanding support staff join us from a variety of backgrounds and from all walks of life, bringing a wealth of experience, qualities and skills. Some individuals choose to work in health and social care from leaving school whilst others make it a career choice later in life. Whilst experience may be desirable for certain roles, we invest in first class training for individuals who are willing to learn and who have a positive approach and a can-do attitude.
Joining Real Life Options as a Support Team member, you’ll have regular contact with the people we support. Your role will be to ensure that people have access to facilities and new experiences, and are supported to live a life with choices and one that is free from harm. Support Team roles include Support Workers, Supported Living Leads, and Team Coordinators led by Service Managers and Heads of Operations. In addition, Support Team colleagues are assisted by operations focused administrative and quality assurance personnel.
