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.

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.
