Support Worker recruitment agency listing

A support worker provides support of both a practical and emotional nature to individuals, couples or families who are undergoing problems with their relationships, health or emotional well-being.

The recruitment agencies listed on this page have extensive experience in matching suitable candidates to support worker vacancies.

Entering this profession does not require any particular qualifications. However, a GNVQ in health or social care would be beneficial, along with A-C grades in GCSE English and Maths. More important is the candidates attitude towards people in physical or emotional difficulty.

Empathy and a desire to help are core qualities for a successful support worker.

The role is also ideal for those with good listening and leadership skills, as well as those with an organised, flexible approach to work and excellent interpersonal communication skills.

Successful applicants must be willing and able to help clients with their day-to-day tasks, such as assisting with finances, shopping and days out. They should also have a keen interest in counselling those with drug and alcohol problems and attending meetings and courses with them if necessary.

Support worker jobs vary a great deal, as do starting salaries. A common starting figure is £17,000 a year, but this can rise to £26,500 with experience. Senior roles can command £33,500 or more. Working hours are normally 37-40 per week, and some shifts may be at unsociable hours.
