What good support means to me?
The people we support tell us what they want from their support workers and what good support means to them.
I've had more training in this job than I have had with any other job

My job is completely varied
Amanda - Team Leader
Plenty of training, supportive teams and lots of development opportunities
When you join us as a support worker, you'll have a comprehensive induction into Brandon. You don't necessarily need experience as we provide full training. You'll learn the fundamental skills and knowledge you need in your role. Your induction will include training and assessment for the nationally recognised Care Certificate.
Our training is designed to ensure you feel confident right from the start.
You'll also work 'shadow shifts' to observe an experienced colleague. You'll be assigned a mentor too, so there is always someone to offer help and advice.
We'll continue to support you to gain professional qualifications, take on additional responsibilities and develop your career.
