The world is full of people who devote their lives to caring for a loved one, but who is caring for them? At Milestones Trust we understand that carers need support, too. 

Come and join us and help support these unsung heroes to have a well-deserved break, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is well looked after.

Fairburn is a short break respite service, providing nursing care and support to people with learning and physical disability. We offer planned and emergency person centred respite for varying lengths of time, ensuring continuity of care and routine away from home.  


Working for us can be incredibly rewarding and can offer many benefits. The home offers a changing and diverse environment, where every day is different and provides new experiences and motivations.

We are looking for a Support Worker who is keen to join our professional and enjoyable staff team.


As a Support Worker, you will provide service users with the agreed necessary support to maximise their independence and help them develop and maintain relationships as well as social and life skills


You will support them to be involved in regular activities, including arts and crafts, puzzles, cooking and entertainment, as well as trips and activities outside the home. To be a driver would be an advantage as we have a mini bus, allowing staff to plan ad-hoc trips, such as eating out and visits to garden centres and the cinema.


The successful Support Worker will have strong communication skills with the ability to communicate effectively with team members, service users and their families, and  have a caring manner and a tolerant nature.


Experience within the sector is not essential as we will provide you with training required to carry out your duties. 

In return we offer excellent, high quality learning opportunities, including the opportunity to undertake a level 3 or 5 Diploma in Health and Social Care. Alongside this, other benefits include: 


  • 30 days Annual Leave Entitlement
  • Access to an Employee Discount Platform from Day 1, with discounts and cash back for hundreds of retailers.
  • Refer a Friend Scheme earning you up to £750
  • Company Pension
