We presently have vacancies for enthusiastic Co-workers whom are willing to join our vibrant team and life-share in one of our households. We would expect at least a one year commitment starting from August each year.
As a member of our community, you will live in one of our houses and play a full and active part in the life of our community.
As a Co-worker your main task will be to support and befriend adults with a disability and help them access a wide range of leisure and work activities. Some residents will need support with their day-to -day needs & enable them to lead an active and integrated life.
The setting at Jerpoint is rural with close proximity to the local town of Thomastown. The community is based in a local neighbourhood amongst extensive vegetable gardens, a small farm with craft and food workshops. There is a close link with the local community and activities are availed of around Thomastown and Kilkenny.
You will receive full induction and necessary training to fulfil your responsibilities in a competent manner.
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience something different for empathetic, caring and motivated individuals, with an interest in social care. This experience may be a little challenging at times but it is also a lot of fun and very rewarding.
Please feel free to get in touch to explore more about the role of a co-worker and the ethos of our community. We are very happy to answer any questions you may have.
We look forward to hearing from you.
