About Us

halow project is a vibrant, growing charity based in Guildford that provides opportunities and support for over 200 young adults with learning disabilities to access social activities, educational programmes and supported living accommodation in south-west Surrey and beyond.

All positions are subject to an enhanced DBS check and suitable references.

Please note, it is a criminal offence for people who are barred from working in Regulated Activity (Under the Safeguarding and Vulnerable Groups Act 2006) to apply for role that requires them to work unsupervised with that particular group (i.e. adults at risk, children or both).

The nature of this role means that you must be at least 18 years old and have the right to work in the UK.

Please note we are currently unable to provide visa sponsorship for this role.

Job requirements We are looking for people to support learners in an outreach capacity on our fantastic community based learning programme, Building Futures, around the local Guildford and Woking areas.

Working as a halow Learning Support Worker you will provide highly person-centred 1:1 support to young adults, helping to promote life skills, independence, social skills, leisure opportunities, educational provision and community access. To be considered for this role you will need excellent communication, organisation and problem solving skills. Due to the physical nature of the programme and community working, a good level of fitness and stamina is required. Professional or personal experience of learning disabilities, and experience within a health and social care and/or educational setting is desirable, but we also pride ourselves on a values-based approach and the main skill we are looking for is an ambition to help others.

If you are an individual who wants to make a difference to the lives of adults with learning disabilities living in Surrey then we want to hear from you!
