At Symbol we understand that everyone has different needs, and that disability affects people in very different ways; you’ll therefore provide tailored day-to-day support. Each day is often very different depending on whom you’re working with; your day could include offering support with household tasks, personal care or finances. You might also be supporting people to become more involved in their local community and access employment and education opportunities, if that’s what they want to do.

It’s a job that can be challenging at times, but this is balanced by the unrivalled sense of long-term satisfaction it also gives. It’s an opportunity to be creative and feel inspired, both by your colleagues and the people you support. It’s a career that you can feel proud of.
