Nurturing Independence

Buddies are fun, friendly and compassionate people with a genuine desire to support and encourage young people with learning disabilities.  Our staff love seeing how their support enables each young person to progress and they feel a real sense of purpose working at halow.


Working as a Senior Buddy at halow you will provide highly person-centred 1:1 support, promoting life skills, independence, social skills, leisure opportunities and community access, whilst providing care in the young person’s own supported living accommodation.  At the same time, you will be trained and supported to take your next steps into management and higher levels of responsibility.


Full time roles are 37½ hours per week (starting at £10.50/hour*) on a rolling shift pattern (daytime/evening/weekend) plus 2 overnight shifts (sleep-ins) per week (£50 each).  Slightly reduced hour roles are also available, with salary/leave pro-rated.   * The hourly rate rises after successfully completing probation (£10.76/hour) and again when line managing 3 Buddies (£11.02/hour).


We are seeking enthusiastic and caring candidates to be part of our growing and outward looking team that is passionate about growing halow over the next 2 years and beyond.
