Job vacancies: Support Workers Adults.

Birtenshaw is a dynamic and expanding charity; we require support workers for our Adult Care Services.  We are looking for dedicated, self-motivated and caring candidates to deliver high quality care to our young adults. Successful candidates should demonstrate a level professionalism when working with other agencies.

Birtenshaw team members Graham Zirfas and John Akopodiete were invited to an event hosted by Wirral local Authority called “Listen to me”.

During the event Graham and John received certificates in recognition of their dedication and hard work in supporting young people from the Wirral, for whom they care for.

They were nominated by their teams and the families of two young people, who stated they would like to nominate them,

“For their continued support and understanding of S and the relationship that they have built with the family” and for “Listening to B’s view and being very supportive of him”.

The event was to celebrate that adults were listening to children and supporting them to meet their needs and reach their goals.

Well done to Graham and John.
