About our support worker team
Working in the Ategi team
Ategi support workers provide strengths-based person centred support tailored to each individual we work with. As a support worker, you will work with each person to meet their needs and support them to develop their skills, confidence and independence. You will help them to identify their strengths and skills, overcome challenges and work towards their goals.
Basic pay starts at £10.50 an hour, and with premiums available for qualified staff, flexible working and working with people's whose behaviours challenge this can go up to £11.49. There are lots of perks on top of our pay.
Who we support
The people we support have different strengths and abilities, and face different challenges. We train our support workers to work with people facing different challenges, as well as the mandatory training. This could be around particular mental health needs or physical health conditions such as epilepsy.
Our team include part-time and full-time staff, some work with many different people, others particularly with a few specific people.

Key support worker attributes
Our support workers are a diverse mix of people with different strengths, interests and backgrounds. What they have in common is key attributes that underpin the great support they provide and ensure that Ategi is the right fit for them.
Your personal values wont be exactly the same as Ategi's, but they should fit well with them.
Put the person at the centre of what you do - work with them to give them control, identify their strengths and goals, support and enable them, and treat them with respect and dignity.
Understand the importance of safeguarding and work within policies to promote safeguarding. Encourage positive risk-taking within the safeguarding context.
Experience or aptitude
Demonstrable experience of supporting people, paid or unpaid is desirable. However, with the right aptitude and values we can provide training on specific knowledge and skills.
