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.
