Ten reasons to work for Beyond Limits

More about...

Corey can have a good but dark sense of humour so you shouldn’t be easily offended. Corey likes to be spoken to adult to adult and likes his team to be laid back at times but still motivated to support with his goals. Corey has recently returned to playing wheelchair rugby and attends the gym but also enjoys growing plants, listening to music, playing the guitar, cooking, and watching a variety of films and documentaries. Corey’s goals are to attend the local gym more regularly and to develop his skills on the guitar.

Corey requires the use of a wheelchair and may also need support with planning due to an acquired brain injury but Corey is generally capable.

Corey has a young daughter that he looks after often so you need to be willing to work with a young child and have a playful attitude without taking over.

Apart from keeping Corey at the centre of your role, you will also create rotas, update timesheets, and make sure paperwork is done to a high standard. There will be management hours to help with this. This is a role where you can joke around with both Corey and the team, develop yours and the team’s skills and help build a great team and future for Corey.

Ideally you will:

  • Have similar interests to Corey
  • Be self-motivated
  • Put Corey first within your role
  • Have good communication skills for Corey and the team
  • Have a good sense of humour and not be easily offended
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Have a non-judgemental attitude
  • Value the principles of inclusion
  • Be flexible with your shifts

A DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) Check will be requested in the event of the individual being offered a position with Beyond Limits, the cost of which will be to the employee, however, this will be returned after successful completion of probation period (6 months).
