Job description

Are you a warm, highly motivated person with person-centred values who can empower and support people with a learning disability to transform their lives? Are you creative, proactive and willing to go the extra mile to enable people to achieve their aspirations?

We are recruiting Support Workers to join an established team of staff supporting people with a learning disability or autism to enjoy an excellent quality of life in a range of supported living and residential services across Bedford.

We offer an empowering model of support which enables people to lead fulfilling and valued lives, to participate in their local community, develop independent living skills and achieve their personal goals and desired outcomes. As well as providing direct care and support, you will have the opportunity to act as a Key Worker supporting people to achieve their dreams and goals.

This rewarding role will require flexibility across the week and your working time will involve working shifts which include evenings, weekends and bank holidays. A high level of motivation and personal commitment is required along with demonstrable skills in engaging service users in planning their support. You will also be expected to work professionally alongside Care Managers and health professionals and to communicate positively with families, carers and friends.

Although we value relevant experience of supporting people with a learning disability or autism you do not need to have prior experience if you can demonstrate a ‘can-do approach’, person-centred values, energy and commitment. You will need good verbal and written communication skills and the ability to develop good quality support plans. You will have a strong work ethic and duty of care and be able to contribute to a positive, team approach.

If you do not already have a relevant vocational qualification in health or social care we will support you to complete the Care Certificate and an accredited Health & Social Care Diploma. In return we will offer you good conditions of service, supportive management and prospects for future career progression. Applications from graduates in any discipline are welcomed. You must enjoy good health and be able to carry out all expected care and daily living tasks.

The services are located in Bedford town and neighbouring villages.

Closing Date: 28 April 2020
