Job Summary

Certitude is an adult social care provider, rated as outstanding by CQC for our Domiciliary Care support. We are proud of our history of supporting people with complex mental health needs and learning disabilities and support more than 1,500 people in a diverse range of services across London. We employ over 1,000 staff and are committed to their development. With Certitude, you have the opportunity to work with incredible people, develop your career and support others to have a good life.

If you are interested in a career that makes a difference, we are recruiting Life Enabler Support Workers to support adults with learning disabilities, to enable them to live a good life, achieving their own goals. You will work as part of a team, supporting people in line with their person-centred support plans, supporting them with all aspects of their daily life both at home and out and about in their community.

This is a new role which will ensure the people you support are achieving person centred outcomes, maintaining and increasing their independence and skills to enable them to be active in their communities. You will focus on active support, physical and emotional wellbeing, communication and understanding and achieving purpose. Support will flex with people as their needs and life choices change.

- Ability to use a range of technology – internet, emails, Microsoft Office, smart phones and iPads

We will trust you to:

- Build great relationships with the people you support and others who are important in their lives (families, friends, staff and external professionals)
- Ensure people are supported in everyday tasks in a respectful way, to meet their individual needs and preferences; by enabling them to do as much as possible for themselves and empower them by offering as much choice, control and involvement as possible – whether it is assistance to eat, wash, provide medication, enhance their mobility, communicate their needs, support with finances, getting in touch with friends, taking part in classes and being active members of their communities
- Be confident to adapt behaviour to individuals and situations
- Ensure individualised support helps people tackle challenges and achieve their goals

What’s in it for you:

- A competitive salary
- Pension salary sacrifice scheme
- A stimulating work environment full of opportunities to learn and develop
- An attractive package of 25 days’ annual leave, access to a 24-hour Employee Assistance counselling
- We will pay for your Enhanced DBS
- Eye care vouchers
- Travel season ticket loan
- Cycle to work Scheme

Our Values:

- Working Together
- Continuously Improving

- Dependable

All our posts are subject to an Enhanced DBS disclosure as well as a need for full employment history from time of leaving compulsory education and up to date employment references. We are committed to equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
