Job description

Blue Pits Housing Action are pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for the following post(s):


  • Salary £21,320 per annum (WTE) for 40 hours per week
  • Start date 01.03.2022  (negotiable)
  • Internal and external applicants considered

As a full/part time support worker, you will assist in the delivery of 1:1 and group support which works toward achieving positive outcomes for our tenants

You will be responsive, reliable, enthusiastic, self-motivated and committed to working with vulnerable adults with complex needs.

An NVQ Level 3 in Health & Social Care (or equivalent)
and / or experience in a relevant field are essential.

The role is subject to a continuous contract of employment

The role of a support worker is highly demanding and you will be working to address complex needs and challenging behaviour by providing assertive, consistent and enabling support to people with complex mental health problems, Autistic Spectrum Conditions, learning disabilities and substance misuse issues.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills, and a positive and flexible approach to working. **There is an expectation that full time staff will also work evenings and weekends **
You will also have the ability to ensure that the rights of the people we support are always protected and respected.

If you have the ability to work with vulnerable adults and their families, if you have an understanding of the issues they face, and if you have the ability to work assertively and respectfully to enable our tenants to ‘enjoy and achieve’,
this could be a great opportunity!

Please apply in writing, in letter format, to Lynn Collins, the Service Manager, stating why you feel you have the necessary skills and experience to carry out this demanding role. 
Applicants not currently employed by the organisation must also complete an application form.

**Please do not apply if you are unable to work evenings and weekends.**

Typed or handwritten applications will be accepted.  Please state which position you are applying for i.e. full time/part time/weekend only

Closing Date for applications: Friday 11th February 2022 at 5.00 pm

Blue Pits Housing Action is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  You will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check and comply with Safeguarding Adults & Children policies and practices and to provide at least two satisfactory references.

Blue Pits Housing Action is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible internal candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.

Blue Pits Housing Action is a signatory to the Mindful Employer Charter.  As an employer we aim to show a positive and enabling attitude to employees and job applicants with mental health issues.  Applicants who have experienced mental health issues will not be discriminated against and disclosure of a mental health problem enables employees and Blue Pits Housing Action to assess and provide the right level of support or adjustment.

Under Section 3 of the Health & Social Care Act (2008) we will require and request references from all previous employment that involved working with Adults and Children.
