Hours: Full time, 37 hours per week (includes days, evenings, sleep-ins and some weekends)


Are you enthusiastic about delivering quality support to people with learning disabilities? Are you committed to ensuring everyone succeeds? We want to hear from you! 


An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead a small and skilled team of support workers at Centre 404’s Independent Living Service, Mildmay Avenue. Coordinating meaningful support and activities for 10 service users, who live in their own flats, a key focus is to engage individuals with their peers and the local community, helping to tackle social exclusion and loneliness. 


Working in partnership with a variety of professionals and agencies, you will keep our service users at the heart of decision making to empower them and take positive risks. In addition, you will have strong administrative and organisational skills and experience of supporting and motivating people with learning disabilities to achieve their goals. Experience of supporting people with additional mental health needs would be advantageous.  


We are looking for a caring and creative person to empower the people we support with making meaningful choices, accessing the community for rewarding activities, and building lasting relationships.


In return, you will have a chance to work with a positive and supportive team, opportunities for further staff development, regular support and supervision, an in-depth induction and ongoing training.  


How to apply: Please submit a CV along with a cover statement (either within the email itself or as an attachment) addressing the following: “Tell us more about why you are interested in this role and what you would bring to this post in terms of your knowledge, skills and experience”. Please ensure you refer to the person specification in your statement and explain how you meet the criteria.

We are dedicated to providing a meaningful and rewarding work environment, as well as offering a range of perks and benefits for our staff to enjoy.
