We are looking to welcome a new Senior Support Worker into our busy and dynamic mental health recovery team. We work across all our Bradford services, ensuring positive mental health and housing related support in a personalised way, to build and maintain independence. The successful candidate will engage with service users and build trusting therapeutic relationships.
This Senior Support Worker role will be to support in the leadership of the team, to provide individualised person-centred support to people with support needs living in their own homes. You and your team will enable them to enjoy a fulfilling and valued life, participate in the community and develop their abilities as fully as possible.
You will have a warm, caring nature, and a commitment to making a positive difference to people’s lives. It is expected that you will work flexibly, including evenings and weekends, to meet the needs of the service.
The role is varied. For example: One day you could be helping a service user to complete a housing benefit form or offer practical support around a household task. The next day you could be assisting someone to access a day service or set up a direct debit to pay their utility bills. You will receive extensive training and excellent peer support.
Our Bradford Re-enablement and Recovery Support Service provide contact care to people with a range of mental health needs as directed by their personal support plans. This will include visiting clients in their own homes or in other mental health settings as part of a structured package of support.
Our Enablement Service is a city-wide service which offers domiciliary CQC registered support and re-enablement for adults and older adults. Our service users may be experiencing fluctuating mental health, memory problems, dementia, learning disabilities or physical health issues. The service operates throughout Bradford and the surrounding areas, including Keighley, Bingley and Shipley.
We require warm, positive individuals to promote our person-centred ethos and work in close partnership with families and other agencies. You must be compassionate and able to provide both respectful personal care and personalised support. The Service is rated as ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ for caring.
If you have excellent interpersonal skills and if you are supportive, proactive, responsible, good at motivating people and an excellent listener then we would like to hear from you.
Experience of management in the care and support sector is preferred. Good written communication is also important. We appreciate flexibility from all our staff, therefore we also offer flexible working hours. It is a large team and we are looking for a diverse range of skills.
