Job description


Do you want to join an organisation that employs remarkable people to do a remarkable job?

Are you passionate about supporting others, especially the most disadvantaged and challenging?

Do you want to work for an organisation where 98% of employees say that they are proud of the work that they do?

We are looking for an enthusiastic, compassionate Support Worker who would thrive in a community based service where no two days are ever the same.

South Nott’s Moving Forward is a floating support service for people with mental health problems covering Gedling, Rushcliffe and Broxtowe districts, working in partnership with local Community Mental Health Teams.

This job might be for you if:

  • You are a great listener, you are empathetic and understand the needs of people struggling with their mental health, benefits, housing law, debt and health and independent living.

  • You are resilient. You bounce back from difficulties and can manage stressful situations in a calm and positive way.

  • You thrive working as part of a diverse team and are good at communicating with others.

  • You are committed to responding effectively, empowering people to find self-confidence and have respect for the individual.

  • You are able to understand and follow policies and procedures and have a strong awareness of professional boundaries.

    Ideally you should have a working knowledge of the support needs of people with mental health problems living independently in their own home, but being able to demonstrate transferrable skills and a commitment to continuous learning would be acceptable. Extensive training and induction will be provided to the right candidate.

    In this role you will provide specifically tailored support to help people to achieve their individual goals and assist them to review and learn from their progress and achievements.

    The Moving Forward service has a long and successful record of supporting people to achieve and make key, positive changes to their own lives. If you join our dynamic and motivated team, you would carry your own caseload and support your colleagues to excel at all times.

    The role requires flexible and creative effort from you that can aid the development of the people we support. A professional approach and commitment to support vulnerable beneficiaries of this service are a must. You would be expected to keep accurate and relevant support notes, demonstrate how to resolve problems, advocate and communicate at all levels with various community agencies.

Must have a current driving licence and access to a car in order to cover local county districts (mileage paid).

What we offer: Life Assurance, Pension (up to 4% matched by FHA), Enhanced Maternity, Paternity and Adoption Benefits, Additional Annual Leave Purchase Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, Learning programmes tailored to suit different roles and services, Health Cash Plan.
