Job description

Are you a warm, highly motivated person with person-centred values who can empower and support people with a learning disability to transform their lives?  Are you creative, proactive and willing to go the extra mile to enable people to achieve their aspirations?

We are recruiting Support Workers to support tenants with learning disabilities or autism to enjoy an excellent quality of life in a range of supported living services in the Denton area.  You will work in collaboration with the service user, their family and wider support network to maximise their health and wellbeing and to promote their independence and community connections.

Our supported living services enable people to lead fulfilling and valued lives, maintain their tenancies, participate in their local community, develop independent living skills and achieve their desired outcomes.  As well as providing direct care and support, you will have the opportunity to act as a Key Worker supporting people to achieve their dreams and goals.

This rewarding role will require flexibility across the week and your working time will involve working shifts which include evenings, weekends and bank holidays. A high level of motivation and personal commitment is required along with demonstrable skills in engaging service users in their own support. You will also be expected to work professionally alongside Care Managers and health professionals and to communicate positively with the families of service users.

We value relevant experience of supporting people with a learning disability or autism. However, you do not need to have prior experience if you can demonstrate a ‘can-do approach’, person-centred values, energy and commitment. You will need good verbal and written communication skills and the ability to develop good quality support plans. You will have a strong work ethic and duty of care and be able to contribute to a positive, team approach.

If you do not already have a relevant vocational qualification in health or social care we will support you to complete the Care Certificate and an accredited Health & Social Care Diploma. In return we will offer you good conditions of service, supportive management and prospects for future career progression. Applications from graduates in any discipline are welcomed as are applications from people seeking a worthwhile career change. You must enjoy good health and be able to carry out all expected care and daily living tasks.

The services are located across Denton and are easily accessible by public transport.

The services are currently offering full time contracts of 37.5 hours per week or part-time contracts, subject to a minimum of 15 hours per week.
