£27,270 - £29,252 PER ANNUM



Are you looking for a new challenge, or would you like to take the next step in your care career? We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced care professional to join our friendly Supported Living team. In this role, you will;

lead a team of carers to ensure the care we provide is to the highest standard and that education, leisure and work opportunities are incorporated into our learner’s programmes
provide support to the Supported Living Manager, deputising in their absence
work in partnership with our onsite College to support our learners to achieve the outcomes specified in their EHCP.

As part of this role you will also be required to carry out duties as the Person in Charge for the service on a rostered basis, acting as a Duty Manager ensuring safe staffing and responding to issues arising during the course of the shift.

About you

The successful candidate will have previous care experience, including a Level 2 in Health & Social Care (or equivalent) and as a self-motivated individual, you will be willing to work towards Level 3. Throughout your working day you will use elements of Makaton, Moving & Handling, First Aid, Epilepsy and Safeguarding so ideally you will have experience or knowledge in these areas (though full training will be provided during our induction).

This role will see you lead a team of staff under the direction of the Manager, so you will be pro-active and versatile with a positive can-do approach to your work. No two days are the same, so the ability to respond calmly and methodically to unforeseen events is essential to ensure the smooth running of the service.
