Job description
Recruiting for 2X Support Workers to join our Vulnerable Adult Service in Lambeth!
GBP £22,568 per annum working 40 hours per week, plus 25 days Annual Leave, Pension schemes, Staff discounts, healthcare and more.
Job Overview:
Support Workers will provide support to customers to help them develop the life skills they require to meet the assessed needs of the customers of the service. They will work with customers to promote social inclusion and alongside other members of the team to promote independent living, encouraging customers to maximise their skills and choices.
The service provides specialist support to our customers in a range of areas including: borderline mental health issues, histories of complex offending and anti social behaviours, substance misuse issues, survivors of domestic violence and rough sleepers.
We work with some of the most complex and challenging people in the UK and every working day presents interesting - and unusual - incidents, situations and activities. Many of our customers will have been through the cycle of homelessness several times before, so a successful candidate will require an unquenchable can-do attitude and a healthy capacity for patience.
Given the complex traumas experienced by our customers we are ideally looking for emotionally resilient candidates that have some experience in dealing with complex and challenging behaviours and/or are interested in developing a therapeutic and psychologically informed approach and environment.
Key Responsibilities:
* Building supportive, trusting relationships with customers
* Working proactively with other members of the team to handle the service caseload and administrative responsibilities
* Supporting key customers to set personalised goals in the form of a Support Plan
* Conducting regular key work sessions that are innovative and engaging in order to achieve Support Plan goals
* Ensuring ongoing assessment and management of risks associated with customers within an attitude of 'positive risk taking'
* Providing support with daily living activities, including practical assistance where skills are not yet developed, to ensure that customers enjoy a high quality of accommodation
* Proactive development of links with local statutory and voluntary organisations to provide a range of engagement opportunities for customers in the community
* Involving customers in the design, development and delivery of the service
* Empowering customers to ensure they receive the service and benefits they are entitled to
* Encouraging and enabling tenants to pay their rent and ensure that rent accounts are managed
* Ensuring Look Ahead Health and Safety policies are adhered to at all time and to uphold all health and safety responsibilities within relevant policies and local protocols
* Adhering to all other Look Ahead's policies and procedures
* Engaging in learning and development activity to increase knowledge and skills
* Day to day instruction/ supervision of Assistant Support Workers/ domestic staff/ Personal Support Assistants where appropriate
* Undertaking any other duties consistent with the grade and nature of the post as assigned by the Team Leader/ Manager
