Job description

Support Worker (Transforming Care) 
Location: Uxbridge 
Application Deadline: 21 August 2020 
Salary: £11.17 per hour

Are you interested in a career that will truly make a difference to a young man’s life? At Certitude, not only are we proud of our history of supporting people with complex mental health needs and learning disabilities, we are also making history as we are supporting a young man to move into his own house as part of the Transforming Care programme. Transforming Care is all about supporting people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live in their own homes, in the community, and most importantly, closer to their family and friends. Ultimately, we will be part of creating a brighter, happier future filled with new opportunities and experiences for a young man.
 
Certitude is committed to being part of this nationwide change, and to do so successfully, we recognise the importance of staff development. With Certitude’s new Transforming Care support services, you will be supported to have the right skills and knowledge through:
 
- Specialist training including positive behaviour support, person-centred active support, autism training, communication training and non-abusive physical and psychological interventions (NAPPI)
- Support and training from the Family Support Lead
- Peer support, management supervision and reflective practice
- A competitive salary and scope for development
 
Who will you be supporting? 

You will be supporting a young man aspiring to live an independent and meaningful life in his own home with a specialist team of Support Workers. He enjoys life and has a lively personality with hobbies which include swimming, going to the beach and going for long walks and runs in parks! All staff brought on will have to work a certain number of nights including some sleep-in shifts. Cooking and cleaning skills would be desirable.
 
Your qualities… 

You will need to have a ‘can-do’ resilient attitude and be committed to inspiring positive change in this young person’s life. You will need to be engaging, patient and be able to inject fun in activities and during everyday support. A proactive approach is essential, and as no two days will be the same. You will need to be creative, intuitive and able to improvise when needed. If you have a curious mind and are solution orientated, we welcome you.
 
The young man is in the process of getting to know his family and is developing new, safe social networks in the local community. Therefore, you will be trusted by him and his family to play an integral and ongoing role in this area of support.
 
Previous experience of supporting people with learning disabilities and/or autism with complex support needs and behaviours which may challenge is advantageous, however Certitude will support you to build upon your skills – just come to us with the right approach and we will do the rest!
 
The current support team who work with the young person have described him as ‘really funny and clever’ and the staff team currently supporting him find it really rewarding. If you are interested in empowering and enriching the life of this young person, please apply now!

Other organisations may call this role Social Care Worker, Specialist Support Worker, Care Worker, Care Assistant, or Trainee Social Care Worker.
