Have you got experience of working with individuals who have a learning disability and/or physical disabilities? Are you looking for a rewarding new role and great job satisfaction? Do you have a passion for supporting vulnerable adults in your community?
We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated relief support workers to join our team providing support to people living in our supported housing development in Longwood, Huddersfield.
Our service in Calderdale has recently been assessed by CQC as ‘Outstanding’ at being ‘responsive to meeting people’s needs and helping them achieve and celebrate goals relating to their health, independence and social lives’.
You will be required to work effectively as part of a team to provide person centred support in a consistent manner to promote independence, inclusion, wellbeing and personal development. You must be motivated to provide personalised support based around activities that include; daily living tasks such as cooking, cleaning, laundry; supporting people to meet their personal care needs; and enabling people to safely access their local community.
This role offers:
• Opportunities to build rewarding professional relationships with people you support, and to make a real difference to their lives
• Support and companionship for vulnerable adults within your community
• Flexible shift patterns
• Commitment to your continuous development – the offer of accredited training courses and relevant Health and Social Care qualifications
• Good conditions of service
As a Creative Support Bank Staff member, you will have access to our free app, which allows you to pick up shifts in any area of the country and provides information on the service, including directions. Previous experience is essential for all relief positions.
You will be paid on a weekly basis.
We are a passionate, inclusive and anti-racist organisation. We embrace diversity and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and cultures. As a Disability Confident Employer we welcome applications from people with a disability, and as a proud Stonewall Diversity Champion we actively encourage applications from the LGBT+ community.
We would encourage you to apply to us even if you have not yet had your COVID 19 vaccine. You will be required to have your first COVID 19 vaccine prior to your interview and your second vaccine before you start work with us. This time will be used to complete post interview recruitment checks. Applicants who are unable to receive the vaccination on medical grounds are still welcome to apply with provision of their official NHS COVID pass letter of medical exemption.
We would encourage candidates to apply to this post as soon as possible. If we receive a large number of applications we may process these prior to the deadline.
