Creative Support is a non-profit provider of personalised care and support for people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum conditions, and older people. We are recruiting Relief Support Workers for our services and Outreach Service, who support people with learning disabilities and physical disabilities, who live in a supported living based in Sheffield.
We are looking for motivated, caring individuals to provide person-centred support to people with a learning disability who live in a supported living setting in Sheffield.
Your responsibilities will include:
- Providing support, personal care, practical and emotional to people with a learning disability & physical disability who live in supported living setting or within their own homes
- Identifying and accessing opportunities for community involvement with service users
- Collaborating with service users, families, and involved professionals to provide a consistent and coordinated service that meets the needs of service users
- Assisting the line manager with the day-to-day running of the service and Outreach Service
This is a fantastic network of services which enables great outcomes for the people we support. We are looking for staff who have the commitment and dedication to go the extra mile to enable people to achieve their personal goals and live a happy life.
Experience of working with people with a learning disability is essential, as is a relevant professional qualification. You must be warm and able to work in a person-centred way with people with a learning disability.
The service users have vehicles so a driving license is preferable. Sheffield has good bus and train services for staff travelling by public transport. 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 will be interviewing for this role as suitable applications are received and may close this role before the closing date upon a successful candidate being appointed.
We can only accept applications from candidates who are located in and eligible to work within the UK.
