Do you have the commitment and values to make a real difference to the lives of people with care needs? Are you passionate about empowering them to improve their quality of life, while supporting them to realise their hopes, dreams and aspirations?

Creative Support is a not-for-profit organisation which provides high quality, person-centred support to people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health needs and dementia. The support we offer is tailored to the individual client's needs and encourages independence and community engagement.

We are looking for calm, resourceful, and energetic individual who is highly motivated, hardworking, and keen to support older people in a proactive and holistic manner. You will have well-honed skills in positive communication and engagement, and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for our all our service users. You will support people to maintain a healthy state of wellbeing, mentally, physically and emotionally. You will (alongside members of the person's circle of support) empower individuals to be happy, healthy, and successful in achieving their life goals. Flexible hours and working patterns can be considered. We are a local provider employing a diverse team of over 100 well supported staff to deliver great services.

Creative Support is committed to your continuous professional development and as a successful candidate, you will receive a full local and corporate induction, and attain a level 3 certificate in 'Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care'. On completion of your probationary period, you will automatically be enrolled onto the NVQ level 3 diploma in Health and Social Care. You will have the opportunity to discuss your training and development needs during regular supervision and appraisal meetings.

You must be willing to embrace all aspects of the role including, but not limited to, providing support with personal care and domestic tasks, and supporting individuals to access work, education and social opportunities. We value the personal skills and interests you bring to the role and to the lives of the people we support, such as, sports and outdoor pursuits, creative arts, music, and cooking to name but a few.

You will be required to work in a flexible manner, on a roster basis, which will include evenings, weekends and sleep-ins. Previous experience, whilst desirable, is not necessary - what we need most from you is gumption and a can-do attitude.
