Opportunities for Support Workers in Redbridge, Newham, Hackney and Lewisham.
Are you a caring person looking to make a real difference? Do you want a career where you can change lives?
This is a great opportunity to work for an ambitious and progressive charity committed to making a positive difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities, autism and or mental health challenges.
We are looking for Support Workers who are positive, highly motivated, have a good attention to detail and are trustworthy people willing to go the extra mile to support adults to enjoy an active and fulfilling lifestyle.
As a Support Worker, you will work with people who have a variety of levels of ability and behaviours to support them to have control over and choice about their lives and to contribute to the community as equal citizens.
You must demonstrate a person-centred approach and a willingness to support people with their personal care, but as importantly help to provide a nurturing and developmental environment where people we support can flourish and become as independent as possible.
We would prefer people with previous experience in a paid and or voluntary capacity, but the right value set and an understanding of the barriers that people with a disability face are more important.
You must be willing to work flexible hours to meet the demands of the services. Flexible hours may include evenings, weekends, early mornings, late nights, sleeping-ins, bank holidays and supporting people to go on holiday as required.
We welcome applications from candidates who have any of the following skills: Support Worker, Healthcare, Mental Health, Learning Difficulties, Behaviour, Charity, Care, Support, Learning Disabilities, Autism, Social Care
If you would like to apply for this role, please state your preferred location.
Note: We have a robust recruitment process:
Applicants must complete a full Three Cs application form in order to be considered for the position.
A screening interview via Teams will take place to support deciding who to shortlist for interview.
Those successfully shortlisted will be invited for interview that will be composed of two practical elements, and, if successful at this stage, will then attend a more formal interview the same day.
Working with a highly motivated and supportive team that provides a positive working environment where training is important, and progression is encouraged. To that aim, we are Investors in People accredited, a disability confident employer and ISO 9001 (Quality Management Systems) certified.
The closing date for this role is 27th January 2022
Three Cs stands for 'Control and Choice in the Community' for people with learning disabilities, autism and/or mental health challenges. We support people to have control over and choice about their lives and to contribute to the community as equal citizens.
