Short Job Description:

Creative Support is a non-profit provider of person centred care and support to older people, people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, and autism spectrum conditions. We are recruiting Support Workers for our Supported Living services for people with mental health needs in Toxteth, Netherley and the City Centre in Liverpool.

We are recruiting a motivated, warm individual for the role of Support Worker to provide person-centred care and support to people with mental health needs at our services in Liverpool. Your role will include:
• Providing practical and emotional support to service users in line with Personal Support Plans

• Working with service users in a recovery-focused way in line with their support and risk management plans
• Collaborating with service users, families, and involved professionals to provide a consistent and coordinated service that maximises outcomes for service users

Experience of working with people with mental health needs is not essential; however, you must have a warm personality and be able to work in a person-centred way. A clean driving licence and access to a car is beneficial.

You are expected to work flexibly on a rota to meet the needs of the service, including evenings, weekends, sleep-ins, and bank holidays.

This position offers the opportunity to work in an environment that challenges and encourages personal and professional development. Creative Support has obtained Investors in People Silver status and you will receive ongoing training regarding the client group you work with, managerial qualifications, and up-to-date training regarding changes to the law governing social care.
