Short Job Description:

We are looking for warm, resourceful and energetic individuals to initiate our friendly and experienced team of Support Workers for our Mental Health supported accommodation service in Sheffield.

Service Users can live at the service for up to 2 years and within this time the Recovery Workers will work with individual service users to provide positive mental health and housing related support in a personalised way.

The position involves undertaking the responsible role of being a Key Worker/Co-worker. This will enable you to plan alongside members of the person’s circle of support to enable individuals to be happy, healthy and to be successful in achieving their wishes and aspirations. Our Person centred planning meetings and processes are co-produced with the people we support and their families to promote a unified approach. Together you will set meaningful and aspirational goals which you will take responsibility to work towards. This will provide you with a great experience to enable you to develop skills which can underpin a successful career in adult social care.

The ideal candidates will have previous experience of working with people that are experiencing mental health problems, either in a community, residential or inpatient setting. You will need to be motivated with good communication skills and a commitment to achieve positive outcomes using a person-centred approach.

We provide relevant training including accredited health and social care diplomas through our own training academy. In addition to opportunities for personal and career development we offer good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture.

This is a role which can be enjoyed by people who are committed to making a positive difference, including experienced support workers, graduates and people looking for a stimulating career path into social care.
