Short Job Description:

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 various physical and mental disabilities, learning disabilities and dementia. The support we offer is tailored to the individual client’s needs and wants, whilst encouraging independence and community engagement.

This is an exciting time to join our Tower Hamlets extra care services, as we solidify our presence in the borough. 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 access to ongoing professional development from our training offices in London and Reading, and the opportunity to discuss your training and development needs during regular supervision and appraisal meetings.

We are looking for calm, resourceful, and energetic individuals who are 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.

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 verve, gumption and a can-do attitude.

We do not accept CVs in lieu of a completed Creative Support application form. All job offers are subject to the satisfactory completion of an enhanced DBS check, the costs of which are borne by Creative Support. Creative Support is not a recruitment sourcing agency, all employees are directly employed by our organisation. We do not accept cold calls or sales/marketing contact from recruitment candidate sourcing/advertising agencies.
