Short Job Description:

Creative Support is a non-profit provider of personalised care and support for people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum conditions, and older people. We are recruiting a Support Worker for our service for 12 people with learning disabilities and complex health needs, who live in two attractive new build properties in Wythenshawe.

We are looking for a motivated, caring individual to provide person-centred support to people with a learning disability in Wythenshawe. Your responsibilities will include:
• Providing personal care, practical and emotional to people with a learning disability
• Identifying and accessing opportunities for social inclusion with service users
• Collaborating with service users, families, and involved professionals to provide a consistent and coordinated service that meets the needs of service users
• Assisting the line manager with the day-to-day running of the service

This is a fantastic service which enables great outcomes for the people we support. We are looking for staff who have the commitment and dedication to go the extra mile to enable people to achieve their personal goals.

Experience of working with people with a learning disability is desirable, as is a relevant professional qualification. The position is open to graduates, experienced practitioners, and people looking to start their career in social care. You must be warm and able to work in a person-centred way with people with a learning disability.

You will be expected to work flexibly on a rota to meet the needs of the service, including evenings, weekends, and bank holidays. The service is easy to travel to from across South Manchester as it is opposite the metrolink stop in Wythenshawe and therefore it is not necessary to be a car driver.

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 service user group you work with and training regarding changes to the law governing social care.

An enhanced DBS check is required, which we pay for. Creative Support is not a recruitment sourcing agency; all employees are directly employed by our organisation.
