Short Job Description:

About the Service: An exciting new supported living service in Warwick has recently opened for people with learning disabilities, and we are looking to recruit warm, flexible and motivated individuals to provide administration support to these services. This is a fresh approach to supporting people in their own tenancies – this innovatively designed Housing with Care and Support service delivers a modern, comfortable and safe environment for people to thrive within.

Some of the people we support may have additional complex physical or other health and social needs. At Creative Support we maximise their sense of wellbeing and independence through tailored, ongoing care and support. We work to make a positive difference in the tenants’ lives and promote their independence at every step, whilst enabling to enjoy a fulfilling and valued life. We inspire the people we support to enjoy opportunities for personal development and engagement within their local communities.

Purpose of the role: As a Volunteer Administration Assistant you will provide administrative support to staff at our service. Tasks include answering the telephone, taking messages and passing them on to relevant staff, filing and data entry. Administration is essential for the smooth running of our services – it ensures our staff can continue to provide responsive and proactive support that meets our tenant’s needs. As a Volunteer Administration Assistant you will play a vital role in ensuring our information systems and paperwork are up to date and we respond to enquiries in a timely fashion.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to get back into employment or for someone wishing to gain administrative experience within a health and social care setting. We provide relevant training and you will meet with your volunteer supervisor regularly to look at ways your role can develop.

Suggested Time Commitment: Flexible.
