Short Job Description:

Do you have the commitment and positive values to make a difference to the lives of people living in a supported living service in the Fazakerley area?

Creative Support is a non profit organisation which provides high quality person centred social care services for people with learning disabilities, mental health and other needs. Our supported living service in Fazakerley provides person centred support to adults on the Autism Spectrum and who may also have learning disabilities and complex needs.

We are seeking calm, resourceful and energetic individuals who are well motivated, hardworking and who are looking to join our friendly, dedicated team. You will provide person centred care and support to the individuals we support in all aspects of every day life and to facilitate a wide range of activities. You will have skills in positive communication and engagement and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for the people we support. You will have the required skills and qualities to manage behaviours that challenge the environment and others and will have the maturity to be able to work within a positive behaviour support framework, the ability to support people who can express their needs though challenging behaviour at times is essential. You must be able to follow agreed guidelines and to work positively within a consistent, mutually supportive team ethos.

The relief position enables you the opportunity to work alongside, and as an integral part of, our structured and hardworking teams across all projects within the Fazakerley service. This will enable you to develop a diverse range of experiences and knowledge whilst maintaining flexible working patterns to suit your circumstances. You will work closely with our local managers to book shifts either in advance, planned around your availability as well as being offered shifts on an ad-hoc basis.

You must be willing to actively embrace all aspects of the role including support with personal care and domestic tasks as well as promote and encourage opportunities to participate in community activities. Prior experience in this field of work is beneficial, although not a substitute for an engaging, creative and person centred approach. We will value the personal skills and interests you bring to the role and to the lives of service users, such as sports, walking and outdoor pursuits, creative arts, music and cooking; to name but a few!

This role offers unique and challenging opportunities bringing great job satisfaction to those who are looking to make a positive difference to the lives of others. We provide relevant training through our own training academy which you will be required to undertake. 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 care workers, graduates and people looking for a stimulating career path into social care.
