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 Trafford 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 Trafford provides person centred support to young adults who have learning disabilities, some of whom are on the autistic spectrum and have complex needs.

We are looking for calm, resourceful and energetic individuals who are well motivated, hardworking and who are looking forward to joining our friendly team. You will provide person centred care and support tenants to take part in all aspects of every day life and to enjoy 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.

You will have the opportunity to undertake 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. Together we set meaningful and aspirational goals which Key Workers have a particular 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.

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 essential. We will value the personal skills and interests you bring to the role and to the lives of service users, such as sports, swimming, walking and outdoor pursuits, creative arts, music and cooking; to name but a few!
