Short Job Description:

Creative Support is a national, fast growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. Our services focus on promoting recovery, wellbeing and greater independence.

Our Mental Health service in Whalley Range provides a holistic rehabilitation approach for up to 12 individuals with complex, severe and enduring mental health needs – including some tenants who have a forensic background.

We are seeking a warm, reliable and person centred individual to provide waking night support to our service users with the desire to promote independence. You will work on your own initiative and common sense as part of a team. Although working at night, you may be required to work during the day to attend meetings and other events. Relevant experience is desirable although full training is provided.

You will work in partnership with tenants on a rota shift basis to build meaningful and satisfying lives through the provision of flexible and personalised support. You will be part of people’s support network to enhance their skills to move onto less supported accommodation. You must be able to work in a non-judgmental manner, promoting hope, empowerment and inclusion.

What we offer…

Creative Support also offers a wide range of training courses and this will be a perfect opportunity for those who are seeking to progress in the health and social care sector as we also offer the QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care level 2 – 5. We will support your continuous development by providing accredited courses such as person centred planning, communication approaches and many more. Although previous experience in a similar role is more advantageous, we would like to encourage the people with the right values and passion to apply and work to make a difference.

In return we offer a wide range of benefits to ensure job satisfaction. This includes:
• Guaranteed Contracted Hours (Full or Part Time)
• QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 2, 3 and 5
• Free life assurance
• Pension with company contribution
• A range of employee discounts
