Short Job Description:

Creative Support is a busy and dynamic national charity with a track record in providing high quality, person centred support services in over 60 Local Authorities.

We are seeking a talented and highly committed writer to join our busy Bid Writing Team. The role will involve writing bids/proposals, editing your colleagues’ bids and creating/delivering presentations. You will mentor junior members of the team to ensure you are promoting ongoing professional development and the production of top quality bids. You will also be required to contribute to the development and improvement of new services.

You will be educated to degree level with a first class or 2:1 degree in a literate subject. You will also have a passion for writing and have experience in writing bids within the health & social care sector (with a specialism in either mental health, learning disabilities or older people). You will need to be well organised, hard working and flexible as this is a fast paced and challenging role, working to multiple deadlines. You will have excellent writing & editing abilities, as well as strong IT and research skills. You will be able to write creative, aspirational and meaningful submissions which reinforce our person centred and innovative approach to supporting vulnerable adults to achieve positive outcomes.

A genuine interest in and awareness of health & social care policy/strategy and the wider sector is essential. Continuous professional development will be provided but you must be able to work independently, willing to work flexibly and positively mobilise the team to meet the changing needs of the organisation.

You will be based at our friendly Stockport head office with other hard working and highly performing people. There will be scope for some home working on successful completion of probationary period.
