Activity Support Worker
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.
We have an exciting opportunity available for an Activity Support Worker to initiate, plan and provide enjoyable and stimulating group and one-to-one activities to clients. These activities will be based on the needs, interests and preferences of older people living in our care services in Tower Hamlets. You will facilitate social inclusion and community links as well as promote physical and mental wellbeing, confidence and independence.
You will have good written and verbal communication skills and the ability to facilitate group activities. Experience working with people with a learning disability, dementia, mental health needs, and/or physical disabilities would be an advantage but it is not essential.
We are looking for enthusiastic, resourceful and energetic individuals who are motivated, hardworking and keen to join our friendly team. You will demonstrate key values that are essential for a role of this nature such as warmth, compassion and unconditional positive regard, along with the ability to work flexibly.
The role requires the successful candidate to work 30 hours per week on a weekly rota that will include some evening and weekend working.
