Do you have the commitment and values to make a real difference to the lives of people with care needs? Are you passionate about empowering them to improve their quality of life, while supporting them to realise their hopes, dreams and aspirations?

Creative Support is a not-for-profit organisation which provides high quality, person-centred support to people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health needs and dementia. The support we offer is tailored to the individual client’s needs and encourages independence and community engagement.

We are looking for calm, resourceful, and energetic individuals who are highly motivated, hardworking, and keen to support older people in a proactive and holistic manner. You will have well-honed skills in positive communication (must be able to speak fluent Bengali) and engagement, and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for our all our service users. You will support people to maintain a healthy state of wellbeing, mentally, physically and emotionally. You will (alongside members of the person’s circle of support) empower individuals to be happy, healthy, and successful in achieving their life goals. Flexible hours and working patterns can be considered. We are a local provider employing a diverse team of over 100 well supported staff to deliver great services.

Creative Support is committed to your continuous professional development and as a successful candidate, you will receive a full local and corporate induction, and attain a level 3 certificate in ‘Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care’.

You will be required to work in a flexible manner, which will include evenings, weekends and sleep-ins. Previous experience, whilst desirable, is not necessary – what we need most from you is gumption and a can-do attitude.

We offer all employees competitive pay and a pension contribution in addition to 28 days annual leave. As an employer that is committed to the professional development of our staff we also support our care staff to complete the nationally recognised Care Certificate and pay for your enhanced DBS.
