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. The support we offer is tailored to the individual client’s needs and wants, whilst encouraging independence and community engagement.

This is an exciting time to join our Tower Hamlets extra care services, as we solidify our presence in the borough. We are looking for calm, resourceful, and energetic Relief Support Workers who are highly motivated, hardworking, and keen to support older people at our Tower Hamlets services in a proactive and holistic manner. You will have well-honed skills in positive communication 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.

You must be willing to embrace all aspects of the Relief Support Worker role including, but not limited to, providing support with personal care and domestic tasks, and supporting individuals to access work, education and social opportunities. We value the personal skills and interests you bring to the role and to the lives of the people we support at our Tower Hamlets services, such as, sports and outdoor pursuits, creative arts, music, and cooking to name but a few.

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

As a Relief Support Worker you will have access to our free app which allows you to pick up shifts in any area of the country and provides information on the service and shifts, including directions.

You will be paid on a weekly basis.
