Do you have the commitment and values to make a real difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities? 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.

We are looking for calm, resourceful and energetic Support Workers who are highly motivated, hardworking and keen to support people with learning disabilities and mental health needs in a proactive and holistic manner at our Barnet service. 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 the people at our Barnet service 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 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, such as, sports and outdoor pursuits, creative arts, music and cooking, to name but a few.

Creative Support is committed to your continuous professional development. If you are successful for the position of Support Worker, you will receive a full local and corporate induction, and attain a level 3 certificate in ‘Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care’. On completion of your probationary period, you will automatically be enrolled onto the NVQ level 3 diploma in Health and Social Care. You will have access to ongoing professional development from our training offices in London and Reading, and the opportunity to discuss your training and development needs during regular supervision and appraisal meetings.

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