Waking Night Support Worker
We are seeking compassionate, positive and enthusiastic Waking Night Support Workers to join our established teams in the Ellesmere Port area.
We would love to hear from you if you have a genuine passion and drive to make a difference to people’s lives.
Creative Support is a national, fast growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs.
We are looking for respectful, warm and highly motivated individuals to work in Supported Living services within the Ellesmere Port area to support adults who have a learning disability. We offer an empowering model of support which enables people to lead fulfilling and happy lives, maintain their tenancies, participate in their local community, develop independent living skills and achieve their personal goals and desired outcomes. As well as providing direct care and support, you will have the opportunity to act as a Key Worker supporting people at our Ellesmere Port service to achieve their dreams and goals.
Waking Night Support Worker Duties:

- Shift work including weekends and bank holidays
- Medication administration
- Develop and sustain warm and trusting relationships with service users
