Are you organised, driven and eager to contribute to the development of high quality services for people with learning disabilities? Look no further!
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced, motivated and adaptable manager to assist with the management of two small supported living projects supporting adults with learning disabilities.
Working alongside the Senior Support Worker and a team of Support Workers, you will provide excellent person centred care to ensure the tenants’ wellbeing, enabling independent and fulfilled living. This will involve supporting service users to take part in a range of meaningful and fun group activities, develop friendships and access services, as well as support with all aspects of day-to-day living. This may include working in partnership with family and advocates, where possible and appropriate.
This is a valuable opportunity to have a positive impact on the life of the people we support, by taking responsibility for encouraging a culture of respect and dignity, providing supervision and clear management to a team of Support Workers, as well as developing and implementing care plans designed to provide meaningful choice and support to tenants.
We are looking for someone with prior experience of supporting people with high and complex needs, who will instil a culture of continuous improvement, transparency, self-reflection and respect for those in need of support, through dialogue with service users, their families, advocates and others. The right candidate will be able to demonstrate a track record in motivating and developing staff, alongside an understanding of leadership in social care and excellent interpersonal skills. Ideally they will also have experience of PMLD, mental health and complex care conditions, as well as providing and planning end of life care support.
