Are you ready for the next step in your career in social care? Keen to take on a supervisory role as part of a newly established team supporting people with learning disabilities? Are you passionate about engaging with people, providing creative and stimulating activities, and supporting individuals in maximising their independence and self-confidence?
If the answer is yes, then we would love to hear from you!
We have an exciting opportunity for two Senior Support Workers to join us at our brand-new flagship supported living service in Brent. The project will be supporting 10 adults with moderate to profound and complex learning disabilities, as well as additional mental and physical health needs.
These crucial roles will assist with the management of the day-to-day running of the service, coordinating person-centred care for service users and overseeing the development and implementation of care plans designed to provide meaningful choice and increase independence and participation. Working in partnership with service-users and their families, you will be actively involved in planning and delivering a range of creative and social activities both on site and in the wider community. You will also be mentoring and providing support and supervision to a team of dedicated support staff.
Strong IT skills will enable you to support the Project Manager by taking on responsibilities such as rota planning, payroll and service planning. Experience of supporting people with complex needs and additional mental health needs would also be advantageous.
