Are you ready for the next step in your career? Interested in a management or supervisory role as part of a team dedicated to offering high quality support to people with learning disabilities? Do you have engaging and creative activity ideas for the people we support to take part in, learn and have fun?

We have an exciting opportunity to take on the role of Senior Support Worker within one of our Supported Living Services in Islington, which provides support to 19 adults with learning disabilities – including mild-to-moderate and Profound to Multiple learning disabilities – and a range of other needs, including mental health and complex health needs.

The role involves assisting with 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 actively participate in the aim of the service, including planning and delivering a range of creative and social activities both on site and in the community.

This role will also involve mentoring and providing support and supervision to a team of support staff.

Strong IT skills will enable you to support the Deputies/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.

  • We believe in offering great opportunities for staff development, enabling staff to be innovative and proactive in delivering the best possible outcomes for the people we support
  • A range of training and development opportunities
  • Regular support and supervision, as well mentoring
  • A vibrant, friendly and supportive work environment
