Salary: £21,375.64 per annum
Hours: Full time, 37 hours per week (including days, evenings, occasional waking nights and some weekends)
We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to assist and support the Project Manager of two small supported living projects for 2 adults with learning disabilities – potentially increasing to 3 service users in future.
Working alongside the Project Manager and a team of Support Workers, you will be involved in providing 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; including working in partnership with family and advocates, where possible and appropriate.
With the support of the Project Manager, you will contribute to the development of the team and carry out delegated tasks as required. You will be responsible for encouraging a culture based on respect and dignity for those in need of care and support, providing supervision and acting as a role model for a team of Support Workers. You will also support the Project Manager with the development and implementation of care plans designed to provide meaningful choice and support to tenants.
The role will be divided between actively supporting people with complex needs and providing administrative support across the two services. It is therefore desirable that the candidate has experience of both supporting people with high and complex needs, as well as being computer literate. Ideally the candidate will have experience of PMLD, mental health and complex care conditions and experience of providing and planning end of life care support would also be an advantage.
We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about delivering excellent quality service and managing a varied workload, with a willingness to learn and develop new skills, and the ability to work well as part of a team.
Candidates are strongly encouraged to read the full job description before submitting their application.
