Creative Support is a national not-for-profit organisation which is looking to recruit warm and person centred individuals in your area to provide the highest standards to service users with support needs. With a strong history of over twenty years in helping individuals with a wide range of needs to live independent and fulfilling lives, we ensure that our clients enjoy opportunities for personal development and engaging within their local communities.

We are looking for a warm, motivated person with leadership qualities to lead a small team of support workers to enable tenants with a learning disability to live an active life, enjoy well-being and promote greater independence within their own homes in Newbury. The team provides floating support to individuals across the West Berkshire area (Theale, Thatcham and Newbury) and is based out of our office in Newbury. You will ensure our staff use a structured approach to implementing person centred planning, communication approaches, positive risk management and positive behaviour support guidelines. You will need to be highly committed to excellent communication with our tenants, their families and all stakeholders. You must have a professional approach with the ability to supervise and guide our staff team to deliver a consistently responsive and personalised service.

Although relevant qualification is desirable, we do also offer QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 2/3 and higher. Previous experience in a similar field is essential whilst supervising and mentoring staff is preferable. As a senior practitioner and supervisor, we will support your continuous development by providing accredited courses such as person centred planning, communication approaches and many more.

We do not accept CV's as a form of application, applicants must submit a completed Creative Support application form which can be requested or downloaded via the listed methods. An enhanced DBS check is required for which we pay for. Creative Support is not a recruitment sourcing agency, all employees are directly employed by our organisation. We do not accept cold calls or sales/marketing contact from recruitment candidate sourcing/advertising agencies. Upon receipt of your application we will email you a confirmation of receipt. If you do not receive this confirmation email please contact us via telephone or email. Contact information can be found on our company website.
