Creative Support is a non-profit provider of personalised care and support for people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum conditions, and older people. We are recruiting a Support Worker for our service for 12 people with learning disabilities and complex health needs, who live in two attractive new build properties in Wythenshawe.

We are looking for a motivated, caring individual to provide person-centred support to people with a learning disability in Wythenshawe.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Providing personal care, practical and emotional to people with a learning disability
  • Identifying and accessing opportunities for social inclusion with service users
  • Collaborating with service users, families, and involved professionals to provide a consistent and coordinated service that meets the needs of service users
  • Assisting the line manager with the day-to-day running of the service

This is a fantastic service which enables great outcomes for the people we support. We are looking for staff who have the commitment and dedication to go the extra mile to enable people to achieve their personal goals.

Experience of working with people with a learning disability is essential. You must be warm and able to work in a person-centred way with people with a learning disability.

The service is easy to travel to from across South Manchester as it is opposite the metrolink stop in Wythenshawe and therefore it is not necessary to be a car driver.

We do not accept CV 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, 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.
