We are looking to welcome new staff into our busy and dynamic mental health team. We work across 2 Bradford Accommodation bases, Oakvale and Hilltop ensuring positive mental health and housing related support in a personalised way. The successful candidate will engage with service users and build trusting therapeutic relationships.

The role of an Accommodation Recovery Support Worker includes visiting service users in their own homes or in other settings and offering practical support to enable them to live independently while also offering emotional support in accordance with their individual support plans. The role is varied for example one day you could be helping a service user to complete a housing benefit form or offer practical support around a household task; the next day you could be assisting someone to access a day service or set up a direct debit to pay their utility bills. You will receive extensive training and excellent peer support.

If you have excellent interpersonal skills and if you are supportive, proactive, responsible, good at motivating people and listening to others then we would like to hear from you.

Experience of working in the care and support sector is preferred; however, if you are a student who has recently completed a relevant qualification and you share our drive, values and passion for helping people with mental health needs, then we would also like to hear from you. This role does not involve delivering personal care. It is beneficial if you are a car driver but not essential. Good written communication also important. We appreciate flexibility from all our staff and hence we also can be flexible around working hours it is a large team and we are looking for a diverse range of skills.

Applicants must submit a completed Creative Support application form which can be requested or downloaded via the listed methods. You may attach a CV if you wish to support your application but CVs alone will not be accepted. An enhanced DBS check is required, which Creative Support pays for. Creative Support is not a recruitment sourcing agency; all employees are directly employed by us. We do not accept 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. Please note applications will be shortlisted as they are received and we may contact you before the closing date to arrange an interview.
