Creative Support is a high quality provider of support to individuals with a wide range of care needs including learning disabilities, mental health and other needs. Employing over 5,000 staff members, we are continuing to grow at a fast pace nationally and are looking for dedicated, caring individuals to join our staff team in your local area.

We are looking for warm, flexible and motivated individuals to provide person centred care and support in our Bedfordshire Extra Care Service, which enables older people to enjoy an active and independent lifestyle. Your role will include:

  • Providing respectful personal care, practical and emotional support to older people
  • Maximising outcomes for clients by maintaining their independence and encouraging them to lead an active, fulfilling lifestyle
  • Collaborating with clients, their families and involved professionals to ensure a coordinated and consistent service

Experience is not essential for this role; however, you must have a warm, caring and respectful personality to succeed in this role. We welcome applications from experienced practitioners, graduates and individuals looking to pursue a career in social care.

We have Vacancies available at established services in Ampthill, Leighton Buzzard and Houghton Regis.

It is expected that you will work flexibly to meet the needs of the service, including evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

This unique and challenging opportunity will provide you with an environment that encourages personal and professional development. We will provide you with on-going training to best meet the needs of the service users.

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.

Closing Date: 13 December 2017
