Creative Support is a high quality provider of person centred service to people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum conditions, and older people.

We are recruiting for our supported living services in the Shrewsbury area. Within these services we support females with learning and physical disabilities in their own homes. The ladies we support in these services have a variety of hobbies and interests; musicals, listening to music, knitting, art, shopping, trips to other cities, football, soaps and days out.

For this role we are looking for warm, positive and dedicated individuals. Your role will include:

  • Providing practical and emotional support to service users
  • Maximising service users outcomes by developing daily living skills and promoting independence
  • Ensuring service users are able to enjoy valued, fulfilling lifestyles and access the local community

It is expected that you will work flexibly, including evenings, weekends, sleep-in and waking night shifts, to meet the needs of the service.

Experience is not essential for this role. You will have a warm, caring nature, and a commitment to making a positive difference in people’s lives. We welcome applications from experienced practitioners, graduates, and individuals looking to pursue a career in social care.

This unique and challenging opportunity will provide you with an environment that encourages personal and professional development. After successful completion of the probationary period, you will automatically be enrolled in the QCF Level 3 Health and Social Care Diploma and you will receive on-going training to best meet the needs of the service users.

Exempt from section 7 2e of the SDA.

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: 11 December 2017
