Creative Support is a not-for-profit social care provider supporting people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism spectrum conditions, and older people.
We are seeking to recruit a Female Support Worker to provide personalised care for a female service user who has learning disabilities and is on the autistic spectrum, providing support to her within her own home. We are looking for a motivated, caring individual whose responsibilities will include:
- Providing personal, practical and emotional care
- Identifying and accessing opportunities for social inclusion
- Collaborating with service users, families and involved professionals to provide a consistent and coordinated service that meets the needs of service users
- Assisting the Senior Support Worker with the day-to-day running of the service
This is a fantastic service which delivers successful and supportive outcomes for the individuals that we support. We need staff who have the commitment and dedication to go the extra mile, enabling our service users to achieve their personal goals.
Experience of working with people with a learning disability is desirable, as is a relevant professional qualification. The position is open to graduates, experienced practitioners, and those who are looking to start their career in social care. You will be expected to work flexibly on a rota to meet the needs of the service including evenings, weekends and bank holidays. The service is easy to travel to from any point across South Manchester, with regular bus links to and from Manchester city centre.
We offer the opportunity to work in an environment that encourages personal and professional development.
