Our Middlesbrough Floating Support service requires a Senior Support Worker for the provision of ‘Care at Home’ in support of people with a range of different needs, mental health and learning disabilities.

This is a dynamic and growing community based service that offers a range of support packages to people living in their own homes. Support is also offered in three of our supported living schemes near the town centre of Middlesbrough.

You will provide outcome focused support to enable service users to lead fulfilling and valued lives, maintain their tenancies, participate in their local community, develop independent living skills and achieve their personal goals and desired outcomes.

This is an opportunity for personal and career development as we offer good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture

You will have the opportunity to work with our positive behaviour support practitioner team in order that we continue to deliver innovative and specialised services. You will encourage staff to take responsibility for upholding positive workplace values and building great working relationships.

You must have skills in positive communication and engagement and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for the people we support. You will also have skills in the assessment of needs along with positive and proactive risk management so that support planning for individuals demonstrates an active and fulfilling life with an emphasis on a ‘can do’ approach.

As well as providing direct support you will manage and deploy staff effectively to meet the needs of service users, taking into account their personalised schedules and activity plans.

We do not accept CVs as a form of application, 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.
