Do you like a challenge? If so we are looking for confident, strong and calm individuals to work in our Lunedale Road supported living service to provide person centred support to service users who have either a learning disability; mental health; Autism and some behaviours that challenge so that they can experience a wide range of opportunities for personal development. The post is initially to cover maternity leave for a 12 month period. The Service is provided in 4 bungalows to adults aged between 18 and 70 years of age on a 1-1 basis; 2-1 when out in the community.

You will have skills in positive communication and engagement and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for the people we support. You will have the confidence to be able to work within a positive behaviour support framework, to accept responsibility and to develop as a skilled practitioner. You must be able to follow agreed guidelines and to work positively within a consistent, mutually supportive team ethos.

This post is to cover a 24hr rota pattern, which includes waking night support, as part of a friendly, motivated team.
