Valley Gardens is an Independent Living Service for adults with a Learning Disability.

We are seeking staff that can provide excellent person-centred care and support to tenants to assist and develop everyday living skills and to enjoy a wide range of activities. We require positive and enthusiastic staff who will demonstrate superb communication skills, that are able to work within positive behaviour support guidelines and who will encourage the tenants to live socially inclusive lives. The staff must be able to build a trusting and friendly rapport with all of the service users and to work within the guidelines of local and corporate policies in a dignified manner.

Staff must be flexible and willing to work the required shift patterns including evening, weekends and sleep-ins. The posts also offer potential candidates the opportunity to work across other services and with other individuals who have a range of support needs. In provision of this care we require warm, motivated and person centred individuals with a keen interest in providing personalised support to meet individual care plans.

We are looking to recruit people who enjoy a challenging and rewarding job and who wish to develop through the training packages that we offer.
