Creative Support is a national, fast growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. Our services provide responsive and person centred care which is specific to the needs of the individual. The key to achieving this quality of support is by having a staff workforce that is hardworking and committed to ensuring the best possible quality of life and independence for those we provide this care for, whilst providing a compassionate service.

The Extra Care Service in Leighton Buzzard is looking for a warm, motivated individual with leadership qualities to provide person centered support which enables older people to enjoy an active and independent lifestyle. You will provide compassionate care whilst promoting dignity, opportunity, choice and wellbeing. You must have good communication skills and be able to provide respectful personal care. You will also have the partial responsibility of staff deployment to ensure all levels are met. Experience of coaching and supervising staff and with a relevant social care qualification is desirable. You will be part of a wider group of team leaders and will benefit from peer support, direct supervision from the registered manager and involvement in senior development and social care governance meetings.

You will be working closely with the on-site Housing Provider and other agencies to ensure that a seamless service is provided that recognises individual strengths and skills and works to deliver the best quality of care and support. The service has a keen focus on maximising and maintaining the independence of those that are supported at St Georges Court.

Creative Support also offers a wide range of training courses and this will be a perfect opportunity for those who are seeking to progress in the health and social care sector as we also offer the QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care level 3 – 5. As a senior practitioner and supervisor, we will support your continuous development by providing accredited courses such as person centred planning, communication approaches and many more.

In return we offer a wide range of benefits including:

  • Guaranteed Contracted Hours
  • QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 2/3 and higher
  • Free life assurance
  • Pension with company contribution
  • A range of employee discounts
