Not For Profit People
We are looking for people to join a supported living service in Hackney, providing support for young adults with autism and learning disabilities.
Our client has been providing high-quality support and care services to vulnerable people for more than 40 years in London and has grown from strength-to-strength.
Role: Support Worker
Location: Hackney, London, E5
Salary: £21,497.00 per annum
Contract: Full time 38 hrs per week
Closing date: 10th September 2021
Interview date: 20th September 2021
About the role:
As Support Worker you will help young adults with autism and learning disabilities, to transition into adulthood and independence while living in their own flat.
You will have a workplace environment where you will be gaining experience through hands-on support work, administration, and exposure to a variety of health professionals, families, and the intricate individuality of every service user you will support. Whether you are a student studying a degree in a relevant field, or looking for a job that will provide you with the chance to gain a wide range of experience in the sector of support work, this role is for you!
Although experience in support work is ideal, this position is suitable for anyone who would enjoy the challenge of facilitating a better quality of life for people with disabilities who are often excluded from society. If you have experience in your private life with supporting these individuals, this is also beneficial.
You need to be energetic, as service users love to be supported with accessing the community and getting physical exercise. You also need to be an open and skilful communicator, to build positive relationships not only with your service users, but their families, friends and health professionals. Promoting good practice, providing person centred care and using PBS approaches is essential to this role.
As well as knowing what you do makes a difference to people’s lives every day, you will also receive a great benefits package:
Our client is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of adults at risk and expects all staff to share this commitment. If the post you apply for involves working with or having access to adults at risk and/or their records, we will require an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Services for successful candidates. This will be fully subsidised.
If you feel you have the necessary skills and choose to apply, then you will be redirected to our client’s website where you will need to complete an application form detailing how you meet the requirements of the role by referring to the job description and person specification.
Whilst experience is not essential as full training will be provided we very much welcome previous experience working as: Support Worker, Home Carer, Care Worker, Health Care Assistant, Support Worker, Nurses, Social Care Worker, Care Assistant, Mental Health Care Worker, Voluntary Worker.
