Waking Night Concierge Worker

Location Fleetwood, Lancashire
Salary Up to £7.90ph inc of night supplement
Closes 27 Jan 2017

Do you have the commitment and positive values to make a difference to the lives of people living within a Complex Needs service in Fleetwood. This particular service supports people living in their own flats, who have very complex needs and very unique abilities that require quite focussed support and a good understanding of the need to follow specific guidelines.

Creative Support is a non-profit organisation which provides high quality person centred social care services for people with learning disabilities, mental health and other needs. Our Complex needs service in Fleetwood provides person-centred support to adults who have chaotic lives, mental health support needs, potential for substance and alcohol misuse and dependency, low level learning disability and other complex needs.

We are looking for calm, resourceful and energetic individuals who are well motivated, hardworking and keen to join our friendly team. You will provide person-centred support to tenants to take part in all aspects of every-day life and to learn the skills to enable them to maintain a tenancy independently. 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 maturity to be able to work within clear guidelines focussing on enabling service users to accept responsibility for a tenancy and to grow in confidence as a valued member of their community. You must be able to follow agreed guidelines and to work positively within a consistent, mutually supportive team ethos.

The Waking Night Concierge post is an opportunity to provide support for people with complex needs and requires a level of empathy and understanding for people who can challenge services, often in place to help them manage their lives. Together we set meaningful and aspirational goals which Key Workers have a particular responsibility to work towards. This will provide you with a great experience to enable you to develop skills which can underpin a successful career in adult social care. Prior experience in this field of work is beneficial, although not a substitute for an engaging, creative and person centred approach.

These roles offer unique and challenging opportunities, bringing great job satisfaction to those who are looking to make a positive difference to the lives of others. We provide relevant training including accredited health and social care diplomas through our own training academy. You will be required to work in a flexible manner on a rota which includes evenings, weekends and wake night cover. In addition to opportunities for personal and career development we offer good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture.

This is a role which can be enjoyed by people who are committed to making a positive difference, including experienced care workers, graduates and people looking for a stimulating career path within social care.

We do not accept CV’s as a form of application, applicants must submit a completed Creative Support application form which can be requested or downloaded via the listed methods. An enhanced DBS check is required for which we pay for. Creative Support is not a recruitment sourcing agency; all employees are directly employed by our organisation. We do not accept cold calls or sales/marketing contact from recruitment candidate sourcing/advertising agencies.
