Are you ready for the next stage of your career? Could you lead a team whilst supporting people with learning disabilities?
As a Senior, you will combine supervising Support Workers with providing direct support to 3 adults with learning disabilities.
You'll develop rotas, supervise staff, become involved in the recruitment, selection and induction of new staff, and generally ensure a high standard of practice in the service. You will work closely with the staff team, leading by example to ensure the people we support are living a life that makes sense to them. You'll encourage your team and identify training needs, whether that's formally or by way of day-to-day coaching and reflection
You must have experience supporting vulnerable people, ideally those with a learning disability. Perhaps you have been a support worker or care worker and are now looking to step up to a more senior role. You will need to be flexible and organised, with a positive approach. You must be a driver with a manual licence, as you will be driving service vehicles, together with your own transport. Attention to detail, and good Microsoft Word and Excel skills are also essential.
