Salary: £9.75 - £10.50 per hour
Employment type: Temporary
Are you ready for the next stage of your career? Could you lead a team whilst supporting people with learning disabilities?
The position is initially an 8 month temporary contract but this may be extended.
As a Senior, you will combine supervising Support Workers with providing direct support to four women with learning disabilities and autism, aged between 18 and 50.
Some of the people who live here will require assistance with personal care and eating and drinking, they also have some behaviours of concern that will require your support.
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.
This role is 30 hours a week, and you'll take your turn working shifts on a 24x7 rota.
*We are only able to accept female applicants for this role due to the operational needs of the service
You will have some experience working with vulnerable people, and ideally some experience mentoring more junior staff. We are looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.
You MUST be a driver with a manual licence as you will need to drive service mobility vehicles when lockdown is relaxed
