Do you have the commitment and values to make a real difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities in Camden? Are you passionate about empowering them to improve their quality of life, while supporting them to realise their hopes, dreams and aspirations?
Creative Support is a not-for-profit organisation which provides high quality, person-centred support to people with learning disabilities and other support needs. We are looking to recruit Female Support Workers (drivers) to join our friendly staff team in Camden. The support we offer is tailored to the individual client’s needs and wants, whilst encouraging independence and community engagement.
We are looking for enthusiastic, resourceful, and energetic Female Support Workers (drivers) in Camden who are to provide individualised, person-centred support to a young person with multiple profound learning disabilities. They are a wheelchair user living in a flat connected to their family home and have additional complex health needs including epilepsy and a visual impairment. Part of your role will require driving the individual to activities, day trips, hospital appointments etc., in their car, so a full, clean driving licence obtained over 6 months ago is essential.
You must be willing to embrace all aspects of the role including, but not limited to, providing support with personal care, accessing activities and social opportunities. We value the personal skills and interests you bring to the role and to the lives of the people we support, such as creative arts, music, and cooking to name a few.
We are looking for Female Support Workers to enable this individual to enjoy a fulfilling and valued life, to participate actively in the community and to develop their abilities as fully as possible.
Creative Support is committed to your continuous professional development. As a successful candidate, you will receive a full local and corporate induction, and attain a NVQ level 3 certificate in Health and Social Care. You will have access to ongoing professional development from our training offices in London and the opportunity to discuss your training and development needs during regular supervision and appraisal meetings.
You will be required to work in a flexible manner, on a roster basis, which will include evenings, weekends and may also include occasional waking nights. Previous experience, whilst desirable, is not necessary – what we need most from you is warmth, kindness, and a positive, can-do attitude.
Creative Support is a passionate, inclusive, and anti-racist organisation. We are a Stonewall Diversity Champion, Disability Confident Employer who have recently received Investors in People Silver award. We actively encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds and cultures.
