An exciting opportunity has arisen within our extra care complex at
Oakland Village in Swadlincote. We are looking for experienced support
workers who will provide a holistic housing related support service

customers are able to live and remain independent within their own
homes for as long as possible and are able to remain active, involved
and engaged fully within the Oakland Village community.

Applicants must be able to support customers with outcomes under the
nationally recognised headings; Achieve economic wellbeing, enjoy and
achieve, be healthy, stay safe and make a positive contribution.
Applicants must also support customers to overcome isolation, live a
good quality of life, to make a home for life and to have an enjoyable
life. Support work is expected to be delivered to a high quality of
standard and in a person centred manner. Applicants will also be
expected to work in partnership with statutory and voluntary agencies
to ensure all identified support needs are met. Good communication
skills are essential for this role, and you must be able to
communicate effectively with residents, colleagues and partner
organisations.
