Full Time

This is your chance to be part of something brilliant, where clinical interventions work hand in hand with daily support. You'll be joining a company who are on track to become market leaders in New Models of Care by 2021. This means we're not providing your traditional supported housing services but rather trailblazing the way in delivering brilliant long term outcomes for vulnerable people through integrated health, housing and care.

You'll be joining our brand new registered service in Manchester, which provides step down support to adults leaving hospital who have had an acute mental health diagnosis, providing a stepping stone for people who have been in a clinical environment (but no longer in need of a hospital bed) to semi-independent shared living, to finally living independently in the community. You'll be working alongside a Registered Mental Health Nurse on a daily basis who will advise you on support practice and in preventing future admission for customers who are in crisis. How amazing is that!

You'll be supporting customers to live their day to day lives as independently as possible. No two days are the same because everything you do is "person centred" around your customers. Each day will inspire and challenge you. So you may be helping with personal care in the morning and supporting them to attend college in the afternoon; we even help customers to go on holiday.

This is a waking nights role and you will be required to work on a rota basis from 8pm to 7am (to be confirmed) covering evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

There's lots for you to do, from leading on caseloads, risk assessments, support planning, goal setting as well as regular reviews. You'll also be partnering with local agencies. In this service there is no requirement to allocate work to other support workers as you will manage your own caseload. You will constantly learn new things and be stretched professionally, emotionally and practically; your learning will be immense.

And you won't be on your own, we are recruiting a big team to deliver excellent person centred support, so you're going to be part of a "Walton" size Family.

This is an exciting time to join one of the UK's leading providers of high quality housing and care and support services and one of the largest developers of new affordable homes for sale who are going through a significant period of growth that will enable them to build more homes, independence and aspirations.

You will be working in the one of the UK's Best Large Places to Work who have been voted that due to brilliant people like you!

You'll be super energised, with a positive can do attitude and buzzing to help build this flag ship service. Your empathy and creative spark will really shine through as will your ability to empower customers to reach their full potential. You'll bring previous experience of working with vulnerable people in a support or care environment which of course will include case management, safeguarding, risk assessments, working with external agencies and providing personal care. If you hold a Level 3 in Health and Social Care this would be ideal, but if you will be supported you to achieve this.

This is an excellent opportunity if you're looking for the next challenge and to work hand in hand with medical professionals to improve support practices. So you'll be trained within an inch of your life (so don't worry about that) to gain a true understanding of our systems and to capture all the excellent outcomes we are going to achieve. You will be working with a top of the range IT kit which could include a smart phone and surface pro tablet, so you can work on the go. No being chained to your desk with! There may be some travelling but don't worry it's all covered in your working hours and you can claim your mileage too.
