Space Inclusive is an East Midlands based social enterprise that is committed to improving the lives and prospects of people with learning disabilities and learning difficulties by offering appropriate and aspirational opportunities.

Space Inclusive is a creative and forward-thinking enterprise supporting around 150 people across 5 sites in Nottinghamshire. We provide person-centred programmes for young adults with learning disabilities aged 18+ who have a personal budget. We offer practical real-life based activities that will support them in their transition from school or college into a sustainable adult life.

We recognise that there are many challenges that young adults can face and we strive to support people’s individual needs through small group working and providing access to a range of opportunities in three main areas: skills for employment, skills for supported / independent living and social skills.

We are currently looking to appoint a Senior Support Worker for one of our Nottingham sites.  The post-holder will be responsible for monitoring the day-to-day running of the site and the staff team.  You will be responsible for co-ordinating the weekly timetable of activities for clients and arranging staff cover where necessary.

The successful candidate will have at least two years’ experience of providing support to adults with learning difficulties.

The successful candidate will have regular support and supervision, flexible working opportunities, good rates of pay and enhanced workplace pension as well as increasing holiday allowance in line with years’ service.

If you are interested, please get in touch with Claire Smith either by telephone 0115 837 0693 or email office@spaceinclusive.co.uk
