Do you have the commitment and positive values to make a difference to the lives of people living in supported living services in Dudley?

Creative Support is a non-profit organisation which provides high quality person centred social care services for people with learning disabilities, mental health and other needs. Our supported living services in Dudley provide person-centred support to adults with learning disabilities, all who have unique support needs, likes and dislikes.

We are looking for enthusiastic, resourceful and energetic individuals who are well motivated, hardworking and keen to join our friendly team. You will provide person-centred support to tenants to take part in all aspects of everyday life and to engage and participate with their local communities. Although previous experience is not essential, you will demonstrate the values that are essential for a role of this nature such as warmth, compassion and unconditional positive regard.

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a new service where you will be able to contribute to the shaping of a brand new team. You will receive a full local and corporate induction after which you will attain a level 3 certificate in 'Preparing to work in adult social care’. On successful completion of your probationary period you will automatically be enrolled onto the level 3 diploma in health and social care. You will have access to ongoing training and personal development through regular supervisions and appraisals. You will be required to work in a flexible manner on a rota which includes evenings, weekends and sleep-ins. In addition to opportunities for personal and career development we offer good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture.

Applicants must submit a completed Creative Support application form which can be requested or downloaded via the listed methods. You may attach a CV if you wish to support your application but CVs alone will not be accepted. An enhanced DBS check is required, which Creative Support pays for. Creative Support is not a recruitment sourcing agency; all employees are directly employed by us. We do not accept contact from recruitment candidate sourcing/advertising agencies. Upon receipt of your application we will email you a confirmation of receipt. If you do not receive this confirmation email please contact us via telephone or email. Contact information can be found on our company website. Please note applications will be shortlisted as they are received and we may contact you before the closing date to arrange an interview.
