We are currently looking to recruit a number of full time support workers to join our Supporting Independence Service team in Cliftonville.
Working to the guidelines of Valuing People Now, you will offer a personalised service to up to 11 adults with learning disabilities within our two supported living homes located in Cliftonville. You will utilise their personal support plans to enable them to develop the life skills that they require to become as independent as possible within their own homes and their community. An element of personal care may also be required for this role.
You will work shifts on a flexible rota pattern and this will include evenings, weekend, bank holidays (enhanced pay available) and sleep-in’s (payable at £70.47 per night). As a full time employee of East Kent Mencap who is covering two sleep-ins a week, you will earn between £21,829.92 and £24,273.40 per annum.
Ideally you will already hold an NVQ 2 or a diploma in health and social care but if not you will be supported by East Kent Mencap to gain this qualification. In return we offer a full induction and training programme. A bespoke salary progression framework, a generous length of service holiday scheme and sickness allowance, pension, childcare vouchers and employee benefit package.
Being holders of the positive about disabled people award, disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria will be offered an interview in every circumstance.
To apply for this role, please send your CV and covering letter to Alison Fengas, or call 01843 224482 for an application form.
Candidates selected for interview will be contacted shortly after the closing date of 30th June 2018. However, due to business need we do reserve the right to close this job early should we receive a suitable quota of candidates. The post is subject to Disclosure Barring Service checks.
