This is a 30 hour contract working over 4 days per week.
Creative Support is a national not-for-profit organisation which is looking to recruit a capable, person-centred individual to support the Registered Manager to lead the delivery of two extra care services in Carlisle.
You will be responsible for organizing and managing the provision of a personalised extra care service to older people living in their own flats within a high quality extra-care housing development. The service enables older people to enjoy an active lifestyle and to maintain their health and wellbeing whilst being supported to live as independently as possible. Community involvement is encouraged as is the valuable contribution of families, friends and neighbours.
You will be responsible for supervising and deploying a small staff team over a 7-day rota and for planning and reviewing the delivery of care and support to meet individual needs and preferences. You will have excellent values with the ability to provide respectful, personal care and to develop and sustain warm, trusting relationships with service users and families.
You will be accountable to the Registered Manager for ensuring that all CQC standards and requirements are met. You will work closely with Care Managers, GPs and other health professionals to provide responsive, holistic care. You will also liaise on a daily basis with our partner housing provider over all housing related issues, to ensure that the safety and quality of the living environment is maintained.
You will have at least 2 year’s relevant experience in the care and support of older people. Supervisory/management experience is desirable but not essential as long as you can demonstrate the professionalism and competence as a practitioner to lead the staff team.
A good standard of general education and a social care qualification (minimum level 3 NVQ/H&SC Diploma) is required with excellent communication skills.
You must be able to work flexibly and responsively and will be required to work shifts which will include evenings, weekends and bank holidays. In return for your hard work and dedication we will support you to gain further qualifications and to develop your career.
Creative Support is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to delivering local high quality care through a diverse and well trained local work force.
