Creative Support is a national, fast-growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. We are seeking Recovery Support Workers to join our friendly teams in Blackley and North Manchester.

We are looking for respectful, warm and enthusiastic individuals to work at our Blackley and North Manchester service which provides person-centered support to individuals with mental health needs and/or learning disabilities. You will provide support to people in a recovery focused environment, promoting independence and move-on, enabling them to reach their full potential through education and training. You will have skills in positive communication and engagement, and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for the people we support. You will have the maturity to be able to work within a positive behaviour support framework, to accept responsibility and to grow in confidence as a skilled practitioner. You must be able to follow agreed guidelines and to work positively within a consistent, mutually supportive team ethos. You will be part of a team and receive supervision throughout the probationary process to ensure you have the knowledge and skills needed. As well as providing direct care and support, you will have the opportunity to act as a Key Worker supporting people to achieve their dreams and ambitions.

Recovery Support Worker Duties:

• Contributing to a 24-hour rota within our supported living services, including sleepovers,
• Delivering personal care in a dignified manner
• Developing and sustaining warm and trusting relationships with service users,
• Carrying out general administrative duties and housing management tasks.
• Operating our online system to evidence the work you undertake with people in the community
• Administering medication
• Communicating and building relationships with service users’ family, support network and involved professionals.

Although we value relevant experience of supporting people with mental health needs and learning disabilities, you do not need to have prior experience if you can demonstrate a ‘can-do approach’, person-centred values, energy and commitment. We are looking to recruit people who enjoy a challenging and rewarding job and who wish to develop through the training packages that we offer. You will have a strong work ethic and duty of care and be able to contribute to a positive team approach. Car drivers are preferred.

• Free 24/7 counselling and employee support programme,
• Competitive pay and a pension with company contribution and 28 days annual leave,
• Company paid enhanced DBS for all staff,
