We are recruiting a new staff team and seeking highly motivated, proactive and professional Relief Support Workers who are committed to assist in the service delivery of a new specialist supported living service in Warrington. The service has been developed to accommodate individuals who have a learning disability and/or autism and a range of needs, including mental health needs and behaviours which may challenge.

Are you a respectful, warm, highly motivated person with person-centred values who can empower and support people to transform their lives? Are you creative, proactive and willing to go the extra mile to enable people to achieve their aspirations?

This is a fantastic career development opportunity as you will have the opportunity to be part of a new service providing effective support for service users in transitions from a variety of settings. We will offer an empowering model of support which enables people to lead fulfilling and valued lives, maintain their tenancies, participate in their local community, develop independent living skills and achieve their personal goals and desired outcomes. 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 goals. Many of the service users will be young adults and this may be their first experience of living in their own home, with your support and mentoring they will be able to establish a full and positive lifestyle.

This rewarding role will require flexibility across the week and your working time will involve working shifts which include evenings, weekends and bank holidays. A high level of motivation and personal commitment is required along with demonstrable skills in engaging service users in planning their support. You will also be expected to work professionally alongside Care Managers and health professionals and to communicate positively with families and carers.

You will need good verbal and written communication skills and the ability to develop good quality support plans. You will have previous experience of working with people who are experiencing mental health and complex needs, either in a community, residential or inpatient setting. You will have a strong work ethic and duty of care and be able to contribute to a positive, team approach.
