Do you have the commitment and values to make a real difference to the lives of people with moderate learning disabilities? Are you passionate about empowering them to improve their quality of life, whilst supporting them to maintain their independence and realise their hopes, dreams and aspirations?

Creative Support is a not-for-profit organisation which provides high quality, person-centred support to people with learning disabilities and other support needs. We support people to live their chosen lifestyle and tailor our services to suit the needs of the individuals, whilst encouraging community engagement.

This is an exciting time to join our Camden services, as we increase our presence in the borough. Creative Support is committed to your continuous professional development. As a successful candidate, you will receive a full local and corporate induction, and attain a level 3 certificate in ‘Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care’. On completion of your probationary period, you will automatically be enrolled onto the NVQ level 3 diploma in Health and Social Care. You will have access to ongoing professional development from our training offices in London and Reading, and the opportunity to discuss your training and development needs during regular supervision and appraisal meetings.

We are looking for calm, resourceful, and energetic individuals who are highly motivated, hardworking, and keen to support people with moderate learning disabilities in a proactive and holistic manner. You will have well-honed skills in positive communication and engagement, and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for all our service users. You will support people to maintain their independence whilst promoting choice and control. You will (alongside members of the person’s circle of support) empower individuals to be happy and successful in achieving their life goals and will maintain their wellbeing; mentally, physically and emotionally.

You must be willing to embrace all aspects of the role including, but not limited to, providing support with personal care and domestic tasks, and supporting individuals to access work, education and social opportunities. We value the personal skills and interests you bring to the role and to the lives of the people we support, such as, sports and outdoor pursuits, creative arts, music, and cooking to name but a few.

You will be required to work in a flexible manner, on a roster basis, which will include evenings, weekends and sleep-ins. Previous experience, whilst desirable, is not necessary – what we need most from you is gumption and a can-do attitude.

We are a passionate, inclusive and anti-racist organisation. We embrace diversity and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and cultures. As a Disability Confident Employer we welcome applications from people with a disability, and as a proud Stonewall Diversity Champion we actively encourage applications from the LGBT+ community.

We would encourage you to apply to us even if you have not yet had your COVID 19 vaccine. You will be required to have your first COVID 19 vaccine prior to your interview and your second vaccine before you start work with us. This time will be used to complete post interview recruitment checks. Applicants who are unable to receive the vaccination on medical grounds are still welcome to apply with provision of their official NHS COVID pass letter of medical exemption.

We will be interviewing for this role as suitable applications are received and may close this role before the closing date upon a successful candidate being appointed.
