Over 11 years, my client has created a unique Social Care model based on bridging specialist areas of social care and healthcare. These Support Workers are to be focused around working with individuals when they have initially moved into one of our Micro Communities. They may in be working the one home anywhere from 6 months up to 18 months / two years and then move to other sites. They will work around helping and supporting individuals who have a learning disability, a mental and physicla health issue or more complex psychological issues, particularly those ready to exit semi secure placements, for reintegration back into a social care environment.

Of necessity, the delivery of care and support must be very professionally delivered: what is expected must happen when it is expected to happen; delivery must be in the predetermined manner that is expected and by the person/persons expected to deliver it. Care and support, that meets this criteria, results in a reduction of individual's inherently high levels of anxiety, and over time, it increases their tolerance towards the unexpected, other people and changes in their environment.

Duties will be worked initially at one of their micro communities in Dorrington, Lincoln, Lincolnshire. They may then later be involved working in some of their other specialist residential homes, to promote best practice and upgrade staff team capabilities. The role will require the use of own vehicle and the holding of a current driving licence due to locations. Duties will be worked between Monday and Sunday and normally within the hours of 7.00 a.m. and 10.00 p.m. There may also be a requirement for sleep-ins or night shifts, if required.

Potential candidates need to have a Level 3 in Health and Social Care or equivalent qualification and recent experience in a similar role. Qualifications within Mental Health will also be of benefit. All posts will be subject to a satisfactory Enhanced DBS Disclosure. Costs for this will be met by the employer.

HFHC Midlands is committed to being an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all ages and backgrounds.
