This role

You will be providing support to adults with learning disabilities within their own home environments. Our service units provide a secure and safe home to our customers and your role is key to their wellbeing. Customers need support with their daily living skills; your role will involve positively enhancing their skills to enable our customers to lead a healthy, independent lifestyle.

Many of our customers have moderate needs and thrive through being involved in social activities, which you will be involved with to ensure the customers maintain as much independence as is possible.

You will need to be prepared to be flexible and work a 24 / 7 rota including weekends and bank holidays. This is a part time position, working 30 hours per week.

What you'll need to succeed

Working in an experienced team, this is an ideal opportunity for someone that wishes to start a career in adult social care, or alternatively for someone to focus on supporting adults with learning disabilities.

The key is the ability to demonstrate a passion to deliver excellent service to vulnerable adults in a dignified manner. You will need to be able to work independently and have the confidence to deal with customers with compassion and to promote social interaction as much as is possible.

To meet our commitment to providing safe, high quality services to our customers we will complete an enhanced background check with the Disclosure and Barring service, which will include a check of the Adult Barred list, once an offer of employment is made. A new check will be completed every three years.

About Us

Our organisation was built on a simple mission – to give people a safe, secure, and affordable home. That is as true today as it was in the 1950’s, when our founder Molly Huggins established on organisation to provide homes for Windrush migrants in London. Our core purpose I that “everyone should have a home and the chance to live well” To fulfil this vision, we work with partners to make our neighbourhoods – new and old - sustainable and vibrant places, where our customers want to live. We put people at the heart of everything we do and to guide is in every decision we make. Through managing more than 57,000 households we work at a scale that means our actions to achieve this have real impact.

We firmly believe that by serving people better every day, we will support a healthier, better cared for, and more prosperous society in the future. Like our founders before us, we will leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Our colleagues are crucial to our success in achieving this. Therefore, we are committed to investing in colleagues and creating the opportunity for them to develop. Our working environment has been designed to be one that brings out the very best in people.
