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

We are recruiting Relief Support Workers to join a newly established team of staff supporting people with learning disabilities and complex needs to enjoy an excellent quality of life in our residential care homes.

We offer an empowering model of support which enables people to lead fulfilling and valued lives, to 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.

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, carers and friends.

Relevant experience of supporting people with a learning disability or autism is essential as is a 'can-do approach', person-centred values, energy and commitment. You will need good verbal and written communication skills and the ability to develop good quality support plans. You will have a strong work ethic and duty of care and be able to contribute to a positive, team approach.

You must enjoy good health and be able to carry out all expected care and daily living tasks.

The services are located in Bedford town and neighbouring villages.
