Join our innovative team based in Saltdean here you can lead by example, enjoying an excellent training programme, strong career progression - and deliver outstanding support through the unique ‘Activate’ model, proven to make a measurable difference to people’s lives and your professional satisfaction.
We are looking for a Lead Support Worker to join our brand new team in Saltdean, Brighton. The LSW will be responsible for liaising between the team of 10 Support Workers and the Locality Manager so experience of leading a team is strongly desired. The new home will support an energetic young man in his twenties who has a positive outlook to life but needs support with most day to day tasks. Experience working with behaviours that can sometimes be considered challenging would be a real benefit.
This is a really good opportunity for anyone who is ambitious, vibrant and passionate about providing outstanding person centred support. As this is a new project for our organisation there is a lot of scope for personal development.
There’s a separate bedroom for Support Workers who are required to stay overnight; and you’ll be part of a team that works flexibly on a rota. The location is easily accessible by public transport and has parking available for those Support Workers who work nights.
