Source: Talent GB

Are you looking for a career that makes a difference? Are you motivated and caring with a desire to make a positive difference to the lives of others? Then look no further, Affinity Trust has the job for you.

We have a number of fantastic opportunities for people who are highly motivated to work in a demanding and rewarding environment. You will play an integral part of our Transforming Care Programme, an exciting project funded by NHS England and developed by Choice Support. The Programme has Positive Behaviour Support at its core, where we support people to move from long term hospital stay/residential settings to live more independently.

For this vacancy we are looking for females only, "Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010".

Your Benefits

  • A 2-week paid induction programme of generic training
  • Training for specific identified needs to ensure you feel equipped and supported to enable the people we support to live independently
  • 28 days paid holiday per year (inc. bank holidays)*
  • Make a genuine difference to someone's life
  • Blue Light Card
  • £200 bonus after 3 months service, £100 after 6 months service and a further £100 bonus after 12 months service
  • Pension scheme
  • Sleep in & bank holiday payment enhancements
  • 15% overtime enhancement on hours over 37.5 per week
  • Fantastic training and development
  • Paid for DBS
  • Refer a friend scheme (earning £100 - £400 per referral)
  • *pro rata for part time staff

    About The Role

    The duties are varied, and no two days will be the same. However, as a general guide, duties may include:

  • Provide direct support to individuals who exhibit complex and challenging behaviour
  • Manage the behaviour and to enable them to participate in a wide range of therapeutic and social activities
  • Enable and support people to transition from an institutional setting such as hospital to their own home
  • Work with the Clinical Team to provide emotional support to individuals, supporting them in managing their anxieties and behaviour through coping strategies
  • Work positively with other agencies, parents, Support Workers, and other services to ensure a quality provision of care for individuals
  • Maintain appropriate records relating to good practice, health, safety and statutory requirements
  • Promote independence with daily activities, such as personal care, cooking, finance management where appropriate, and general housekeeping
  • Shift Patterns

    Shift patterns are across a 24hr rota.

    It is the nature of the service we provide that tasks and responsibilities are in many circumstances variable and unpredictable. All staff are therefore expected to work flexibly when the need arises, so that tasks that may not be covered in this job description are undertaken. These additional duties will normally be to cover unforeseen circumstances or changes in work, and they will normally be compatible with the regular type of work. Also, individuals supported may display challenging behaviours, in which case training will be provided to minimise these behaviours.

    What skills and experience do I need?

    This really is a unique career opportunity for people who have the passion and commitment to develop their skills and make a lasting positive contribution to the lives of others. You don’t need any qualifications as a full induction plus professional training will be provided, including Positive Behaviour Support training, although previous experience of working within this environment is advantageous.

    The most important thing is a caring and resilient attitude, and the ability to use positive, calm and clear communication to enhance the day to day lives of the people we support.
