Support Assistant – Bank

Corner House, Mansfield

£8.28 per hour (rising to £8.72 after 12 months, subject to satisfactory performance)

Hours as and when required – to include days, evenings, weekends and public holidays

We are seeking a Care and Support Assistant to make a real difference to the lives of our residents. Corner House Floating support is based at the newly refurbished Care Home near to Mansfield town centre, providing support and enablement for adults aged 18 or over with learning disabilities in the Mansfield and Ashfield areas. If you want to make positive impact to people’s lives, this is a rewarding opportunity to come and work within an established and experienced team.

The role of Support Assistant will include:

  • Providing a high quality hands-on person centred care and support service which enables and empowers our clients
  • Ensuring that clients are supported by developing their daily living skills such as cooking, cleaning, shopping and being part of their community
  • Working with colleagues and partner agencies to achieve the best outcome for our clients

Skills and experiences:

  • NVQ level 2 or 3 in Health and Social Care is mandatory
  • Travel is a requirement of the role; therefore a full, current driving licence and access to your own vehicle is desirable
  • Experience of working with vulnerable people is desirable, however candidates with enthusiasm, a real passion for the role and a willingness to learn are encouraged to apply as we are committed to delivering a tailored training programme
  • Initiative and assertiveness will also be key to your success, as you will be required to source innovative solutions to problems that allow independence to be maximised
  • Excellent interpersonal, organisational, listening and time management skills, allowing you to form positive relationships with people

Why work for us?

We support vulnerable people to live as independently as possible, by building their confidence and skills to realise their potential.

We are a national organisation but we think locally. We support people through supported housing, move-on accommodation, CQC registered services and floating support. We specialise in services for young people, homeless families and individuals, people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and people with mental health needs.

Ready to join us?

As part of our commitment to making Sanctuary a great place to work, we offer a comprehensive reward and benefits package appropriate for the role that you do, including:

  • Health and well-being plans
  • A variety of online discounts and rewards from major retailers
  • A wide range of learning and development opportunities
