This is delivered by providing 1to1 support workers for individuals.

The successful candidate will need to communicate in a variety of different methods and be prepared to deal with challenging situations.  You will also be expected to work on your own initiative and show patience and understanding.

 

You will have a proven track record of motivating others including carrying out supervision meetings.  You will have experience of working with adults with disabilities, monitoring the care provided and identifying and resolving issues arising from the ‘day to day’ operation.
