We have a number of exciting opportunities for Support Workers to join our services.

We are currently expanding our well regarded, established community support team in Barrow in Furness (and surrounding areas). We are seeking warm, confident and pro-active individuals to provide flexible support to people with support needs (mental health/learning disability/physical health needs) to enable individuals to develop the skills to lead independent lives. Our services are designed to give people we support more flexibility, control and choice in the kind of support they receive, often working as partners with other organisations, families and professionals. You will provide support in line with individuals’ assessed support needs and build trusting therapeutic relationships, working to encourage a positive life outlook and coping skills.

Support can vary from a couple of hours per week to up to 12 hours per day. This is very much a varied and interesting role. Working in the outreach team involves a significant amount of lone working and whilst applicants with experience are preferable, we actively encourage applications from graduates and people with life experience, as well as experienced care workers from any background seeking a fresh challenge.
The service operates 7 days per week between 7am and 10pm, 365 days a year and you will be expected to work on a rota system undertaking shift work as required. Evening and weekend work is expected (there is no night time support provision). A comprehensive range of company benefits is included. We offer great opportunities for individuals who only want to work 2 or 3 days per week or equally if you want a full time contract working 5 days per week. Car drivers are essential. We ensure our employees are paid for all travel time, with agreed millage payments in place.

What we offer…

Creative Support also offers a wide range of training courses. This will be a perfect opportunity for those who are seeking to progress in the health and social care sector as we also offer the QCF Diploma in Health and Social Care level 2 – 5.

In return we offer a wide range of benefits to ensure job satisfaction. This includes:
- Paid travel time
- Guaranteed Contracted Hours (Full or Part Time)
- Free life assurance
- Pension with company contribution
- A range of employee discounts
- Free welfare/counselling service for employees and members of their household
- Company sick pay
- Positive, experienced, supportive managers
