Each customer may display behaviours that challenge and these could include learning disabilities, mental health issues, autism and communication differences, alongside ongoing physical health conditions.

As our team and safeguarding lead, you’ll use your experience and brilliant skills in effectively motivating and directing colleagues. You’ll ensure our exciting new LIFE support practice model (Living Independently and Feeling Enabled) is delivered in a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led way.
Our customers are all based within walking distance of North Walsham Train Station and bus stations, and there is even onsite parking for those who drive.

When joining us, you will be playing a big part in tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but for all our colleagues too. You can be yourself here because we value everything that makes you unique. Whatever your age, race, sexuality, disability, religion, or gender identity, we recognise and celebrate our differences and make Home Group a great place to work.
It is important to us that you have worked in this type of role before, preferably with people that display behaviours of concern, working with support and risk management plans. Holding a level 3 Diploma in Adult Health and Social Care or equivalent, you will have a good understanding of CQC regulations, relevant legislation or working within a CQC regulated environment.
Whilst it is your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are important to us, we also ask that you:
- Listen to customers to understand their needs
- Recognise each customer is different and adopt a flexible, personal approach
- Advocate for our customers regardless of who they are
- Understand how your role makes a difference to our customers
- Have an eye for detail
- Work in a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led way
- Apply legislation and work within policies and procedures
- Use and record information accurately and timely
- Be positive and enthusiastic to drive work forward
- Use performance information to drive improvements in service to customers
- Support others to be the best they can be
- Provide praise and feedback which help others to develop
- Take time to understand where others want to get to; help them to assess whether this is realistic
- Give others the confidence to want to try something new
When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
