Rutland is one of the best places in the country to live, learn, work, play and visit. We may be the smallest Unitary Authority in England, but we can offer fantastic opportunities to make a real difference to the lives of the residents in our local community. This is your chance to become part of a great team, delivering great services throughout the County.
Do you want to be part of a forward thinking, dedicated team who keep the individual needs of each of our service users at the heart of everything we do?
If you have a real understanding of, and commitment to, personalised support for adults with complex needs, then this could be the role for you. Working predominantly within the MiCare set up supporting a wide range of service users, you will also have the opportunity to work in both supported living and day opportunities to broaden your skills. Some evening and weekend work is required to meet the needs of the Community Support Service. Due to the nature of the role, some elements of physical work such as moving and handling and delivering personal care will be required.
A high level of motivation, enthusiasm, flexibility and a positive attitude are key qualities for this post. In return, we can offer you a comprehensive induction and a tailored training plan, with support to undertake the QCF Diploma and Level 2 Health and Social Care qualifications if you do not already hold these.
The successful applicant for this post will be subject to an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The cost of this will be met by Rutland Council.
We act as ‘One Council’ in all we do, with each of us working together in the most effective way to meet the needs of our customers every day – if you share this ethos then we very much want to hear from you.
