Vacancy Details

Are you looking for a diverse role that is fun, stimulating and rewarding every day?
Creative Support is looking for a warm, reliable and proactive Relief Support Worker to join our friendly staff team in Blackpool, Lancashire. Here we provide quality care and support to two service users with learning disabilities and epilepsy.

At our vibrant services no two days will be the same as you support our service users who are in employment and like to volunteer. Both service users like to get out and about and love football and watching TV. We are looking for someone with a great sense of humour and who is looking to join a friendly and energetic staff team.

Your role will include:

• Encouraging service users to engage in a range of exciting social activities both within and outside their homes,
• Developing warm and trusting relationships with service users and their families enabling them to enjoy their time at the service to the fullest.

Experience in providing care and support to people with learning disabilities is essential for our Relief Support Worker roles.

As a Creative Support Bank Staff member you will have access to our free app which allows you to pick up shifts in any area of the country and provides information on the service and shifts, including directions.

You will be paid on a weekly basis.

We are a passionate, inclusive and anti-racist organisation. We embrace diversity and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and cultures. As a Disability Confident Employer we welcome applications from people with a disability, and as a proud Stonewall Diversity Champion we actively encourage applications from the LGBT+ community.

We would encourage you to apply to us even if you have not yet had your COVID 19 vaccine. You will be required to have your first COVID 19 vaccine prior to your interview and your second vaccine before you start work with us. This time will be used to complete post interview recruitment checks. Applicants who are unable to receive the vaccination on medical grounds are still welcome to apply with provision of their official NHS COVID pass letter of medical exemption.

We would encourage candidates to apply to this post as soon as possible. If we receive a large number of applications we may process these prior to the deadline.
