BS Social Care are currently recruiting for a team leader to join a residential service offering care and support for adults with learning disabilities, dual diagnosis, complex needs and behaviours in the NEWARK area.
Based on one site, you will offer support, guidance and leadership across two individual, yet linked services.
You will join a highly regarded provider who specialises in person centred care and support for adults with a learning disability or mental health diagnosis, across residential and supported living settings nationwide.
Employed on a full time basis, this is the perfect opportunity for a skilled support worker or senior support worker who is looking to progress into a team leader role.
You will be responsible for effective assessments and care planning, promoting an environment where each client participates in social and recreational activities and maintaining a service that is safe and homely.
Shift leading, liaising with external agencies, staff recruitment and inductions, and overseeing the running of the home in the absence of the home manager, are all key duties of the team leader role.
To be considered for this exciting opportunity, you must:
* Demonstrate a proven background in a similar setting for adults with a learning disability including autism and a dual diagnosis
* Hold a minimum of NVQ 3 in health and social care (or equivalent)
* Have experience of staff supervisions and team leading
* Be flexible to work a varied shift pattern including weekends.
Your exceptional skills and experience will be rewarded with a generous hourly rate, between £9.00 to £9.30 per hour dependent on qualifications and experience, competitive annual leave allowance, on going training and development, including the opportunity to secure the care certificate.
Interviews will take place quickly, so, to avoid disappointment, please apply online today or send your CV via email today!
