Social Care Worker – Clifton House

Salary:£16,665 per annum
Hours:37.5 per week
Location:Dorset, BH5 1HW

The Role

Together is an amazing place to work. And it’s not just because we’re one of the UK’s oldest and most respected mental health charities. It’s because we put the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do – supporting and enabling them to take control of their lives and make a positive contribution to the community.

Clifton House is a dynamic residential service in Bournemouth. We work with people on their journey towards wellbeing, recovery and independence. The individual is at the centre of what we do and we look to encourage and empower them during their time at Clifton House.

As a Social Care Worker you’ll be working alongside people with mental health issues on their journey towards greater wellbeing & independence.

As such, you will be involved in assessing the needs of service users and also be responsible for co-ordinating the support provided by the team. Because of the nature of our work, you will be expected to work early/late shifts, weekends and sleep-in duties for which a sleep-in allowance is paid in addition to salary.

Amiable and enthusiastic, you are committed to providing a highly professional service and enjoy relating to individuals. Whilst experience in a similar role is desirable, it‘s not essential as training is given to develop your skills.

In return we offer a friendly and dynamic working environment, competitive pay and a great range of benefits.

This is a 6 month fixed-term contract.

We have a firm commitment to encouraging fairness and diversity in our work force and we welcome applications from disabled people and those from BME backgrounds.
