The Role

The Vacancy

Interviews are being held on an on-going basis.

Bridge Street is a supported accommodation service in Shepshed that provides up to 12 months support to persons living with mental health, prior to independent living. As well as enabling people to learn about their mental health and providing therapeutic support in a psychologically informed environment, it also provides people with 8 weeks of transitional support during their move on into independent living in their own flat in the community.

We are looking for two flexible, approachable and positive thinking Support Workers to join our fantastic team.

We don't just support customers we also support you.

You will be equipped with the right values and be given training to make you highly resilient to allow you to demonstrate patience and understanding even in times of crisis. We know it's a challenging role, but we also know you will be remarkable at it.

So what are we looking for in our next star Support Worker?

Your naturally empathetic personality will shine through during key work and by being organised and caring we believe you will make a massive difference to our service users' well-being. You will encourage positive behaviour, understand and promote techniques to reduce drug and alcohol dependency.

You will be supporting with daily living skills and promoting emotional stability to increase confidence. Building good relationships with families, social workers and other professionals is key to the role.

Using your initiative and resilience, you will agree actions to be reviewed and agreed in support plans for the individuals you key work.

A part of this role will involve computer record keeping and writing detailed risk assessments, therefore basic literacy skills are essential.

We care all day, every day...

Support is all year round; so you will need to be available to work a variety of shifts including waking nights, sleep-ins, weekends and bank holidays. The shift patterns are usually 8am-3.30pm, 2.30-10pm, 10pm-7am. A full, valid driving licence is desirable.

Quote from current team member - "Working at Bridge Street enabled me to learn about mental health recovery and how to actually help people living with mental health".

All successful candidates will be required to take a numerical and literacy test prior to the interview.
