Creative Support is a national, fast growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. We are currently seeking highly motivated Support Workers to join our friendly team in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.

We are looking for calm, resourceful and energetic individuals who are motivated, hardworking and keen to join our team at Swanway, our independent Supported Living Service in Gateshead. Swanway houses individuals who have a learning disability and other support needs (e.g. autism, mental health support needs and physical disabilities). The service consists of 12 apartments and a shared outdoor space/gardens. As a Relief Support Worker, you will have the opportunity to support individuals with the wide range of activities that they enjoy, including going to discos, swimming and going to the cinema. The ideal candidate will have skills in positive communication and engagement, and will be able to demonstrate unconditional positive regard for the people we support. As well as providing direct care and support, you will have the opportunity to act as a Key Worker supporting people to achieve their dreams and ambitions.

Relief Support Worker Duties:

  • Provision of personal care to service users
  • Medication administration
  • Supporting individuals with activities they enjoy in and around the Gateshead area
  • Developing and sustaining warm and trusting relationships with service users
  • Carrying out general administrative duties and housing management tasks
  • You will be paid on a weekly basis

Experience of supporting people with learning disabilities is essential for our Relief Support Worker roles. You must demonstrate a ‘can-do approach’, person-centred values, energy and commitment. You will have a strong work ethic and duty of care and be able to contribute to a positive team approach.

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.

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. We will be interviewing for this role as suitable applications are received and may close this role before the closing date upon a successful candidate being appointed.
