Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home
 
At Home Group it’s critical we continue to deliver services for our customers during the COVID-19 outbreak, and our awesome colleagues are at the very heart of making that happen. We need Brilliant People like you to join us (and not just during this challenging time). We are doing things a little differently at the moment, so to keep you, our customers and ourselves safe we’ll engage with you digitally where possible
 
Come and join our brilliant Central Resource Team! We’re looking for enthusiastic and caring Supported Workers to join our team where you’ll provide support to services across Teesside, Durham and Sunderland. You’ll join our team of support colleagues, who are led by Lindsay who has worked for Home Group since 2009 when she started as a volunteer here. Lindsay took full advantage of all the training and experience that the company has to offer to rise to her current position as Senior Client Service Manager. 
 
The team has been developed to backfill annual leave for colleagues in all of our supported accommodation and community-based services across the area. Our services provide support to customers with housing needs or homelessness, learning disabilities, mental health issues, young people and those with complex needs. You will need to be flexible and able to turn your hand to anything.
 
We help change our customer’s lives for the better. You’ll play your part by assisting in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, and their needs and aspirations. You’ll work with our Support Coordinators and external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers. We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!
  
About our team
You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements.  To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’.
 
Working hours 
You’ll work on a rota basis between the hours of 7:30 am and 

10:00 pm and take your turn working days, evenings, weekends and bank holidays. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!
  
About you
You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds. You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively.
 
To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)
 
It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!
  
As this role involves travelling to services across the area, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use! 

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
