“What does success look like to you?

If you’re good at seeing people as unique individuals with their own skills, opinions and dreams for the future; developing professional relationships with a diverse set of people; encouraging people to overcome obstacles and ensuring their voices are heard; if you are an excellent team player, but also value being trusted to work alone…

We recognise success in seeing people avoiding unnecessary admissions to hospital, being supported within their own communities, and living well in their own homes.

We’ll trust you to become an amazing member of our team, to actively listen to people, to develop personalised support plans for people with often quite complex challenges to overcome. We’ll support you by providing a comprehensive induction, regular supervision and team meetings to ensure you maximise your potential.

We’d love to hear from you if you have experience in a similar role – we value that experience. But if you haven’t, don’t be put off! We are interested in what you are like as a person, and what values you can bring. If they match ours, we are convinced that our training and ongoing support will make you into an excellent Support Practitioner.
