Do you have the desire to help change lives and an interest in mental health?
Response provides a range of support to people that experience severe and enduring mental health needs, and we are looking for two Senior Support Workers to join the Acacia project. The Acacia project is for those with complex mental health needs who find themselves returning to the Adult Homeless Pathway, despite attempts to move forward. We are now looking to recruit two full time Senior Support Workers (available to start in June) who can assist with the day-to-day recovery of the Acacia clients and encourage them to live independently.
Our main priority for these roles is to find people that can live our values every day. It is essential that you have experience and understanding of complex trauma and personality disorders as well as basic drug awareness. Experience within a homeless, care and mental health setting is desirable, qualifications are advantageous, however, we have a Learning & Development team who are happy to support you and your personal development and work to progress your career with us!
Above all, we are looking for people that share our values below and want to make a real difference to people’s lives:
Caring – Our residents are the heart and soul of all that we do, we provide person-centred care that enables residents to live a life worth living. We believe that differences should be celebrated, and each resident’s uniqueness enhances not only our community, but also the support we provide.
Safe – Honest and open relationships help to make all of our residents feel safe, and we provide a safe place for recovery for as long as a resident may require.
Creative – Continuous learning from one another is key. When working with a resident at their own pace there is/ are many ways to get creative with how they are supported.
Aspirational – Recovery is focused on what a resident can do, not what they can’t.
The duties within any role vary from day to day. Our service users are individuals and they all deserve to be treated as such. Some of the core duties within the role will include: supporting and encourage clients to follow Harm Reduction techniques around their use of controlled substances; managing challenging situations; raising safe guarding concerns; recording information and passing on information where required; building and maintaining positive relationships with service users, relatives, carers, professionals and the community. We are looking for someone who has experience working with people with dual diagnosis and homelessness and is also comfortable lone working.
You will be required to work 37 hours per week across equally distributed shift, Monday-Friday. Salaries vary depending on the role and experiences.
