Contract (Full time)

Posted 18 days ago

If you have a real passion for support work and enjoy helping others, getting to know people and enabling them to manage their homes and improve their lives, you belong at Bromford.

Every single one of our customers is unique. And so are you. Being able to express yourself at work helps you connect with people and perform better at your job. Almost every choice you make here has the power to change someone’s life for the better. This is a big opportunity for you to make a real difference.

This role is based at Geraldine Court, our young person scheme in Solihull, B37 5LN but travel throughout the Solihull borough will be required. The role is available as a 6-month fixed term contract working 30 hours per week, 9-5 Monday and Wednesday - Friday. However, there is some flexibility on the days you work. The role is subject to an Enhanced and Adult Barred List DBS Check.

As a support worker you’ll split your time between working with young and vulnerable families living at Geraldine Court and supporting customers in their own homes to provide Bromford’s homeless prevention service.

You’ll deliver quality housing and support services to sustain tenancies and develop independence. You’ll help to create a customer-focused and welcoming environment, designing and providing tailored support to customers based on an assessment of needs, and adapting appropriately to suit individual customers. You will also work with local agencies to access any specialist support, and engage with customers to build positive, inclusive relationships, whilst reviewing the impact of the support and the next steps needed.

We want you to be somebody who:

  • Is well organised, comfortable in making their own decisions and a problem solver
  • Will meet the needs of customers, commissioners and the wider community, whilst ensuring that service delivery is in line with Bromford’s policies and procedures
  • Has knowledge of Universal Credit or Personal Independence Payment benefit systems.
  • Will show confidence when articulating services to customers, colleagues, commissioners and partner agencies
  • Feels that networking comes naturally to them – not only externally but internally too – and you can build relationships so people know they can go to you and trust you
  • Has a full, clean driving licence – your role will involve some travel and an expectation to work flexibly
  • Believes in our DNA and will be a great ambassador for Bromford.

If you have previous experience as a support worker, residential support worker, specialist support worker, care worker, a family or adult support worker, or something similar, we would be really happy to hear from you.

Closing date for applications Sunday 13 May with interviews taking place Thursday 17 June 2021.

If this sounds like you, you’ll feel right at home here. At Bromford we give both customers and colleagues the opportunity to realise their potential. In our team you’ll do incredible work and be rewarded for doing so. Not just in the smiling faces of the thriving communities that you help build, but in the trust, support, training, success and friendship you’ll find in our team.

If you can be bold, be honest, be you and be brilliant… you belong at Bromford. Apply now.

In addition to a competitive salary, we will offer you a fantastic benefits package. This includes; 27 days holiday (plus statutory bank holidays); a choice of defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes; trust-based flexible working, and a £500 personal allowance to spend on your choice of things like private medical cover, dental treatment and gym membership. Visit our website to see the full list.
