Post: Support Worker – Mental Health Services

Location:  The Willow Project - Swansea

Working Hours: 35 per week

Salary: £16,500 per annum

Caer Las is currently recruiting for a full-time support worker to work in our CSSIW Domiciliary Care scheme in Swansea. The project supports 7 tenants with mental health issues to move to independent living within the community. The role of the Support Worker is to encourage and support Service Users to develop the skills and confidence they need to be able to live as independently as possible, doing ‘with’ and not ‘for’.

The project operates on a 24/7 basis and, as a result, the post is shift based and involves working anti-social hours, including nights and weekends.

We are an agency led by the needs of those we are constituted to serve, maintaining a positive, future focus, led by our ethos and values, listed below:

·         Empowerment - We believe that everyone has the strength to help themselves.

·         Respect - We treat people with dignity and without judgement.

·         Fairness - We are committed to equity in everything we do.

·         Commitment - We are driven by the challenge of always putting our clients at the centre of everything we do.

It is very important to consider the extent to which you are prepared to sign up to these values, because they are at the heart of what we believe, how we work, our culture, and most importantly how we view clients of our services.

Please note: those who have applied for this post within the last 6 months will not be considered in this instance.
