Independent Living Advisor
Are you looking for more than just a job? This is a fantastic opportunity to join our team that is dedicated to enabling people, who use social care support, to have full choice and control over the way in which they live their lives.
In this role you will be providing essential information, advice and support to individuals from diverse backgrounds. You will work with clients to empower them to take control of the support they need by using Direct Payments, employing their own staff and accessing activities or services. You will ensure that individuals have the right information to make informed choices and will help them to set up and manage their chosen support.
You will have excellent communication, interpersonal and IT skills and the ability to work as part of a team.
Experience of budgeting and recruitment are essential for this role.
Experience of working in social care is not essential as training will be provided, however a “can do” attitude, a commitment to a person-centred approach and willingness to learn is a must. Being part of a small team there is a lot of opportunity for you to develop and learn new skills. We encourage individuals from different career backgrounds to apply
Closing date for applications is noon 8th October. We are interviewing on Tuesday 16th October
