Job Description

Support Worker

Hartlepool Community Services Team

Full Time (37.5 hours per week), Permanent

Salary £18,576pa to £18,730pa rising to £19,200pa through length of service

Plus, Brilliant Benefits!

Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.

We have fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome team, following an expansion in the team. We support our brilliant customers with their wellness, homelessness, mental health, benefits appeals and generally improving their lives one day at the time. They live in the community across wider Hartlepool area.

About our team

You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements. To us we're not just a team we’re a ‘work family’.

Our manager is Dom, who's joined the team after nine years in housing. There are 14 of us in the wider team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!

You will share the office with Gill, who is our Coordinator – she is our resident Corry/EastEnders/Emmerdale expert and is passionate when it comes to making the team tick. Steph and Laura are our Support Workers who you will be closely working with – they are also the main organisers of our “Chippy Fridays”, where we ensure our local Fish and Chip shop doesn’t go out of business.

Working hours

You’ll mostly work Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!

About you

You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds. You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively.

We help change our customer’s lives for the better. You’ll play your part by assisting in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, and their needs and aspirations. You’ll work with our Senior Support Workers (Support Coordinators) and external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers. We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!

To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)

It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!

As this is a community-based role, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
