Are you enthusiastic? Are you able to use your own initiative? Can you communicate clearly and do you listen effectively? Are you able to encourage and
support people to achieve their goals? If so we need you to help us develop quality services for people with learning disabilities in Bromsgrove.
We are recruiting a Care Assistant to help support adults with complex needs and learning disabilities, to further develop their day opportunities and reach their full potential and maintain their skills. Based at Bromsgrove Resource Centre, you will be supporting people in activities such as Swimming/ Hydrotherapy, Physiotherapy, cooking, music sessions, aromatherapy as well as helping people to gain skills to become more confident and independent.
You will need to be committed to supporting people in making real choices about their everyday lives and help enable people to access opportunities in their local community. Previous experience of working with people with learning disabilities would be an advantage, however having an understanding of the needs of people
with learning disabilities is essential. Training will be given to enable you to assist where necessary with personal care for people and to support those
who have more complex needs.
