About the role: 
Hamptons are delighted to be supporting our client, a well-known care provider who is on the lookout for Senior Support Workers based in Meldreth.

The service is currently rated outstanding with CQC and so we are looking for passionate, experienced and motivated candidates who are looking to support the team with maintaining this standard.

The service offers a supportive living and learning environment for young adults with severe and profound learning difficulties and complex health needs. With specialist facilities and a focus on promoting independence, we support each of our young people through the transition from education into adulthood.
Your role will be to provide support to the Team Leaders and Care Managers in managing, motivating and coaching a team of support workers to maintain a stable, happy and caring environment that puts the health, safety and welfare of our young people first.
You’ll provide appropriate physical and emotional support to the young people through the work of the care team within a residential environment and with off-site activities. 
As our shift leader you’ll be expected to support the induction of new team members and their continued mentoring and development towards QCF and other mandatory training.
You’ll also be expected to take an active role in ensuring that activities are completed, and effectively delegated and day-to-day implementation of young people’s individual program plans are carried out efficiently with adequate cover available at all times.
This is very much a hands-on role where you will work directly with our young people and will provide appropriate personal care and emotional support to those using our services.
