Closing date: 06/03/2024

Webster Court provides supported living exclusively for the over-50’s, who have an enduring mental health challenged and multiple needs. A number of our thirty-two residents have either experienced homelessness, have previously been vulnerably housed or otherwise would struggle to live independently in the community.

A typical day at Webster Court is wide and varied; one minute you could be supporting a resident with their medication, the next taking part in a group social activity or meeting with health or social care professionals. We place a huge emphasis on our residents remaining as independent as possible with their daily living tasks but we’re on hand to offer support when needed.

This can include practical tasks such as preparing a meal with a resident to encouraging them to keep their flat tidy.

We’re registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide personal care to a small number of our residents, however as we’re not a traditional care environment, this is very light touch.

Working on a shift pattern with a small team of colleagues, you will be responsible for making your own decisions in supporting our residents ensuring their safety, supporting them to maintain their mental and physical wellbeing and working as a team to deliver a person centred and high-quality service.

No one day is the same at Webster Court.

We are looking for:

  • Someone with an awareness of Trauma Informed Care and an ability to work with a Psychologically Informed approach.
  • Emotional resilience with the ability to remain calm in challenging situations.
  • Experience of supporting people who have poor mental health, dual diagnosis or who choose to lead unconventional lives.
  • Someone who has experience of providing a high standard of care and support, following digital support plans in either a domiciliary, supported living or residential care environment.
  • Observing and respecting resident’s dignity, privacy and independence in a regulated Care Quality Commission service.
  • Ability and willingness to be flexible and work unsociable hours, including evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays and sleeping nights on a rota basis.

You can expect:

  • A comprehensive training programme, whilst gaining experience in the fields of criminal justice, social care, mental health and housing law.
  • You will have a personal development programme tailored to your interests within our field of work.
  • Up to 29 days holiday and from your first day an additional ‘birthday’ holiday to be taken in your birthday month.

Due to an increase in demand on our service, we’re growing our team and ideally looking for someone to join us in a full-time capacity; we would however consider a part time applicant however to benefit fully from the role, we would need commitment to at least four 8 hour shifts per week.
