Community Support/Rehabilitation Worker (Community 10)

Fixed Term Contract – up to 12 months

35 hours per week

The role of Community Support Worker includes assessing need for advice and information, rehabilitation and training, care support and financial assistance. Our aim is to work in conjunction with statutory and voluntary agencies to help our members (service users) maximise their independence. 

We are looking for committed and resourceful individuals who will follow a rigorous case management process and adhere to safeguarding and risk management procedures, keeping a positive attitude and demonstrating a collaborative, resourceful and confidential approach. It is an autonomous role but you will be an integral member of a wider team.

The ideal applicant will have excellent organisational and communication skills, experience of using case management systems to record interventions and have a good understanding of how to maintain professional relationships with our members. Effective IT skills are essential including a good working knowledge of the MS Office suite and experience of using databases.

A rehabilitation qualification is not essential, and we would welcome applications from rehabilitation officers.  

The position is full time, but we welcome applications from people seeking flexible working opportunities and will consider part time.

The post will be home based with regular travel across the Northeast and therefore our preference is that you reside within this community or within a reasonable distance of the area.   

This post is subject to enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Closing date:  Friday 20 May 2022 

Virtual Recruitment and Selection Interview: 31 May or 1 June 2022
