Are you looking for night-time work? Could you support people with learning disabilities when they are wakeful during the night? We love what we do and are recognised as an award winning charity for our passion and dedication. Due to growth, we are now expanding our services in Milton Keynes and seek a Waking Nights Support Worker to join us in this brand new venture from the start.

Mark* is a young man with autism and complex needs. And this is a hugely exciting time for him because he is leaving specialist residential education and moving into a new home in Milton Keynes. This is a great opportunity to join us from the start! You will get to know Mark and be able to support him as he settles into his new home in Milton Keynes. It may be a scary as well as exciting time for Mark so it's important for him to become familiar with you and the team so you're able to provide the best emotional reassurance possible while he transitions. A little more about Mark: He is 18 years old, and has a wide variety of interests. He loves watching movies, playing on his X-box and listening to music. Mark is also into his sport: particularly Formula 1 and football, he is an avid Chelsea FC supporter, so if you're a racing fanatic or a fellow football fan, you'll get on fine! Of course, our day and evening Support Workers will be supporting Mark with all of the above activities. As a Waking Nights Support Worker, you'll be available when Mark is wakeful at night checking at regular intervals to ensure he is comfortable and getting a good night's sleep ready for the next day. You will need to provide support with intimate care or medication. This is an important role to make sure he feels safe and emotionally reassured at all times and not vulnerable during the night.

Could you combine a focus on quality and legislative knowledge with the softer skills of coaching people to improve? Perhaps you're a Social Care manager looking for a better work life balance. Or a Health and Safety specialist wanting to have a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable people. You'll work with us to make sure we are supporting adults with learning disabilities in the best way possible.

 

You'll work alongside operational colleagues, carrying out a range of audits in services, making objective judgements on audit findings, and compiling reports and collaborative action plans from the results. You'll build relationships with colleagues, people we support, their families and other stakeholders over a wide geographical area, involving substantial travel across the South East. Although the job is primarily weekdays, some flexibility is required outside these times in order to build constructive relationships with staff working different shift patterns, and to understand any issues involved. You will most likely be based at our head office in Milton Keynes, but if you live elsewhere, we can discuss basing you at the regional office nearest to your home.

About you:

You must have worked at management level with people who have a learning disability or autism. It would be great if this includes experience of advocacy and co-production. You'll need knowledge of relevant statutory legislation, for example Safeguarding Adults, the Care Act, Health and Safety and Data Protection.

 

You'll also need excellent technical skills in Word and Excel. You'll have the ability to identify and address training and development needs, both for yourself and others. It's essential that you are a driver with your own transport, which will be insured for business use.

Are you an experienced Health & Safety professional? Are you looking for a varied, "hands-on" role? Then come and join a national charity supporting people with learning disabilities! Reporting to the Health and Safety Manager, you will assist with delivering technical advice and support to operational colleagues around the business. You'll be someone who can translate legal requirements into practical solutions, and who can mentor managers, helping them understand how statutory changes affect them.

 

A key part of your role will be to collate and analyse data and information both for individual incidents and for our regular reporting to the senior management team. You'll write clear reports that are easy to understand but don't skimp on the details. You'll undertake accident investigations, keeping things calm and factual and focusing on how to learn for the future.

 

You will also carry out audits and help to deliver training courses. This is a full-time role, Monday to Friday, with some flexibility needed. Ideally, you'll be based at our head office in Milton Keynes, but we could accommodate someone based at one of our regional offices around the country. You will travel widely across the organisation, with occasional overnight stays.

About you:

You'll have practical experience of Health and Safety, ideally gained in a social care, education or social housing environment. You'll understand the ways in which relevant legislation affects vulnerable people. It would be helpful if you've worked in regulatory environments including CQC, CIW and Ofsted.

 

You'll be proficient in the use of MS Office, especially Excel, and in the use of online databases. Ideally, you will have a relevant qualification such as NEBOSH Certificate or Diploma, but if you have the right experience we would be prepared to support you to become qualified. You must be a driver with your own transport, as you will travel to our locations around the country.
