Our Mental Health service in Whalley Range provides a holistic rehabilitation approach for individuals with complex, severe and enduring mental health needs. We are seeking warm, reliable and person-centred individuals to provide waking night support to our service users, with the desire to promote independence. You will work on your own initiative and common sense as part of a team. Although working at night, you may be required to work during the day to attend meetings and other events. Relevant experience is desirable although full training is provided.
You will work in partnership with tenants on a rota shift basis to build meaningful and satisfying lives through the provision of flexible and personalised support. You will be part of peoples support network to enhance their skills to move onto less supported accommodation. You must be able to work in a non-judgmental manner, promoting hope, empowerment and inclusion.

Although previous experience in a similar role is more advantageous, we would like to encourage the people with the right values and passion to apply and work to make a difference.
