Hull City Council are currently seeking to recruit Care Support Professionals with immediate effect.  Initially all posts will be offered on a casual basis with the potential to secure a permanent contract.

Support Assistants with the Supporting Independence Team provide care and support to adults living in their own homes. The aim of our service is to enable individuals to remain as independent as possible with minimum long-term support, in line with the Council’s motto, "a life not a service".

Tasks that a Support Assistant is required to undertake are many and varied, including support with personal care, medication administration, diet and nutrition and activities of daily living. As no one individual is the same, your day will vary in terms of your duties. The golden thread throughout is to safeguard the vulnerable adults in our community that we support.

We are a large team covering the entire city of Hull so you will be expected to work across the city. As we strive to improve the quality of life for a vast number of individuals and their families, you will need to demonstrate flexibility and reliability and treat everyone with dignity and respect.

The postholder is not required to hold a qualification on appointment to the post but will be required to achieve a Care Certificate as well as NVQ2 in Health and Social Care within two years of appointment.

You will receive mandatory and statutory training as part of your induction, and this will continue throughout your employment with numerous learning and development opportunities being made available to you over time.

If you are a caring, motivated, positive and honest individual, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to join an already established team of professionals with many years of experience of providing personalised care and support.

Further information: A Personal Assistant (PA) is required to support a 9year old boy in the HU5 area of Hull.
The PA will be required to work flexibly to assist and support this boy to access social activities in the local community and to increase his independence skills.
He enjoys biking, skateboarding, scootering, going to the park or for an ice cream. He also loves lorries and likes to go out lorry spotting. Currently, due to his anxiety, he usually won't go out with other adults unless mum or dad are there, but this is something the family hope to build up to him being able to do.  Local parks/skateparks or scootering/biking round the block would be outings we hope he could engage in with a PA.  Possibly lorry spotting, depending on circumstances.
He does not need support with personal care.  Keeping him engaged in his interests and often just having 1 to 1 adult attention helps to keep him emotionally regulated. If he starts to become emotionally dysregulated, he will need support to regulate his emotions and behaviour and to keep himself safe.  If he becomes emotionally dysregulated his behaviour may be challenging, but his parents will guide the successful applicant in how to approach this behaviour.
The PA will need to be patient and understanding of this boy’s needs.  Experience of working with looked after/previously looked after children and knowledge/experience of attachment difficulties, developmental trauma, PDA/ASD, ADHD, would be useful, but is not essential.
Applicants should have a genuine interest in working with young disabled people, be honest and trustworthy, and have a confident nature with the ability to remain calm.  Applicants will also be able to demonstrate warmth, compassion and unconditional positive regard for disabled people.
The successful applicant will be prepared to have a DBS check.
