New Vacancy - Live Well Response Worker

Hours: 37 per week between Monday and Friday

The Health Improvement Service have an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and skilled individual to join our successful team as a Live Well Response Worker. You will be working alongside a committed team of community based professionals, all with the passion and expertise to deliver a client focused service; helping to improve lives and promote independence.

Your role will be about providing practical and emotional support to adults living in Swindon, who have been identified as needing additional support. You will assist them to regain and maintain skills in order to maximise their resilience and independence, allowing them to enjoy the best quality of life.

You will be responsible for managing a caseload and will work closely with colleagues to ensure the most suitable support is in place and reviewed accordingly. You will receive ongoing supervision and training as well as peer support from team members.

You will have excellent communication skills and be confident working on a one to one basis with vulnerable individuals. You will be qualified to at least level 2 in Health and Social Care or equivalent and will have a good track of working in this field. Your empathetic and solution focused approach will give you a real opportunity to impact positively on the lives of local people.

This role has been created as part of an exciting collaboration between Adult Social Care and Public Health. The role is permanent and part of an ongoing partnership to ensure people are receiving the right level of support at the right time. 

Applicants must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer-facing role) and a DBS disclosure will be required.

As part of the COVID19 strategy this role will be subject to regular covid19 testing, as per the guidance set out by the Department of Health and Social Care.

From 11 November 2021, new government legislation requires people working in a Care Quality Commission-registered care home for adults, to have had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to enter the premises (unless they have a medical exemption).

We guarantee to interview disabled applicants who meet the minimum requirements of the role profile. On submission of your CV & supporting statement, please advise if you consider yourself to have a disability and state any particular assistance or facilities you may require in attending an interview.

The Equality Act 2010 defines that a person is disabled if they have a physical or mental impairment, which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities, which would include things like using a telephone, reading a book or using public transport.
