Job Title: Outreach Support Worker, Nil Hours Contract

Location: Leeds

Salary:  £8.89 Per hour + holiday pay

Hours: Nil Hours

SignHealth are a passionate and unique Deaf led charity, committed to creating a future where there are no barriers to good health and well-being for Deaf people. 

Do you have the ability to communicate in British Sign Language?

Do you have knowledge of the deaf community and mental health issues?

Do you have an NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care or the care certificate?

Here at SignHealth we are currently recruiting for people to join our Bank team (Nil hours) in taking on the exciting challenge of providing high quality health and social care support to Deaf individuals, many of whom who have mental health conditions.

This is an exciting role with the potential to turn permanent in either our Registered Care home in Woodhouse, or in our exciting new service which will be opening within the Headingley and Hyde Park area of Leeds in 2021.

We are looking for an independent, dynamic, compassionate and hardworking individual who is able to support individuals who are living in our community to help them become as independent as possible.

As a Support Worker you will undertake a range of tasks which include working closely with our clients developing supportive relationships, supporting clients in independent skills, emotional support, developing personalised plans and ensuring a professional service is maintained.

You will liaise with statutory authorities to fully access new referrals and review, social workers and other professionals. The work you will carry out is interesting, challenging and rewarding.

Due to the nature of this position you will need to have a minimum of level 2 British Sign Language, understand the importance of sensitive data and storing data in line with GDPR regulations, care regulations and the CQC.

If you have knowledge of safeguarding, working with young people, adults at risk or adults in crisis under your belt this would be helpful too– but not essential. 

If this sounds like a position you would be interested in, we would love to hear from you. Applications are strongly welcome from people who can use British Sign Language.

To apply, please contact Lyndsey Sunter at lsunter@signhealth.org.uk with your CV and Supporting Statement.
