Applicants should have experience or knowledge of adults/children with learning disabilities, complex health needs and those with additional needs. Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate their commitment to strengths based practice for adults with a Learning Disability.

Successful applicants will be effective communicators with the ability to work as part of a team, be effective at building relationships and engage with disabled adults, young people, care providers and parents/carers. Successful applicants must be able to produce concise, articulate and accurate written work and follow departmental procedures, whilst working in a busy environment.

Successful applicants will receive regular supervision, will benefit from good peer support, will have opportunities to develop a good work/life balance through the use of the flexi system, will have access to an excellent range of in house and bespoke training and joint training with health colleagues..
