Outward Housing supports people who are known to present behaviours of concern by using the Positive Behaviour Support model because PBS puts the person first.
PBS is pro-active and the main focus is getting the environment right for the individual, rather than responses/reactions following challenging behaviour and on better supporting the person through improving their quality of life.
PBS approaches are based on a set of values of enabling inclusion, choice, participation and equality of opportunity. PBS is about working in partnership with the person, their family, staff and professionals.
Existing knowledge/experience in following the PBS approach would be beneficial but not essential as we do provide extensive training. A shared value of understanding and supporting a person’s behaviour and finding ways to work with them to improve this is essential.
We value everything our staff do for the people we support, so we provide a great benefits package:
• Up to 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time)
• Computing Scheme
• Cycle-to-Work Scheme
• Health Assured – Employee Assistance Programme
• Blue Light Card
• Eye care Vouchers
• Flu Jab Reimbursement
• Pension Scheme
Outward is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of adults at risk and expects all staff to share this commitment. If the post you apply for involves working with or having access to adults at risk and/or their records, we will require an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Services for successful candidates. This will be fully subsided by Outward.
The closing date for all applications is 23:59 pm on 3rd July 2022
Interviews will be held on Week commencing 10th July 2022
We are committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
