Since it began in 1982, Spectrum has grown to become a leading provider of specialist care for autistic adults and children. We are a charity and proud of our track record working with children and adults who have complex and challenging needs. We operate 18 residential homes, a community outreach service and a specialist education centre, all within the beautiful county of Cornwall.
We are currently looking to recruit two Positive Behavioural Support Leads (PBSL), one to be based at Rose House and the other at The Mowhay, who will assist the Registered Manager and the care support team members in developing and maintaining a high-standard of care practice by implementing and delivering person-centred care planning and ensuring that the service operates to maximise service-users’ quality of life.
To be successful in this role, you will need:
- An understanding of legislative requirements for vulnerable people, along with a sound appreciation for a person-centred approach and managing risk.
- A recognised Level 3 Health and Social Care qualification, or a commitment to work towards achieving this within your first 24 months of appointment.
- To have a broad knowledge of autism and associated conditions, or to successfully complete our Grey Matter Positive Behavioural Support Training within the first 2 months of commencing the position of PBSL within Spectrum.
- To be computer literate with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, including initiative, adaptability, confidence, tolerance and resilience.
Whilst a recognised leadership and management qualification or diploma in education and training is not essential, it would be advantageous, but what is more important, is your ability to support, develop and enable our care staff.
If you are interested in this role, then we are interested in hearing from you! To find out more, please call the home managers, Fred at Rose House on 01209 899048, or Mandie at The Mowhay on 01872 264595. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for an application form.
