Plus, brilliant benefits!

Brilliant outcomes through integrated health, housing and care. That’s when it hits home.

Be part of something brilliant at Home Group, where clinical interventions work hand in hand with daily care and support. We’re delivering brilliant long-term outcomes for people who have complex support needs through integrating health, housing and care.  

We have a fantastic opportunity for you to join our Transforming Care service in our Hull PBS team delivering specialist Positive Behavioural Support to our customers. 

Working alongside our Registered Manager, Deputy Manager, PBS Team Leaders and Support Workers, you’ll be supporting our wonderful customers. Our customers have varying levels of need with a huge amount of potential to develop their skills to be as enabled and independent as possible. 

As our PBS specialist you’ll be leading on functional behavioural assessments, plans and interventions, working collaboratively with our customers, their families, clinical and operational colleagues.  You’ll support the transition of customers into their home, some who may display behaviours that challenge, planning for their move and identifying risks. You’ll use your experience and brilliant skills to ensure all practice is evidence based and person led. You’ll provide PBS advice and coaching to your colleagues on the day to day support required, ensuring safety, promoting recovery, wellbeing and maximising independence.     

You’ll report to Dipty our Clinically Registered Manager and you’ll also be supported by Emma (and for your clinical supervision too) who is our PBS Clinical Expert.

Where you’ll work

A bit about you

You’ll be an experienced PBS specialist, with a relevant professional qualification such as Level 5 Registered Manager or Degree in Learning Disability, Mental Health, autism or other health and social care. You’ll also have a post-graduate qualification in PBS/Applied Behaviour Analysis.  You’ll be experienced in working with a wide variety of customers with complex needs including learning disabilities, mental health, autistic spectrum condition, and behaviours that concern. You’ll have a creative spark, be solutions focused and brilliant at supporting and unleashing the potential of our customers and operational teams to work with them through effective delivery of PBS. 

You must be able to drive and have access to a vehicle for work as you'll be required to travel to support customers’ transition.
