Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.

Do you want a job where you can really make a difference to people’s lives? Read on, we've got a fabulous opportunity to join our awesome service, Copeland Move on.

We help our customers who have complex needs to build the skills to enable them to live independently within the community. We support our customers who have experienced homelessness, drug or alcohol addictions and many who also have mental health conditions. 

Some of our customers live in our ‘Hub’ which has 24 en-suite bedrooms with communal living facilities and on-site support. Our other customers live within the community in their own flat and we provide floating support to help them sustain their tenancy.

You’ll deliver support based on our customers personal support plans, needs and aspirations. Supported by our Senior Support Workers, you'll work together alongside external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers.

Be yourself at Home

We?recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work!

About you

You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives.

Ideally, you’ve got some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans and working collaboratively.

You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds.

To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you can use technology to keep clear records.

It would be amazing if you have had a job in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are really important!

Our customers live and are based in and around Whitehaven. So, you'll need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a vehicle, insured for business purposes. We’ll pay your expenses for your mileage.

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.

Working hours

You’ll work on a rota basis, covering the hours of 8 am to 8 pm and we all take our turn working weekends and bank holidays.

The great news is that we can offer some flexibility on shifts; so if later shifts work better for you, or weekdays, or you may prefer weekends only, we'd love to chat to you more at interview about what we can offer!

About our team

You’ll work in our fabulous new team and report to Michael our Manager who has been in post for 6 weeks. Once we are fully recruited, there will be 8 colleagues in the team.

You'll get a fantastic induction and loads of support. There’s lots of opportunities for training and progression for when you are ready for your next step or to develop even further in your current role.
