Job Opportunities - Current Vacancies

We’re delighted that you’re taking a look at the possibility of working with the Frances Taylor Foundation! 

If you are successful, you’ll be in good company – see what some of our current staff say about working for us

Our current staff vacancies are listed below. Most have a closing date, and often this is quite strict – but if you’ve just missed it, please call for advice.

We need you please to fill in our job application form – this means that we get the same range of information from each candidate, and we ask you to confirm various statements on the declaration page. We cannot accept applications by CV only.

Once you have completed the application form please e-mail it (or print it and post it) in line with the instructions listed for the vacancy concerned. 

Each job has a job description which is about the role, and a person specification which is about the person we are looking for. Please read these carefully. The application form has space for a supporting statement – this is your chance to sell yourself and to explain how you meet the requirements set out in the person specification. You must complete the form yourself, in your own words. 

Most of our jobs involve regular work with people who the law regards as “vulnerable adults”. We therefore require you to undergo an enhanced disclosure process with the Disclosure and Barring Service [DBS]. This means that convictions which might be regarded as spent for other purposes, must still be declared – unless they are “protected” and therefore filtered out in the DBS checking process: see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dbs-filtering-guidance/dbs-filtering-guide#what-pnc-information-will-be-filtered-from-inclusion-on-a-dbs-certificate. We will ask you to apply for a DBS enhanced disclosure if we make you a conditional offer of employment, and at the same time we are also required by law to ask you to provide evidence that you have the right to work in the UK. 

The Frances Taylor Foundation is committed to Equal Opportunities and employment opportunities are open to all.

CURRENT VACANCIES

SUPPORT WORKERS – EXTRA CARE SUPPORTED LIVING

(Full time and part time hours available)

Based in Brighton and Hove

Salary Range £17,116 - 17,330pa depending upon experience and qualifications and subject to performance and qualifications based on a 37.5 hour per week contract.

The Frances Taylor Foundation [FTF] offers a wide range of social care and support for people with learning disabilities, and for older people. Our services include community support, shared supported living, activity resource centres, and residential and nursing care homes. They are based in Greater London, Brighton and Hove, Liverpool and Merseyside.

FTF will be providing support and personal care to 15 people with learning disabilities and a range of other support and care needs, who live in a converted block of 7 flats in Hove and a new block of 3 flats for younger people transitioning to adult services on the same site in Hove which opened April 2017.

The ethos of Extra Care Supported Living is to promote maximum independence and community involvement, challenging people to develop new skills and confidence. Alongside this there is also a recognition that for some people, over time, age may bring increased needs for support and care, and that, as far as it is possible to achieve, people should not have to move from their settled supported living accommodation due to increased needs.

We are looking for someone who can:

  • Demonstrate experience in care and support services
  • Work as part of a team, contributing to meetings, supervision, appraisals etc.
  • Inspire person centred working and ensure that people supported are able to lead life to the full
  • Plan for the support and care offered
  • Communicate effectively with all
  • Availability to work flexibly – this position will require working evenings, weekends and sleep ins as part of the rota.

Our Vision – that people live life to the full with their dignity respected, independence supported and uniqueness valued - runs throughout our activities and is part of a thread running back 140 years to the foundation of our organisation by Frances Taylor. The name of the Frances Taylor Foundation has been used since 1994 for the social care services of the organisation she founded as the Poor Servants of the Mother of God, now a registered charity. Our services, and our employment opportunities, are open to people of any faith or none, and we are proud of the diversity and inclusiveness of the Frances Taylor Foundation.
