Are you passionate about working promoting independence and enabling people to overcome barriers and to live their best lives?

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to join our team of Promoting Independence Workers. The role involves working with people in their own homes and their local communities. 

We have opportunities for Promoting Independence Workers in each of our North (Newark & Bassetlaw) and South (Broxtowe, Gedling & Rushcliffe) teams.

As a Promoting Independence worker, you will work with people of any age from 17 years upwards, and across all service areas. You will work with people for up to 12 weeks, on goals that are important to the person. This might be anything from teaching people to use public transport or social activities in the community or learning to cook. It is hugely varied and satisfying work.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with the right values and passion to join our forward-thinking team.

If you feel that you would be well suited to this type of work, we would welcome an application from you. In return, you will receive ongoing training and coaching, regular supervision, annual development appraisals, alongside the support of a motivated and friendly team. You will be provided with appropriate technology and access to work remotely.


Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full-time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
