STEP© worker (formerly Support worker) - Basingstoke: full time (40hrs)

The Basingstoke Foyer operates a staged accommodation model in order to foster progression routes to independence for our clients.

We are focused on empowering young people to achieve independence and providing a range of opportunities, enabling them to optimise their talents and achieve excellent outcomes.

The Step by Step team is positive, dynamic, professional and committed to empowering young people to fulfil their full potential.

STEP© Worker (formerly titled 'Support Worker')

Step by Step has evolved the role of a traditional support worker into what we call a STEP© worker (Skills, Talent, Empowerment, Progress).

We have created our own STEP© Plan to enable us to train all of our team to this industry-leading standard. Full training will be provided to all new team members.

As a STEP© worker, operating across a rolling shift pattern, you will have responsibility for ensuring that young people accessing the service receive both opportunity and advocacy and that they are able to develop their skills and talents in a manner which empowers them to go on and access employment and/or educational facilities, whilst continuing to take on more responsibilities and to ultimately achieve and maintain independence.

The role involves liaising closely with a range of internal and partner agencies to ensure positive outcomes on behalf of the client group. We believe that everyone has ability and talent - we help harness that talent and allow young people to see the potential that we knew was there all along.

Applicants should have experience of working with young people and should demonstrate both empathy and knowledge of the issues which often result in adversity. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate some creative and inspiring ways to overcome adversity. You should be able to work proactively and on your own initiative, whilst also maintaining consistency and fairness of approach within the staff team.

Successful applicants will demonstrate an awareness of Advantaged Thinking and possess a genuine asset-based approach to working with young people that nurtures talent and elicits real change and development.
