At West Sussex we want our customers to live good, ordinary lives in the place they call home, with the people that they have grown to appreciate and enjoy.
We start by listening to the person, being curious about what they consider to be a good life and asking how we can work with them to achieve this.
You will be responsible for building trusted relationships, having conversations with people based on what matters the most to them and what they can do to enable them to lead and remain as independent for as long as possible and connecting them to the wider networks of support.
You will increase people’s self-esteem, enabling them to keep their dignity and understand their needs in the least intrusive way. You will work with them in their best interests by actively listening and respecting the diversity of the people you are working with.
We recognise that people are the experts in their own lives and communicate respectfully with them and about them. We think creatively and in challenging circumstances. We listen and do not exclude or oppress. We reflect on our practice and we are constantly learning.
If this sounds like you, then please read on...
