Do you think you have the personal qualities and attributes to be an Advocate?
We are committed to delivering an excellent service for our Clients, and we are seeking dedicated and proactive individuals with a proven track record of having an impact when supporting vulnerable groups, to join our fast-growing and supportive team. An awareness of the nature of learning disabilities, equality and diversity, and the ability to research complex and sensitive issues independently is essential to the post. Experience or knowledge of working with those with learning disabilities and mental health diagnoses would be preferred.
Advocates work with a wide range of service users to ensure that an individual’s unique views, wishes and preferences are expressed clearly and are central to care planning and decision making. An advocate will help service users to speak up and act for themselves and will facilitate supported decision making. This can include listening and providing information and representing someone’s views by speaking on their behalf.

We take pride in providing a workplace that fosters continuous professional development, flexible working and opportunities to grow within an inclusive and diverse environment. We are a creative and supportive team of professionals with a defined team ethos. As an organisation, we believe in unconditional positive regard for each other and for the service users for whom we work. Advent Advocacy team members benefit from weekly supervision, access to a Reflective Practice facilitator, and a bespoke training and development programme.
