Are you looking for a rewarding new job where you can make a difference every day?  Look no further!  Our fantastic #TeamTeindland in Elgin are looking for a new caring, outgoing and sociable *female colleague to join them on a part-time (20 hours per week) basis.    

​​​​​​​The current salary is £9.50 per hour, with a pay award pending of £10.02 per hour and will be backdated to 1st December 2021.

The Role

You'll become part of a friendly, fun team that supports two young ladies to live in their own shared home.  The great thing about this job is no two days are ever the same. Your main aim will be supporting both ladies with their day to day needs which involves personal care, shopping, finances, cooking, housework and medication.

With the ladies also enjoying being part of their local community, you'll also be supporting and participating in their hobbies and interests which include, swimming, going to the cinema, singing, music, arts & crafts and gardening.

About You

You don't need experience to start your career with us; we recruit on values and transferrable skills.  We will pay you for your training and will even fund your SVQ qualification too!

All we’ll need you to bring is: -

  • Honesty, reliability and trustworthiness
  • Good listening and communication skills
  • A caring attitude and approach
  • Confidence to go in the water as swimming is a regular activity
  • A positive approach to learning
  • Always seek to go above and beyond what's expected
  • Confidence in the use of computers.

Going out for drives is a popular activity so if you're a driver that would be great, but it's not a deal breaker for the right candidate.

​​​​​​​Shift Patterns

We're dedicated to providing around the clock support that is tailored to the needs of each individual, so shift patterns will include early mornings, days, evenings, weekends, public holidays and sleepovers.

Typically you will work 4 sleepover shifts each month.  Our sleepover shifts are not included in your contracted hours, so you will receive an additional payment of £76 for every sleepover you work.

Sound interesting?  What are you waiting for?  Apply today, we can't wait to hear from you!

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an interview via video on 21st December 2021.
