Time to make that change and start a career that you care about!!

We are recruiting for a caring, compassionate and motivated individual who can think on their feet to join our team on a 30 hour per week, permanent basis.

​​​​​​​The Role

Our Supported Living branch in North Lanarkshire provides support to more than 40 adults, of all ages, throughout North Lanarkshire. The people we support have a variety of support needs, including learning disabilities, autism, dementia, personality disorders and brain injury.

As a Support Worker, you will provide person-centred support based upon the needs of each individual. With a focus on promoting and encouraging independence, you will support with all aspects of daily living, including personal care. This is an exciting, dynamic role where no two days are ever the same! The people we support like to keep busy and enjoy being out and about; so, you’ll find yourself out walking, having picnics, baking and doing arts and crafts!

About You

We are looking for people with a real passion to build relationships and positively impact the lives of the people we support. So, whilst it would be beneficial if you have experience in a similar role, this is not essential. What’s most important to us is that you can demonstrate the right values and attitude to make a difference. You’ll receive all the training and support you need through our award-winning Training Academy, including the opportunity to complete a fully funded SVQ qualification.

As travel will be required throughout North Lanarkshire, it is essential that you hold a full UK driving licence.

To be a great Support Worker, you will be:

  • a naturally empathetic person with a warm, friendly personality
  • able to demonstrate exceptional communication skills and set clear boundaries
  • able to build and maintain positive, respectful relationships with lots of different types of people
  • adaptable and able to think on your feet and use your initiative
  • competent in the use of technology to enhance the support you provide, e.g. Microsoft Office and Outlook
  • reliable, flexible and responsive to meet the changing needs of the person we support

Shift Patterns

Our teams provide support twenty-four-hours a day, seven days a week. So, you will be expected to work early mornings, evenings, weekends, sleepovers and public holidays as part of your rota. Sleepovers do not form part of your contracted hours meaning you will receive an additional payment of £76 for each sleepover shift that you work!

Do you have any questions? To find out more, please contact Charlene Boyle on 07989205988

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to a virtual interview on Monday 31st January 2022.

​​​​​​​If you’re successful in joining our team, you will be expected to join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme and must be willing to work towards a SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare as required for SSSC registration. We will need you to register with the SSSC within 6 months of starting your employment with us.
