Job Description

Would you like a fantastic new career in Health and Social Care?

Why not start your day hoping to make a difference and end your day knowing you did.

All of the supported individuals need full support with all aspects of their life which include either full support with personal care or prompting with personal care, support with cooking or prompting to cook meals, general household tasks, shopping and attending appointments.

We support individuals in their own homes 24/7, 365 days of the year. Some people have complex communication needs and we use different communication tools to meet their individual needs. Some of the individuals can also get anxious and display challenging behaviour, this usually tends to be when the person is trying to communicate something.

There is a wide range of shifts and we are looking for staff who are flexible to the needs of the service which includes weekends, sleepovers, long days, early shifts, late shifts and waking nights.

The supported individuals lead very active lives and are out and about with the community daily. They enjoy activities like walking no matter the weather, skating, swimming and the list goes on, there is not much they won`t try!

Each person we support is unique so each support role will be different from the next, giving you the chance to make a difference in that individuals life.

A valid driver`s licence is essential for this post.

Not only will you get a great sense of achievement but in return, you can expect fantastic career progression opportunities, award-winning training and a positive enjoyable working environment.

Previous experience is great but a full training program is offered to everyone who joins The Richmond Fellowship Scotland, so even if this is a new career path for you, we would love to meet you.
