The Service

 

Due to expansion in our River Street service in Brechin we are now recruiting Support Workers. The service provides 24/7 support for individuals with a Learning Disability, this being delivered within our established residential setting

The Job

Our service provides person centred support to enable service users to live as independently as possible, assisting with personal care and the use of Moving and Handling equipment. Enabling each service user to reach their full potential in areas such as cooking, shopping, and budgeting, provide opportunities to access local amenities and for social interaction within the local community.

As we provide a 24/7 hour service a flexible approach is required for this position shift working, weekend working, waking nights and sleepovers are required. You should have a positive attitude to training along with SVQ2 in Health and Social Care, or the willingness to undertake study to achieve this. Previous experience of working with people with a Learning Disability is desirable as is a clean driving license, experience of a range of communication methods and willingness to drive service users’ vehicles.
