Due to the on going growth and development of our personalised support services we currently have a number of job opportunities within our Dumfries service.

As a Support Worker you will join a team providing individualised support to adults with learning and other support needs.

Successful candidates will enjoy supporting people and have a positive attitude and commitment towards making a difference to the lives of the people we support.

Duties will include supporting people with personal care, maintaining their home and to develop and maintain full and active participation in their communities. A commitment to a person centred approach is essential. Previous experience of working with people with complex needs and acquired brain injuries is desirable. However, not essential.

If you would like to get involved in support work but cannot commit to a contract because you have other commitments, then there are opportunities to join our register of relief workers.

Applicants must be prepared and able to work flexibly as part of the team to meet the needs of the people who use our service. Supports will include work in the evenings, weekends, sleepovers and waking nights where required, for which an additional payment is made.

For an application form, job description and copy of our equal opportunities policy, please visit our website by the “Apply” button on this page.

Closing date for applications is Friday, 9th December 2016.
