Due to the on going development of our personalised support services we currently have a number of job opportunities.

We are currently supporting a young man to move from his family home into his own home in Helensburgh where he will have his own team of workers to support him with all aspects of his daily life. We are recruiting both Contracted and Relief Register Support Workers to be members of his team to provide individualised support. Successful candidates will enjoy working with people and have a positive attitude and commitment towards making a difference to the lives of the people we support.

Duties will include providing direct physical support, emotional support, advice and encouragement in all areas of everyday living from help with maintaining his home to accessing local community facilities to allow him to lead a full and active life. A commitment to a person centred approach is essential and experience of working with adults with learning disabilities is desirable.

Support is delivered in a varied and flexible pattern around the needs of the people we support; applicants would need to be available to work at various times including day, evenings, weekends and sleepovers. Applications from males would be particularly welcomed.

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 21st October 2016.
