If you’re good at seeing people as unique individuals with their own skills, opinions and dreams for the future; developing professional relationships with a diverse set of people; encouraging people to overcome obstacles and ensuring their voices are heard; if you are an excellent team player, but also value being trusted to work alone…

We can offer you the opportunity to work in one of Scotland’s leading social care and support charities. We know our work is challenging and rewarding, and we require people with a flexible and inspirational approach able to find innovative solutions with people, not for them.

Carr Gomm’s services in Stirling provide specialist support to people with Learning Disabilities and Mental Ill Health, in different settings – larger 24 hour services, and services providing much shorter periods of support. Shift patterns vary from service to service – and you will be trained and well supported to deliver great support to people who rely on our services. You could choose to apply as a relief worker, and you could help us meet increased demand for our services and gain experience with flexible working.

We’ll trust you to become an amazing member of our team, to actively listen to people, to develop personalised support plans for people with often quite complex challenges to overcome. We’ll support you by providing a comprehensive induction, regular supervision and team meetings to ensure you maximise your potential.

We’d love to hear from you if you have experience in a similar role – we value that experience. But if you haven’t, don’t be put off! We are interested in what you are like as a person, and what values you can bring. If they match ours, we are convinced that our training and ongoing support will make you into an excellent Support Practitioner.

We’ll develop your career by helping you register as a professional social care practitioner with the SSSC. We’ll support you in completing your vocational SVQ training and we’ll ensure you benefit from continual professional development.
