For almost 30 years, Share Scotland have worked tirelessly with young people and adults with complex disabilities to provide individually-tailored, 24-hour care, supporting them to have positive and fulfilling lives, and to play an active role in their community. Now we are looking to the future and are recruiting 2 x Support Workers for our service in Niddrie, Edinburgh. This is your opportunity to join an innovative, family-led organisation and help play a part in achieving our bold ambitions.
Working as part of a dynamic and supportive team, you will be an enthusiastic person who can bring their own unique skills, interests and ideas to share. Along with a dedication to the role of Support Worker, you will have the knowledge that you are supporting our service users to live their lives to the max.
If you have the right personality and attitude, then we can provide you with expert training to do the job, and if you have experience or a relevant qualification, even better.
The vocational training, continuous development and excellent induction package you will receive will ensure you have outstanding support throughout the progression of your career with us.
Achieving a maximum of 6 stars by the Care Inspectorate for the quality of care and support we deliver, Share Scotland is the care sector’s best kept secret. We support people to take risks to actively pursue their chosen lifestyle within their own home and local community. Can YOU rise to the challenge of undertaking this life enhancing work and supporting people to take up opportunities that may have been denied them in the past?
We pay the Scottish Living Wage, £8.75 per hour, as our starting rate. Additional benefits include contributory pension scheme, life cover, SVQ training and a generous holiday allowance.
This is a fabulous opportunity to be part of a dynamic team who are expanding in order to allow others to experience new opportunities, face new challenges, realise new ambitions and grow as individuals.
