Kingdom provides housing and support throughout East, West and Central Scotland. Their Support and Care Service provide a high quality, flexible service to people with a wide range of support and care needs.

A current full UK driving licence and the use of a car for work are essential in East Fife services. You will provide as required cover in any of their services. Previous experience of providing care (not necessarily in a work setting) is desirable. They will provide you with training towards an SVQ in Social Care unless already obtained. You will be placed at the unqualified rate unless you have achieved the relevant qualification as determined by the Scottish Social Services Council. You will need to be registered as a member of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme.

Please note that some of their services will require you to have the use of a car for work purposes, however other services will only require you to be able to drive service users cars, therefore a current full UK driving licence may be required.
