Post: Senior Support Worker
Hours: 37.5 per week
Salary: £20,738 - £22,140 per annum
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland is a leading voluntary organisation, supporting people with a broad range of needs to live in their own homes, as part of their community. They are currently looking to increase their Management team resource in the Glenrothes and North East Fife Area and are looking for Senior Support Workers who can help their supported individuals to achieve their own positive outcomes. They are therefore looking to recruit two new Senior Support Worker into the teams.
The services are established services and the teams that work with the people are well motivated and enthusiastic. They therefore need Senior Support Workers who can continue to support, develop and make a difference to people`s lives. If you have experience of working in a fast paced environment, working to deadlines, chairing meetings, experience of liaising with families, social work and health professionals along with the ability to think on your feet, this could be the opportunity for you. Due to the dispersed nature of services it is essential that you have a driving licence and access to a vehicle. Previous experience of supporting individuals with learning disabilities is essential for this role while experience of working with a wider client group and individuals that have been involved in the criminal justice system would be advantageous. It would be beneficial if you have achieved or are working towards your SVQ 3 in Health & Social Care. The successful applicant must also register with SSSC as a Supervisor in Care at Home and Housing Support Services on taking up the post. This is an excellent opportunity to make a change in your life and in that of the people they support. The work can be challenging, but as well as a competitive salary, enhanced pension contributions and annual leave, childcare vouchers and discounts at over 850 online and high street retailers, they can offer you a rewarding and satisfying role in your local community. PVG checks will be required of all successful applicants; having a conviction will not necessarily debar you from working in this sector. The Richmond Fellowship Scotland is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
