Do you share our vision?
Do you want to work in an organisation that really cares for the young people we work with?
We are looking to build our relief pool of Family Workers within our Options Dundee Service. We work in partnership with the families to offer tailored packages of support to help support families to stay together. Using a person-centred approach, you will provide enabling support ensuring the highest level of physical, personal, and emotional care to support the families in their daily living and within the local community.
The families we work with find our service invaluable- “I don't know what I'd do without them. I trust them, my child trusts them - we both feel safe when they're in the house…They've changed my and my child’s life.”
You will receive a planned and supported induction consisting of a varied training programme; including CALM Training, Child Protection Training and support to complete an SVQ3. You will be working alongside a highly motivated and skilled team to provide a personalised service for our young people.
Our relief workers play a crucial role in supporting our team. This work is offered on a casual, hourly paid basis to provide cover during staff absence and/or particularly busy periods. Weekend and evening workers required to support the service needs. Availability should be specified on your application and will be discussed at interview. Ideally, you will have experience of direct work with children and families and/or experience of working with children or adults with a learning disability and/or an autism spectrum condition.
No experience? No problem. If you’re interested in working in social care and making a real difference to the lives of disabled people, we’d love to hear from you.
In Dundee, Capability Scotland has a Community Enabling service (Care at Home), Housing Support service and a Day Support service at City Quay through which we support our customers with day to day tasks and to achieve their outcomes. Working for us no two days will be the same as you work with various customers supporting them to access what they enjoy.
During your shift you might be at the cinema, joining a fun run in the park or enjoying the latest exhibition at the V&A (enter something local) all the while keeping our customers safe and cared for. If you are passionate about assisting others to live full and happy lives, we want to hear from you!
