We are looking for relief workers to cover around the clock shifts on weekdays and weekends. We provide accommodation and support to adults who are homeless and moving on from homeless accommodation.
We provide support, advice and assistance to individuals and groups regarding practical skills, physical health and wellbeing.
We provide opportunities to explore personal interests, occupation of time and positive social networks.
Many of the people we work with are vulnerable and have complex issues, therefore, we are looking for highly motivated relief workers with excellent communication skills who have a personal value set that matches ours.
• People focused
• Going the extra mile
Work will be in our supported residential services or follow on services.
• Do you have the motivation to undertake this role?
• Are you a people person who wants to help homeless people improve their lives?
• Do you see yourself working in the social care sector?
If so this could be a stepping stone role into a career in the social care sector. You will have the opportunity to take part in related training and receive one to one inputs to reviewing your work practice.
If successful, you will be required to register with the Scottish Social Services Council within 6 months of your start date. After registration, there is a requirement to be qualified and to maintain professional learning.
We are looking to build our relief pool of Young People’s Workers within our Options Lothian Service. We offer a safe, homely environment for a child to come and stay for a short break that gives their families a rest from their caring role. During that break, children enjoy a range of fun activities and experiences with our staff who specialise in taking care of children with disabilities. Our service is very much a ‘home from home’ for the children who stay with us there. Our service is open from Fridays to Sundays every week.
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. Availability should be specified on your application form. We need candidates to work the weekends, especially Sundays from 8am – 12pm. 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.
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.
