Starter Packs Glasgow is a charity based in Govan working to alleviate poverty across the city. By providing packs of essential household goods to those moving into a new tenancy, often after homelessness, we can make houses more homely, and help people to sustain their tenancy. We do this through the help and support of our local community, much-needed donations and the many staff and volunteers we’re lucky to work with.
Our van team are often ‘the face of Starter Packs Glasgow’. It is this team who are responsible for delivering our packs to our customers; their experience of us as a charity depends on their experience of our van team members. Equally, the van team are responsible for the collection and delivery of donations and sold goods to our supporters and shop customers; their impression of our van team can influence whether they choose to support us again in future. Our customers let us into their homes, and all deserve to receive a professional service and to be treated with dignity and respect. It is vital that our Van Crew Supervisor appreciates the importance this can play in the ongoing success of the charity. We are, therefore, looking for someone who can inspire the team, not only to meet high standards in vehicle maintenance and health and safety but also to deliver exemplary customer service.

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. We are an organisation driven by strong values and a firm commitment to choice, dignity and social inclusion. Although we support over 2800 people throughout Scotland, we are committed to delivering services that recognise people as individuals and treat them with dignity and respect; just like we would all want ourselves.
We are currently looking to increase our staff resource in the Glasgow South area and are looking for people who can help our supported individuals to achieve their own positive outcomes. We are therefore looking to recruit new Sessional Staff to join the team to provide flexible support.
If you`re fit and healthy with a wide range of personal interests and activities, and are willing to share your community contacts with those you support, this could be the opportunity for you.
You will be part of a committed team, supporting individuals with a variety of complex needs, some of whom also have physical and/or learning disabilities. All of the people supported need support with some aspects of their life such as paying bills and general household tasks, but it can also involve support with personal care and hygiene. There are a number of people with complex needs in the service, some with limited verbal communication. Some of the individuals can get anxious and display challenging behaviour such as verbal outbursts, becoming upset or disengaging from support.
You will join an experienced team full of enthusiastic staff that will mentor you, provide support and guidance and you will also receive excellent training.
There are 10 Sessional posts available as this service is all about being flexible. There is a wide range of shifts available (e.g. earliest start is 8am and the latest finish is usually 10pm however this can sometimes be later for night-time activities) and the sleepover shift is usually backshift followed by an early shift (e.g. 3pm till 10.00pm S/O then a 7am - 3pm finish). The shifts will vary from week to week and can work around university and college hours and placements.
No care experience is necessary for these positions, but we are also seeking people who have previously worked in this type of service and who are looking to develop their career with an organisation committed to achieving outcomes for the people we support and for our staff. People with skills in supporting those with autism and learning disabilities will find this a great service to be part of.
This is an excellent opportunity to make a change in your life and in that of the people we support. The work can be challenging, but as well as a competitive salary, enhanced pension contributions, annual leave and discounts at over 850 online and high street retailers, we can offer you a rewarding and satisfying role in your local community.
