For more than twelve years The Leanne Fund has successfully been delivering a range of support services to individuals affected by Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and their families across the North of Scotland. A new development project will enable the charity to support many more individuals and families across 3 additional regions of Scotland.
We are looking for an exceptionally motivated, reliable and enthusiastic individual with appropriate project support experience to join our small and dynamic team here at The Leanne Fund.
The Project Support Officer role’s main purpose will be to support the Development

The Supported Housing Worker role requires assisting in the management of the development thus ensuring the tenants are able to enjoy an acceptable standard of living in an environment which is clean, safe and friendly. You will be responsible for overseeing the wellbeing of the tenants and for assisting them in maintaining their independence.
As Housing Care Worker your role will involve working with our tenants to ensure they receive the support and personal care identified in their care plans. You will directly support tenants in their homes by providing individual advice, practical housing support assistance and personal care.
Both roles are to ensure that we are able to offer the best service to our tenants and make it possible for our tenants to continue enjoying as much independent living as they’re able.
As well as a competitive annual salary, our valued team also benefits from:
We also have opportunities with our Trust Staff Agency - for employees who want to work across different locations, in various roles, with highly flexible hours to suit family commitments - it's a great opportunity with the same training and development that our other roles benefit from.
Previous experience working in social care or the housing sector would be an advantage but this is not always necessary. Our ideal candidate is someone with enthusiasm, a caring nature and willingness to learn as full training, support and ongoing development will be provided.
