DBI level 2 will be provided by trained staff within SAMH who would contact the person within 24-hours of referral and provide compassionate community problem solving support, wellness and distress management planning, supported connections and signposting for a period of up to 14 days.
Due to the expansion of the service we are looking for a part time DBI Practitioner in our Borders Service. This is a challenging and exciting opportunity to make a difference to peoples’ lives and support them to achieve their identified outcomes. You will be able to demonstrate good communication skills and a mature attitude together with adaptability and enthusiasm. The requirement for this post is a minimum of 2 years of experience working or volunteering in the field of mental health. The office is based in Galashiels but staff will cover the whole Borders area.
As the position will involve a variety of shift patterns including evenings, weekends you will be flexible in the hours and shifts you are available to work. The post will include travel across the Scottish Borders, so access to your own transport is essential.
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:
competitive hourly rates of £8.70 - £9.25 per hour;
guaranteed rota hours working between 7.30 am & 10pm
generous annual leave entitlement;
a choice of pension scheme with employer contributions;
flexible working policies;

a supportive and inclusive culture.
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.
