Taking a leading role in that team needs an experienced manager of multi-million-pound budgets, of innovative strategies, and of capable, motivated people. It’s an incredible opportunity to take the next step up in your career.

And it could be the first of many. With us, you’ll have ongoing training, support for gaining professional qualifications and, potentially, opportunities for progression. Until then, you’ll find a role that’s rewarding in every sense. As well as a competitive salary, there’s a generous pension, health benefits, paid holiday and a range of leisure discounts.

Support Workers & Senior Support Workers

  • Full time or Part time
  • £21,474 – £21,749
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 10th July 2022

This is a role that’s all about achieving potential. For the people you’ll be working with – young adults with learning disabilities – it’s about discovering more independence and living their best life. For you, it’s about finding a career with incredible impact, personal reward, and bright prospects.

You’ll work with our new transitions services, helping support our service users through a key time in their lives, as they move from the school system and into adulthood. While the day-to-day tasks depend on the service you join – our residential or day centre – you’ll help them take the next steps toward more independent living, across all aspects of their lives. You might be helping create a stable home life, supporting daily activities like washing clothes and preparing meals. Or you could play a part in introducing them to the community – getting out to the shops or going to the cinema. Either way, doing the job well means really getting to know them: looking past their disability to see the person and understand what they enjoy.

Whether you have experience of working with learning disabilities or another area of social care, or even if you’re emphatic person looking to put your people skills to good use, this is opportunity to make a real difference during a crucial period in someone’s life.

As well as our full induction, you’ll have plenty of training opportunities along with mentoring from experienced colleagues. If you haven’t got professional qualifications already, we’ll help you gain SVQ 2 and SVQ 3 qualifications – or SVQ 4, for Senior Support Workers.

That’s because we’re one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social care charities, with more than 1,600 people working across 60 services around the country. A career with us could lead to all sorts of possibilities. Looking after vulnerable families. Getting homeless people off the streets. Helping children outside mainstream education make a better future.

In exchange, as well as a competitive salary, you’ll have a generous pension, health benefits, paid holiday and access to a range of retail and leisure discounts.

Head of Business Support and Strategy

  • Full time
  • £54,000
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 10th July 2022

Facilitating change, setting high-level strategies, developing a brand, driving big ideas through to fruition – for a strategic thinker and savvy communicator, this would be a rewarding role in any large, sector-leading organisation. But, as CrossReach is one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social care providers, this a role with incredible potential. It’s your chance to turn business skills into human impact.

We’re an organisation that is made to make a difference. From a network of 60-plus services, we reach out to help vulnerable people across the country – children and families, adults with learning disabilities, older people in care and those who may have fallen through the cracks in society. It’s vital work, but we believe we can do more. That’s where you come in.

You’ll help lead our strategic development, focusing on areas like marketing, external relations, and business development. So, as well as producing an organisation-wide communications strategy and reviewing our corporate branding tools, you’ll also look at how we manage business opportunities and respond to competitive tenders. As a member of our senior management team, you’ll also have a broader role to play in leading the organisation – with the chance to make your voice heard and contribute to our strategic direction.

It’s a role that demands a true leader, equally adept at managing change and at developing people. With a track record in business development or marketing – ideally within the social care sector – you know all about creating clear corporate communications and driving business effectiveness.

There’s little doubt that it’s a position that comes with real challenge. But you’ll also find a lot of support. Just as you shape our development, we’ll help drive yours – with ongoing training and support for professional qualifications. You’ll find it’s a role that’s rewarding in every sense, as we’ll provide generous benefits including an employer contributory pension, health plan, paid holiday and access to a range of leisure and retail discounts.

  • Closing 31st July 2022

Therapeutic care has an incredible power. With a thoughtful question, a gentle prompt, open ears and a human connection, we can transform people’s lives. That’s why we’re keen to bring our counselling services to more people across Scotland. And it’s why we’re excited to welcome an enthusiastic sales and marketing professional like you to our team.

‘Confidential Conversations’ brings our counselling expertise into workplaces across the public, private and third sectors. It’s a vital service helping professionals and students explore and manage their mental health. It’s also a service we’re looking to grow, which makes your role as Partnership Co-ordinator one that’s full of both reward and impact.

Put simply, it’s about bringing our well-regarded counselling services to more people – whether by cultivating new partnerships or managing existing ones. So, as well as developing and implementing a marketing plan to target more businesses and academic institutions, you’ll nurture our client relationships to maintain and grow service levels. In either case, you’ll look to harness the difference we make already, by monitoring and evaluating our service delivery – quantifying the effectiveness of our counselling and training input to make a compelling case for investing in our expertise.

To take on the role, you’ll need proven skills in sales, marketing or business – whether that means you have a relevant degree or a solid track record in the area. You should be able to draw upon experience of developing sales materials and proactively marketing to potential clients. And, as a confident communicator, you should be ready to represent Confidential Conversations – and CrossReach generally – in all sorts of settings and scenarios.

Whichever role you choose, you’ll lead your team, offering guidance and direction while creating the kind of environment where colleagues thrive, and clients benefit.

In our Counselling Conversations role, you’ll also be responsible for allocating and managing referrals.

Counselling Manager is a role that requires experience – of clinical supervision, of managing teams and of working in therapeutic services but also a real passion for early intervention. To succeed, you’ll need a diploma in counselling or equivalent, as well as a qualification in Clinical Supervision and/or Training. Like any great counsellor, you should also bring strong communication skills and real empathy to the role, while it’s important you share our dedication to continued professional development.
