Support Workers x 2

  • Full time
  • £19,760 – £21,840
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 27th September 2021

We are seeking to recruit individuals who are highly motivated towards providing high quality services to support adults with learning/physical disabilities, complex needs and ASD. The post holder will be required to undertake tasks as delegated by senior staff, but also need to be able to use their own initiative. The post requires adherence to Care Standards and Codes of Practice as well as a positive attitude towards optimum fulfilment of positive experiences whilst attending Antonine Court for day support opportunities.

Previous experience in social care is highly desirable.

You should hold an SVQ 3 in Health and Social Care, or other relevant qualification, to enable registration with the SSSC as a Support Worker; or achieve this within 3 years of appointment. You must also register with SSSC as a Support Worker when this becomes mandatory.

In addition to learning disability and/or complex need, individuals we support may have physical, emotional, and social needs with associated behavioural challenges, requiring compassionate support to understand, prepare for and manage independent living.

The service follows guidance from the Scottish Government’s Keys to Life Strategy, Health and Social Care Standards (My Support, My Life) and Fairer Scotland Action Plan; with a focus on promoting choice and control and independent living through a healthy life, active citizenship, and inclusion. The service is registered with the care inspectorate and staff are required to register and adhere to codes of conduct of the SSSC and registration when this becomes mandatory.

The fundamental outcome of the service is to promote independence, meet needs and work together to enable a life of choices, opportunities, and participation. This work is very rewarding.

The purpose of the role is to provide person centred care, individualised support, skills building and whole life learning to people with a range of needs. The role can be very physically and emotionally demanding, and a high level of personal resilience and strength and personality is essential to support users of the service, although the rewards are fulfilling.

Activities may include:

  • Moving & assisting, intimate care, and other tasks associated with personal care,
  • Social skills education, budgeting and all activities involved in successful daily living and citizenship,
  • Outdoor and indoor activities that promote a healthy lifestyle,
  • Risk assessment, support planning and risk enablement that encourage positive behaviour support.

A set of core strength based approaches, practice and values would be essential in supporting the people who use the service including: Passion, drive, commitment, unconditional positive regard, trust, patience, resilience, innovative thinking and understanding.
