Are you really passionate about making a difference to the lives of people who have learning disabilities?

Then read on…

Let us introduce you to Erika

Erika loves dancing, music, socialising and going out to cafe's and restaurants. A typical day could be going to the shops to ensure Erika has all the essentials she needs and is supported to participate in activities that she enjoys. In her downtime, Erika enjoys listening to music and participating activities in her home.

Sadly, it’s not always possible for Erika to enjoy what many people would consider these ‘simple pleasures’ without proper, dedicated support.

Erika is looking for people to join her team. Erika would benefit from someone who has a good understanding of learning disabilities and Autism and someone who will really take the time to know her and support her to live her life to the full.

Personal Assistants have the most important role within ENABLE Scotland by making a positive difference every day to the lives of the people we support. No two days are the same for our Personal Assistants but what we can guarantee is that you will be supporting someone with a learning disability to achieve their goals and outcomes – whatever they may be!

Each person we support has different support needs, so your role may include assisting them with various aspects of personal care, moving and handling or positive behavioural support whilst expanding their social networks and connections.

ENABLE Scotland creates a bespoke team around every individual we support, and our team of Personal Assistants work collaboratively to ensure the safety, wellbeing and aspirations of the people we support are met.

About You

If you think you share the same interests and have the right skills, commitment, dedication, and above all, desire to support Erika to get the most out of life; then please apply now!
