At Cornerstone our aim is simple, ‘to enable the people we support to enjoy a valued life’. Everyday across Scotland we support people with disabilities and other support needs to become more independent and be active in their community.
Are you an experienced leader looking to work for a multi-award winning Scottish charity? Do you want to be surrounded by inspirational, innovative people who are dedicated to being the best that they can be?
Cornerstone is one of Scotland’s largest charities with over 35 years’ experience providing care and support for adults and children with various support needs throughout the country. We are leading the way to change the future of Health and Social Care by developing local self-organised teams; not only improving the quality of the support we deliver, but benefiting colleagues with greater autonomy and more professional development opportunities. We want our colleagues to be truly valued for the highly-skilled, life-changing work that they do every day.
With exciting times ahead, we’re on the lookout for an experienced, driven leader to take on the role of Branch Leader covering our Housing Support services in West Dunbartonshire and Argyll and Bute Branch. This is a part time position for 24 hours per week.
