Partners for Inclusion Group have an exciting opportunity within our Renfrewshire area. We are looking for 2 Support Advisors to join our Renfrewshire team based at Highmair, Renfrew. There will be occasional travel to our Kilmarnock office.

As a Support Advisor your duties will involve coaching and mentoring existing teams, identifying skills and areas for development to allow team members to reach their full potential and become self-managed around the people they support ensuring robust decision making is kept as close to the person being supported as possible.

You will have a flexible can do attitude and be able to demonstrate effective leadership skills, including self-reflection and development, for yourself and others.
