Role

The Partners for Inclusion Group are looking to recruit Support Practitioners in the Renfrewshire area. Our vision is for all our teams to be self-managing, which means keeping the decision making as close to the person supported.

We provide personalised high quality support by matching team members’ likes, needs, hobbies and interests which is bespoke to the person supported.

Experience of working in this area is desirable, but sound values and a real interest in supporting people with learning disabilities / mental health / physical disabilities to have the life of their choosing is fundamental to what we do.

We encourage applications from people who have a real passion about enabling people to be all that they can be, regardless of their disability.

Some of the other qualities that we look for in people are:

  • Outgoing
  • Flexible
  • Confident
  • Team Player
  • Work on own initiative
  • Good Listener
  • Compassionate

The role involves shift work including evening, weekends, sleepovers (where required) and public holidays. We provide a detailed induction programme and ongoing training for all employees.

In line with the Scottish Social Services Council you will be required to have or work towards an appropriate qualification and must register within 6 months of commencing employment with us. You will also be required to register with the PVG scheme.
