Do you have what it takes to make a difference?

Would you like to do something different next Monday morning? To forget the never-ending 9-5 and make a real difference to someone's life? Or maybe you are already working in social care and want to join an organisation with values at its core?

Well this may be the opportunity you have been looking for.....

ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic and vibrant organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people with learning disabilities. We have a number of exciting opportunities to join ENABLE Scotland across Edinburgh and working in a variety of our children's services.

Working within our Children's Services team, we're looking for caring, confident and motivated individuals who have the passion and drive to take a lead role in continuing to improve the quality of the services we provide to the children we support.

There are various roles available, each offering flexible working hours.

You don't need experience in care to start this role. We recruit people based on their values and transferrable skills. No matter where you have worked before; be it retail, admin, warehousing or wherever, we want to hear from you!

Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • The ability to adapt your communication style in order to develop successful and enjoyable relationships with the people we support.
  • The commitment to work with individuals through their personal support plans to ensure people achieve their goals and outcomes and celebrate their successes.
  • A positive and flexible outlook to your work, and be able to work on your own and as part of a team.

If this is you then please click the link to apply now. Every person we support has their own hobbies and interests, likes and dislikes, which is reflected in our person-centred recruitment processes. So please give us as much detail about you to allow us to carry out our bespoke matching service.

We will provide all of the training and support you need, in addition to offering additional development opportunities including an SVQ Level 2.

This is an outstanding opportunity to join Scotland's leading learning disability charity and begin an exciting new career that offers much more than a job.
