Role

Changing lives takes a little time and space.

At The Old Lodge in Boquhan, Stirling, we offer residential care for children looked after away from home, who require additional support to cope with the challenges they face. Through a child-centred approach we focus on strengthening relationships, personal development and supporting learning.

As a mentor for children in residential care you will undertake key-worker responsibilities for individual children. This will involve assessing needs, creating and maintaining Care Plans and identifying strategies for positive outcomes.

We are looking for an HNC Social Care and SVQ Level 3 qualification and experience in a care/education role. You will also need a full driving licence. A knowledge and understanding of Attachment Theory Informed Practice would be an advantage.

In return we offer an excellent benefits package that includes an employer contributory pension and generous holiday allowance. What’s more we’ll make sure you have all the training and development you need, not only so you can do a great job, but to help you build your career with us too.

Join us and you will be part of one of Scotland ’s largest voluntary social work organisations. At CrossReach, we offer quality care and counselling to a wide range of people in need. But the real story of CrossReach is the work that our staff do: reaching out and making a real difference to the lives of others. If you’d like to join them, we look forward to hearing from you.

As we do our work in Christ’s name you must be respectful of our Christian Ethos and be able to work within it. You do not need to share our faith. These posts are subject to PVG Membership.
