Role

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.

Part of CrossReach Children’s Services, our Community Team in partnership with local agencies, supports young people to be a part of community life. By adopting a child-centred approach our team works with the ‘whole-child’, focusing on improving relationships and enhancing personal development.

You will support our Lead Practitioner in every aspect of their role from implementing care and education plans to contributing to the assessment of each child’s needs. An HNC Social Care and SVQ Level 3 qualification is preferable with experience in a care/education role. You will also need a full driving licence or a commitment to achieving this within an agreed time scale.

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. This post is subject to PVG Membership.
