Role

· Build strong, direct relationships with your clients and team

· Gain valuable experience working in a social care environment

· Great job satisfaction

Every day at Whiteinch Move On Service in Glasgow our team supports adults with substance misuse problems within our residential or day care settings. We support them to be themselves, create a period of stability, and eventually take charge of their own lives and live life to the full.

We find it’s often the little things that count. Such as helping them with everyday tasks such as keeping their home tidy and clean or dealing with rent payments and budgeting. It can be pretty challenging at times but working as part of our team, your support will definitely make the difference.

What do you need? We’re looking for a positive approach and a genuine interest in helping others in a practical way. You will be required to be registered with Scottish Social Services Council [SSSC] and have an SVQ Level 2 in Social Care. It would also help if you have experience in the social care field, ideally in addictions. In fact we’ll make sure that 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.

You can also look forward to an excellent benefits package that includes an employer contributory pension and generous holiday allowance.

What’s more, 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.
