Our Options Residential Fife service is a full-time, residential care home offering long-term residential care for children and young people with complex learning and physical disabilities. We provide quality living for those children and young people who can no longer live at home.

We are looking for a Young People’s Worker to become part of our family, working 36 hours per week on a residential rota.

At Aberlour we feel that every child has the right to flourish and is at the heart of everything we do. As a Young People’s Worker, you will play a fundamental role in ensuring that our young people are working towards their goals. Not without its challenges and demands, this is a highly rewarding role. You will provide enabling support to ensure the highest level of physical, personal and emotional care to support our young people with different daily activities. These activities can include college, different hobbies and attending fun groups - each of our young people has a developed plan that helps them achieve their goals.

You will become part of a highly skilled and experienced team and will have a supported induction programme, with access to an extensive training programme which includes CALM training, Child Protection and Fire Safety.

This position will mainly be working nights. However, this service operates a residential rota and as part of this, you will be expected to work evenings, weekends, nights and public holidays.
