Are you a positive and motivated person who has good communication skills and a passion to help people?

We are looking for a Support Practitioner to join our Housing Support team in Oban.

In the role of Support Practitioner you will be providing flexible, person centred support to individuals and families in both a one-to-one setting or through our drop in services. You will help people to develop their life skills, money management skills and help to raise their confidence and self-esteem. Tasks will include assisting with form filling, benefit applications, signposting to other services and practical support in the home. You will be required to utilise both your practical and interpersonal skills.
