We are recruiting for one full-time Team Leader who shares our values and has the experience and skills to support adults with learning disabilities to participate in meaningful work within our day service. You should also have the skills to manage a small staff team and co-ordinate activities within the group which meet the needs of individual members and which are in keeping with Tiphereth’s mission statement, Camphill values and the aims of the Pentland group
The post is based in the Pentland group which carries out woodwork, green woodwork, basketry and grounds maintenance. Together with our members with learning disabilities we aim to produce unique items for our annual fairs and for our community.
Ideally you would have an interest and experience in one of the areas we work in, however this is not essential. What is more important is the capacity to manage a small staff team and to work positively with individuals with autism and complex needs.
Previous experience of working with adults with learning disabilities is essential, as is a good understanding of autism and the needs of people who use different forms of communication and a confidence in working with people with behaviour that challenges.
Tiphereth is a Camphill community based on the edge of the Pentland hills in Edinburgh supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism in a range of day services, supported living, residential care, and social enterprises.
Full details and specific requirements are available at tiphereth.org.uk/jobs.
Closing date for applications is 12pm on Sunday 27th November 2022. Interviews will be arranged on receipt of successful applications.
Successful candidates will be required to be members of the PVG scheme and to register with the Scottish Social Services Council.
