We are currently recruiting within our Dumbarton Service to support to support a woman “Pam” to move from her family home into her own flat in Dumbarton.

We will support Pam 24 hours a day with all aspects of her life including personal care, taking care of her home and finances as well as developing and maintaining full and active participation in the community. Pam enjoys art and crafts, bingo, and music. She also enjoys going to the hairdressers and getting her nails done. Pam requires support as she has a learning disability and uses a wheelchair.

Pam has her own car to support her to lead a full and active life in the community, so drivers are particularly welcome to apply.

A commitment to a person-centred approach is essential and experience of working with people with learning disabilities is desirable.

We have a variety of hours available and applicants should be able to work flexibly as part of the team to meet the needs of Pam with shifts including evenings, weekends and sleepovers.

Key provides excellent professional supervision, support and training, including access to the SVQ Framework and a chance to really make a difference to people’s lives.

If you would like to get involved in support work but cannot commit to a contract because you have other commitments, then there are opportunities to join our register of relief workers who provide support based on their availability.

We would encourage you to submit your application as the earliest convenience as we may be able to offer interview at an earlier date to shortlisted candidates.

If you would like to arrange an informal chat to find out more do not hesitate to get in touch. Please contact Kim at our Dumbarton Office on 01389 734 651 or 07767118223 or at kim.bain@key.org.uk
