‘The best part of my job is the people. I became a Support Worker as I wanted to help make a difference to someone’s life, however big or small.’

- Margaret, Visualise Support Worker

Do you want to join a team that is making a real difference to people’s lives? If so, Visualise Scotland are looking to recruit committed and passionate individuals for Support Worker positions that will allow you to work as part of a close knit, skilled and talented team.

Working for Visualise involves supporting adults living with disabilities to have the best quality of life possible, supporting their independence and choice. This can be in our housing support, day services or care at home. This includes supporting people with their day to day life- getting them ready in the morning, supporting them with personal care and hygiene, preparing food and meals, getting out and enabling them to take part in hobbies and leisure activities, using public transport, administering medication, attending appointments, managing their finances and accompanying them to social events. We are looking for someone who thrives on building relationships and working in a fast-paced environment where two days are never the same

Good interpersonal skills, patience and a willingness to learn are essential. Experience of working with people with disabilities is desirable but not essential as full training and support will be provided. Visualise provides quality support. We were graded 5 (very good, by Care Inspectorate in 2020).
