Role

GAMH services support people with mental health problems to recover and lead self-determined and purposeful lives. We currently have vacancies for reliable people who can commit to our core values of equality, inclusion and recovery.

Our Learning and Development Programme guarantees that you have continuous training opportunities to ensure that you have all the skills you need for the job as well as meeting the requirements for SSSC registration

GAMH are commissioned by the Glasgow Carers Partnership to deliver support to carers through our two Carers Centres in the West and South West of the city.

The Carers Centres provide inclusive and holistic support to carers to maintain their quality of life and improve their health and wellbeing through the provision of an Adult Carers Support Plan which is person centred, coordinated, and outcome focussed on the needs of the carer.

Our carer support services promote choice, control and independence, tailoring solutions to carers’ specific needs as far as possible and connecting them with their community.

GAMH, as part of the Glasgow Carers Partnership, works closely with the Social Work Carer Support Teams which are located in each of the 3 sectors of the city to ensure carers can access the right support at the right time in their caring journey from early intervention and diagnosis to crisis and emergencies.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate the values and attitude required to work with people who are living with mental health problems and who may have complex needs.

Knowledge of the SSSC’s Codes of Practice and the National Care Standards and how this framework applies to practice is preferred for all posts. A qualification at SVQ3 or equivalent, or a willingness to work towards achieving this qualification is essential.

All applicants must be able to work flexibly; some early morning, evening and weekend working will be required. Full induction and training will be provided.
