Aberlour Options Moray is a community-based service for children/young people with learning disabilities offering residential, respite short breaks, family-based care and community support matched with the individual needs of every young person.

Do you want to be part of a team that brings security and love to vulnerable young people?

Can you bring energy, enthusiasm and commitment to your role?

If so ……we want to hear from you.

We are looking to fill a number of part-time posts (34 and 35 hours per week, working across a residential shift pattern). Individuals need to bring a range of qualities to the role including being playful, warm and accepting and must be able to adapt their practice to appropriately meet the varying individual needs of each young person.

You must be comfortable working in a culture based on respect, integrity, innovation and the ability to challenge – both yourself and other people. We support our staff to be as effective as they can be through dedicated training and supervision. In return our staff act as exceptional role models supporting the children and young people, as well as sharing knowledge and learning with colleagues.
