Do you have a passion for ensuring people with learning disabilities live fulfilled lives? Do you want to help lead a community that values people for who they are and what they can do?

L’Arche Edinburgh is an ecumenical Christian community of more than 80 people, which welcomes people of all faiths and none. We are part of a global network of communities where people with and without learning disabilities live and share in life together, working for a world where we all belong.

We are seeking someone with management experience in social care who can lead the Assistants Coordinator (Human Resources Manager) role. Experience of management and HR processes are key requirements, along with a commitment to L’Arche values and ethos.

A unique part of our mission is to welcome assistants to live alongside the people with learning disabilities we support, and your role will be key in ensuring we have live-in and live-out assistants with the right skills and potential to fulfil that mission.

32 hours a week worked flexibly depending on the needs of the Community, with occasional evening and weekend commitments locally, and some events requiring travel

If you are interested in being part of a mutually supportive and lively community, then we want to hear from you!
