Support Worker 2 & Relief Support Worker

People are at the heart of who we are and what we do. Day-by-day, person-to-person, we tailor what we offer to what people need. We’re here to provide consistent, friendly and informed support so that people can explore options and take ‘the next step’ towards a positive future. We welcome people with a wide range of skills and experiences to our team – including those who have lived through homelessness. To make a difference we need to work flexibly, with everyday-leadership, humour and a ‘can do’ spirit. We want to make it easy, make it right, and make it happen – not only for the people we support, but also for each other. Our #OneTeam ethos is core to who we are, and it means caring for and supporting each other regardless of our role, service or location. This is how we roll. We want people who share these values to join us and become a part of the Simon Community Scotland family.

We provide visiting support to help people who are facing or at risk of homelessness to secure somewhere safe to live, to make the move to that place, and to settle in and make it feel like home. We help people who have experienced significant trauma in their lives, and so our support is trauma informed and based on the trusting relationships that Support Workers build with the people they are helping.
