We are seeking a new staff member who shares our values and wants to work as part of our community.

The focus of the role is to support adults with learning disabilities to participate in meaningful work and activities within our day service.

Our work has adapted due to coronavirus but the focus for this role is arts and crafts work. Ideally staff will bring skills in a craft area, however this is not always essential if there is a willingness to learn and develop specific skills to be able to effectively support our main craft projects.

We work with a variety of people with different abilities, either one-to-one or in shared groups. At present due to the coronavirus much of our work is done in small, separated areas of our buildings.

The core purpose of the role is supporting people with autism and learning disabilities. Previous experience of working with adults with learning disabilities is essential, as is a good understanding of autism and the needs of people who use different forms of communication, and an openness to our community ethos and values.

Tiphereth is a Camphill community based on the edge of the Pentland hills in Edinburgh supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism in a range of day services, supported living, residential care, and social enterprises.
