ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic and vibrant organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people with learning disabilities. You should have the drive, commitment and motivation to support people with physical and learning difficulties, striving to make sure they have the same opportunities as everyone else.

We have an exciting vacancy within the Edinburgh area for a confident and motivated person to support a lady and a gentleman within their own home and out and about in the community.

Here’s a little more about the lady:
"This will include supporting the lady to be involved in the local community with which she requires support and encouragement from her support team. She is looking for someone who is patient and confident to take the time to build up a good rapport and support her to engage with others and her community resources."

You should be committed, reliable, motivated, proactive, creative and enthusiastic as well as adaptable and comfortable with a slower pace when needed. She is looking for someone who will engage with her throughout activities at home such as listening to music, appreciating her DVD collection, shopping, baking and more.

A good sense of humour is a must as she enjoys some banter with her support team and her housemate.

Here’s a little more about the gentleman:
"He is looking for someone who can share and enjoy his interests which include baking, going to the cinema, hill walking, his DVD collection, and especially quality one to one time with his support team. He is looking for someone who is patient and can explain things clearly and concisely, someone who will endeavour to work with his support team to ensure consistency within support and responses which is essential in minimising anxieties."

If you think you could share the same interests and have the commitment to support this lady and gentleman to get the most out of life, this might be the opportunity for you.

If successful your role will include:
• Supporting them both to social activities within the community
• Assisting with shopping
• Helping with household chores
• Attending health appointments

We have one permanent post working 128 hours every 4 weeks and sessional posts covering annual leave and sickness as required. These roles require full flexibility 7 days a week (with approximately 2 out of 4 weekends off). This lady and gentleman are supported 24 hours a day therefore, this post requires availability days, evenings, weekends and sleepovers.

At ENABLE Scotland we believe in developing all our staff and provide an extensive training programme, combined with a commitment to create career development opportunities including SVQ Level 2. We also provide excellent employee benefits including a Contributory Pension Scheme and an Employee Healthcare Plan.
