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

We have an exciting vacancy within Largs for a confident and motivated person to support James and Luke on an individual basis out and about in the community.

Here’s a little more about James
I love to play games on my playstation, especially wrestling and fighting games. I am a big wrestling fan so it would be good if you had a similar interest. Sometimes i can be reluctant to go out so I need someone who will motivate me and be creative in encouraging me to get involved in new things.

Here's a little more about Luke
I love to be outdoors whether it is playing at the park, splashing in the puddles or throwing stones in the sea. I like to sing and dance. I can at times get anxious and need lots of reassurance so it is important you keep a routine going with me and use a consistent approach.

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

If successful your role will include:
Supporting us to social activities within the community
Supporting us to dine out for meals
Promoting us to be independent
Supporting us to handle money

This is a sessional post so we are looking for someone who is available in the evenings and weekends but also during the day when the schools are on holiday. The hours of work could be anywhere between 10:00am and 10:00pm. You could be working anywhere between 2 and 12 hours per week.

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.
