Do you have what it takes to make a difference?

Would you like to do something different next Monday morning? To forget the never-ending 9-5 and make a real difference to someone’s life? Or maybe you are already working in social care and want to join an organisation with values at its core?

Well this may be the opportunity you have been looking for…..

ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic and vibrant organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people with learning disabilities and we have an exciting opportunity for you to support Mary in Airdrie and Emma in Coatbridge to make the most of their life.

That could mean supporting them to live independently in their own home or take part in activities we take for granted. And, who knows, it could make a difference to your life as well.

Here’s a little more about Mary:
"People who know me will say that it I am a loving and affectionate person who knows my own mind. I enjoy meeting new people although it can take me a while to get to know them and to build trust. I like to visit local cafes for coffee or to go a drive in my car. I visit my sister each week and my other sister comes to visit me so I need people who are happy to support me with this. I can have times where I can become upset and distressed and I need people who are confident to support me during these times. I need staff who can support me during the day and also support me during the night as I can experience disturbed sleep so I have a waking night shift in place. I require support with all personal care, domestic tasks and social activities. I am looking for people who are willing to support me to try new things socially and to make some new friendships.”

Here’s a little more about Emma:
"People who know me will say that it I am a fun loving person who loves life. I am still at school and live with my parents. I am looking for people to support me with some personal care tasks and social activities. I am looking to have new experiences and to build new friendships. I love being out and about and love to meet new people. I need staff to help me with health related tasks and manual handling tasks. I need staff who like a laugh, love to try new things and who are confident in social environments. I love music, horses, being pampered and to have the opportunity to go to Hydrotherapy. I need staff who are able to support me after school and weekends. I need more support during the daytime during the school holidays.”

If you think you could share the same interests and have the commitment to support Mary and Emma to get the most out of life please click the link to apply now. We have 4 vacancies available, 1x 24 hours per week supporting both Mary and Emma and 3x 16 hours per week supporting Mary only.

You don’t need experience in care to start your career with ENABLE Scotland. We recruit people based on their values and transferrable skills. No matter where you have worked before; be it retail, admin, warehousing or wherever, we want to hear from you!

What’s also great about ENABLE Scotland is that 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.

Remember this is #morethanajob – it’s the first step to you making a difference and beginning your career with an award winning charity with its values at its core.
