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 full time and sessional opportunities for you to support John in Aberdeen to make the most of their life.

That could mean supporting them to live independently in their own homes 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 John:
“People who know me will say that it takes time for me to trust and build up a relationship. I am a friendly person. I like watching my DVD’s and TV. I also have a keen interest in steam engine trains and enjoy looking at these on the internet. I like to spend my days out and about in my car. I go to various places, such as Banchory, Dundee and enjoy my lunch out.”

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

If successful your role will include:
• Supporting John to social activities within the community
• Working with my team to find new exciting opportunities for me
• Assisting with shopping
• Helping with household chores
• Attending health appointments

This is a permanent post working on a full time contract. John requires support Monday and Tuesday 9am-6pm and Wednesday to Sunday 9am-10pm plus sleep in 10pm-7am then support John 7am-9.30am.

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!

If this is you then please click the link to apply now. Every person we support has their own hobbies and interests, likes and dislikes, which is reflected in our person-centred recruitment processes. So please give us as much detail about you to allow us to carry out our bespoke matching service.

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.
