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 sessional opportunities for you to support John in Elgin to make the most of their lives.

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 about John -
John is a friendly young man who lives in Elgin. John has many interests which include working with animals, visiting local places, walking, swimming, going to the gym, computers and sports. John has recently begun volunteering and is looking for someone to help develop his confidence and daily living skills.
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.
• Accessing local places of interest
• Building connections within the community
• Developing daily living skills to live an independent life
This is a sessional post working 8 hours a week on Tuesday 09:00-13:00 and Wednesday 11:00-15:00 Days are flexible to meet the needs of John. This post requires you to be fully flexible.

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!
