Support Practitioner – Stirling
Type: Full-time (37.5) and Part-time positions available
Salary: £18,184 - £19,162 per annum (pro rata)
At Carr Gomm, we appreciate how difficult the current climate is for everyone. Please be assured that the health and safety of people supported and our staff is a priority for us. As a member of our team, you can expect:
- Access to full PPE and hand sanitiser (gloves, aprons, masks, visors, and goggles) when appropriate.
- Full training in the effective use of PPE, following agreed guidance issued by Health Protection Scotland.
As one of Scotland’s leading social care and community development charities, we are fully up-to-date with industry accepted guidance on infection control procedures, vaccination roll-out, and visiting friends and family advice.
Carr Gomm’s services in the Forth Valley provide specialist support to people with Learning Disabilities and Mental Ill Health, in different settings – larger 24 hour services, and services providing much shorter periods of support. Shift patterns vary from service to service – and you will be trained and well supported to deliver great support to people who rely on our services. Although we are currently recruiting for one of our Stirling services you could be asked to support in any of our services across Forth Valley if the needs of people supported changes or your skills, experience and personality are better suited to one of our other services.
If you’re good at seeing people as unique individuals with their own skills, opinions and dreams for the future; developing professional relationships with a diverse set of people; encouraging people to overcome obstacles and ensuring their voices are heard; if you are an excellent team player, but also value being trusted to work alone then we have opportunities for you to join our team in Forth Valley.
We can offer you the opportunity to work in one of Scotland’s leading social care and support charities. We know our work is challenging and rewarding, and we require people with a flexible and inspirational approach able to find innovative solutions with people, not for them.
We’ll trust you to become an amazing member of our team, to actively listen to people, to develop personalised support plans for people with often quite complex challenges to overcome. We’ll support you by providing a comprehensive induction, regular supervision and team meetings to ensure you maximise your potential.
We’d love to hear from you if you have experience in a similar role – we value that experience. However if you don’t have any experience and working in Social Care is new to you, don’t be put off! We are interested in what you are like as a person, and what values you can bring. If they match ours, we are convinced that our training and ongoing support will make you into an excellent Support Practitioner.
We’ll develop your career by helping you register as a professional social care practitioner with the SSSC. We’ll support you in completing your vocational SVQ training and we’ll ensure you benefit from continual professional development.
