About The Role

As a Support Worker with Community Integrated Care you will experience an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling role. Our Support Workers empower people with support needs to live the lives they want to lead.

In this service, you will support 10 individuals with Autism, Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities and Mental Health concerns to live their daily lives. From cooking, to supporting people at college, to going shopping, to supporting people on holiday; you’ll do it all and more!

A driving license is not essential, but confidence navigating public transport is a requirement of the role.

  • Comfortable using basic IT systems that are required within the role - training can be offered to support this area

You will also have an appropriate Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) required qualification, as determined by your SSSC registration, or a willingness to work towards this.


It is also important that you share our company values which are at the heart of everything we do and ensure that we deliver high quality, consistent care and support.
