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. Our charity is proud to have been named the Charity Times 'Charity of the Year 2019/20'.
 
The Service is situated in the Southside of Glasgow directly across from Bellahouston Park. The Service supports four gentlemen who currently and previously have displayed challenging behaviour. Experience of challenging behaviour would be advantageous but not essential as training will be provided.

Staff must be resilient when working in service and be able to come up with new ideas/activities to share with the team that may interest and stimulate the gentlemen.

The shift pattern in place currently is 8am-8pm usually 12 hour shifts and there may be a requirement to cover nightshift duties which would also be a 12 hour shift from 8pm-8am.  We are currently recruiting for one full-time staff member and one part-time staff member.

We want to hear from caring, enthusiastic and dedicated team players with a can-do approach who, as a Support Worker, will be committed to support people to have a great life through innovative person centred support.

Previous experience is not essential as we provide a comprehensive induction and training programme.

Our ideal Support Worker will be:
 
  • Self-motivated with energy and drive
  • Reliable, friendly and caring to support the people we support to achieve their everyday goals (including personal care)

  • Able to help manage some behaviours that may challenge the norm – we provide training and guidance to enable you to do this
  • Comfortable using basic IT systems that are required within the role - training can be offered to support this area

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.

As part of the selection process you will have an opportunity to meet the people you will be supporting in their home environment. This will allow you to see first-hand their wonderful personalities and fully understand the level of care and support that is required.
