Job Description: Casual Care Workers
As a leading not-for-profit provider of quality housing for older people, we want to make a positive difference to our customers’ lives. One of our key commitments is to exceed our customers’ expectations and to provide high quality, personalised services that enhance their quality of life.
We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of person-centred care in tenants’ own homes. Therefore, you’ll ideally have experience of working with people in care or supported accommodation environments but, above all, you’ll also have first class practical and personal care skills and empathy with the people receiving the service.
You’ll need to be flexible and willing to provide cover as and when required. The service operates during the daytime, evenings and weekends and you’ll be covering staff holidays and absence.
Please note the following:
• Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) Level 2 in Health and Social Care or equivalent qualification is desirable. Following the opening of the SSSC registration in October 2017, you will be required to register within 6 months of commencing employment in the post or for current employees, when the Association advises you to register.
• However, if you do not hold the desired qualification of SVQ2 when registering with SSSC, we are committed to supporting you to achieve this. You must obtain this qualification within 12 months of commencing the qualification and within your SSSC condition period.
This post requires PVG Scheme membership (adults).
As part of our vital development teams, you’ll be working in one of the sector’s most forward-thinking organisations that strongly values their staff and customers.
