About The Role

EAST KILBRIDE

38 HOURS PER WEEK (AVERAGE) - 12 HOUR SHIFTS (3 OR 4 SHIFTS PER WEEK) - MIX OF DAYSHIFTS AND NIGHTSHIFTS

Are you interested in working for an award winning social care charity?

Personal Assistants (support workers) have the most important role within ENABLE Scotland by making a positive difference every day to the lives of the people we support. No two days are the same for our Personal Assistants but what we can guarantee is that you will be supporting someone with a learning disability to achieve their goals and outcomes – whatever they may be!

Each person we support has different support needs, so your support worker role may include assisting them with various aspects of personal care, moving and handling or positive behavioural support whilst expanding their social networks and connections.

ENABLE Scotland creates a bespoke team around every individual we support, and our team of Personal Assistants work collaboratively to ensure the safety, wellbeing and aspirations of the people we support are met.

The Best in You Brings Out the Best in Me

The people we support have many varied interests and hobbies and have many of the same dreams and aspirations as we do; they just too often do not get the opportunity to experience these same opportunities. A career with ENABLE Scotland is as rewarding as it is diverse, Personal Assistants at their best have the potential to truly bring out the best in the people we support. 

Let us introduce you to Ryan:

People who know me would say I am a likeable, cheeky and energetic young man!  I have a wicked sense of humour and I’m full of energy.

I enjoy going for walks and I tend to walk at a fast pace, my team would say it can be hard to keep up with me! I love going out in my van for a drive and spending time in my garden using my garden swing.  I also enjoy indoor activities such as jigsaws.  I like to maintain contact with my family and my team support me with this.    My team also help me with all aspects of living in my own home, including personal care and will support me to achieve my goals and outcomes.  At times I can become anxious or upset and I need my team to help me with this - my team are trained in positive behaviour support and PaMOVA.

About You

I need people who support me to:

  • Have a great sense of humour
  • Be resilient and calm
  • Be able to work to strict guidelines and procedures
  • Take pride in delivering a high standard of care
  • Be equally as happy supporting me outdoors for the day or having a quiet day at home
I have a dedicated staff team and I am supported by five personal assistants on each shift so, as with any team, you need to be a keen team player who can effectively communicate with others. You don't need experience but an understanding of autism and experience of supporting people who have learning disabilities would be advantageous. 
 
If you think you share the same interests and have the commitment, dedication, and above all, desire to support Ryan to get the most out of life; then please apply now.  ENABLE Scotland needs you and your values to help us create an equal society for every person who has a learning disability.

We recruit people based on their values and transferrable skills. Wherever your journey has taken you up until now, join us, and together we will forge a new path in what could potentially be the most rewarding role you have ever had!
