The Role

As a Support Practitioner, we'll guarantee you heaps of job satisfaction. No two days are ever the same. You'll play a HUGE part in making a difference in the lives of people living with disabilities and additional support needs in YOUR local community.  

 

With a focus on maintaining and promoting independence, you will work in a person-centred way to provide support in all aspects of daily living, including cooking and preparing meals, personal care, administering medication and managing personal finances. You’ll be enthusiastic and take an active interest in their hobbies which may include karaoke, arts and crafts, live music, going for walks and to the shops along with many more activities. We'll be looking to you to help identify new opportunities for participation and inclusion for the people we support.

It would be great if you have a full driving licence and access to a vehicle as there will be travel across the Elgin area involved. We give a generous mileage rate at 45p per mile and you are also paid the hourly rate for travel time up to 2 hours between shifts.  

It would be great if you have a full driving licence and access to a vehicle  but this isn't a deal breaker.

  • A caring and compassionate attitude
  • The ability to work well in a team
  • Great communication and organisational skills
  • A positive attitude with a willingness to learn
  • A creative drive to improve the lives of the individuals you support
