Time to start a career you love that's packed full of the job satisfaction you deserve!! If you share our values then we have just the role for you! 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We recruit on values and transferrable skills, so you don't need experience or qualifications to start your career with us. We have our own Training Academy that'll give you all the skills you'll need, including the opportunity to complete your SVQ.

We are recruiting for reliable and enthusiastic individuals who are patient to join our housing support and community support services in Clydebank or Dumbarton as ​​​​​​​Support Practitioners. We have up to 30 hours per week contracts available, along with relief opportunities.

The Role

With a focus on maintaining and promoting independence, you will work in a person-centered 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.

As a few of the people we support have their own mobility cars it would be great if you have a manual UK driving licence with at least one year experience but this isn’t a deal breaker!!

To be a great Support Practitioner, we'll need you have;

  • Great communication skills.
  • Able to think outside the box.
  • Caring attitude and approach.
  • Positive approach to learning.
  • Able to follow guidelines.
  • Confidence in the use of technology.

Shift Patterns

We provide tailored support across our Community and Housing Support services. Some of our roles include sleepovers and waking nights.

Our sleepover shifts do not form part of your contracted hours, so you will receive an additional payment of £80.16 for an 8 hour sleepover or £90.18 for a 9 hour sleepover​​​​​​​. For our Waking Nights you will receive a further £20 per night.
