Playing a game, eating lunch together, visiting a beach. They’re everyday things. But in this job, they’re powerful tools: for building trust, creating memories and improving young lives. Because the children in our care have faced more challenges than most, and it’s our job to help them realise their potential and integrate back into their communities.

Here, at CrossReach’s residential service, children live in small community houses and learn at a new purpose-built school, all supported by caring professionals like you. It’s a place made with positive experiences and clear structure in mind – somewhere to heal in time, grow as individuals and succeed in the future.

Which makes this a job with incredible impact. You’ll play a vital role in assessing children’s needs, as well as working with Lead Practitioners to implement care plans. As part of a close-knit team, you’ll take a ‘whole-child’ approach – focusing on everything from completing everyday tasks to improving relationships.

Ideally, you’ll have an HNC Social Care and SVQ Level 3 qualification, plus some experience in a care or education role. However, if you’ve got an emphatic approach with the ability to see beyond behaviour to the reasons why, we’ll provide full training for the role. You’ll also need a driving licence.

Even though CrossReach is one of Scotland’s largest social care organisations with services across the country, we genuinely value the individual. For the children here, that means being treated with respect, whatever the circumstances. For professionals like you, it means being part of an environment where you can contribute ideas, have your needs recognised and achieve your ambitions.

Because as you support the children’s future, we’ll look after yours, with ongoing training and support for achieving additional qualifications. You’ll also receive a competitive salary, together with generous pension, health benefits, paid holiday and access to a range of leisure and retail discounts.

Salary is pro rata of 40 hours per week.
