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 role as Support Worker 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 Jimmy
Jimmy requires 24/7 support. Jimmy has a lot of hobbies and interests which he enjoys. He loves anything to do with cars and has his own mobility vehicle which takes him on all sorts of adventures. That does not mean you have to be a driver to support Jimmy as he also has interests at home and close to home. Jimmy loves his gadgets especially his x box and laptop. When not using these, he can be found laughing at his favourite cartoons. Music is another passion Jimmy has in his life. He makes his own playlists for various times of the day and has a real eclectic taste in his choices.
While Covid has made more restrictions in Jimmy’s life he would love to go on another holiday. His last one was a trip to the Grand Prix at Silverstone which he thoroughly enjoyed.
We also support other individuals locally and successful applicants would be offered to support in a variety of settings.
