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 to achieve their goals and outcomes – whatever they may be!

Each person we support has different support needs, so your role may include assisting them with various aspects of care.

Let us introduce you to Ryan:

“People who know me would say I am a lively, likeable and intriguing young man. I enjoy engaging with my staff but it is important they take the time to get to know me and build my trust.

I have Autism Spectrum Disorder and a learning disability and require a lot of additional support with day to day living. My team support me with all aspects of living in my own home, including personal care, Positive Behaviour Support and working towards my own individual goals and outcomes. At times, I can become anxious and upset and I need my team to help me with this - my team are trained in PaMOVA in order to support me during these times.

Some of the things I enjoy doing include going for a walk, getting out for a drive in my van (which my staff drive for me), visiting parks and using the swings. I also enjoy playing games at home and particularly enjoy Lego and jigsaws.”

About You

I need the people who support me to:

  • Be resilient and calm
  • Have a good sense of humour
  • 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 and a team facilitator 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.
