Are you interested in working for an award-winning social care charity?
Let us introduce you to Town View:
Town View is a House of Multiple Occupancy that is home to 5 people that we support. The house is an open, bright and homely environment designed to accommodate people with varying support needs. The team consists of approximately 15 personal assistants that work together as a team to deliver professional, compassionate and person-centred care to the residents.
A typical day working consists of supporting people to get ready, this will involve full personal care and supporting to carry out their day-to-day activities. Your day would be varied: attending health appointments, going shopping or out for a local walk. No day is the same and this role requires someone who is flexible and dynamic in their approach to working as part of the team.
What Daniel, Craig, Gemma, Jason and Cameron are looking for:
"We are looking for an enthusiastic, fun and sociable person who can help support us with a wide range of individual activities to access and achieve, this includes swimming, walks, going out and about in our cars and visiting new places and days away, short break holiday. We also require support with chores at home, cooking, cleaning and help with paying bills"
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 Personal Assistant 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.
If you think you share the same interests and have the commitment, dedication, and above all, desire to support us to get the most out of life; then please apply now!
