The roles available cover a variety of working patterns and shifts as well as full-time and part-time opportunities. There are shifts ranging from 4 hours to 8 hours, if this fits in with what you are looking for then we would like to talk to you and see how we can support you in finding a rewarding career. We can offer you excellent training, good rates of pay, excellent holiday entitlement, a generous pension scheme and range of staff benefits.

These posts are considered Regulated Work with Vulnerable Children and/or Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
