The Mobile Emergency Care Service have a part time opportunity working as a Mobile Warden within the Mobile Emergency Care Service (MECS).  This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to support the work within the MECS Service to deliver a quality, efficient and effective MECS service across the Falkirk area. 

You will be involved in responding to emergency requests for assistance from service users within their own homes.  You must be an experienced social service worker with commitment, patience and an understanding of ageing and disability and their effect on people’s lives. You must be able to work under pressure and deal confidently, calmly and sensitively with difficult situations.

Training will be provided, both formal and informal, to facilitate the delivery of the MECS service

All MECS Wardens are paid for every minute of their shift including any meal breaks; this is necessary to allow all emergency situations to be handled at any time. 

You must have, or be willing to work towards, an appropriate qualification.  You will be required to register with the Scottish Social Services Council within 6 months on employment
