You will receive training in Reablement and work closely with our colleagues in Social Work and Health in order to achieve best outcomes for Service Users.
You must hold a full driving licence; and have the ability to travel throughout Falkirk Council area; as a result, the Reablement Service has a pool of Council vehicles available to the Reablement Care staff in order to facilitate the delivery of support services across all geographical areas. A level of flexibility is required to meet the exigencies of the service.
There are a variety of full-time and part-time shifts available.

You will work 35 hours per week.
If you are a successful candidate for the role of Reablement Carer, you will be working with children and/or vulnerable adults which is considered Regulated Work under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007; therefore you must have PVG membership or undergo a PVG scheme update.
