The Richmond Fellowship Scotland - Support Practitioner (Male only)
Post: Support Practitioner
Hours: 39 per week
Salary: £17,137 per annum
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland are currently looking to increase their staff resource in the Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Levenmouth area and are looking for people who can help their supported individuals to achieve their own positive outcomes. They are therefore looking to recruit new staff members to join the team.
If you`re fit and healthy with a wide range of personal interests and activities, and are willing to share your community contacts with those you support, this could be the opportunity for you.
You will be part of a committed team, supporting individuals with a variety of complex needs, some of whom also have physical and/or learning disabilities. All of the people supported need support with some aspects of their life such as paying bills and general household tasks, but it can also involve support with personal care and hygiene. There are a number of people with complex needs in the service, some with limited verbal communication. Some of the individuals can get anxious and display challenging behaviour such as verbal outbursts, becoming upset or disengaging from support.
You will join an experienced team full of enthusiastic staff that will mentor you, provide support and guidance and you will also receive excellent training including a VQ in social care.
Schedule 9 Part 1 (1)(1)(a) of the Equality Act 2010 applies to this post.
