Post: Bank Support Practitioner - Waken Night shifts
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland (TRFS) is looking for caring, supportive, adaptable, approachable, empathetic, fun and positive individuals to join their Buckhaven teams, specifically to work waken night shifts on a bank contract.
As a Bank member of staff you will cover staff leave, training, sickness and any other staff absences. Bank contracts are ideal for people who need the extra money and can't find childcare every day. As a Bank staff member you choose what days you work, and you can work full time or part time hours, depending on your preference.
The Senior Support Worker, who is responsible for the rota, will contact you to see if you are available to help out. As you are not required to do shifts, you can pick and choose the hours/shifts that suit you and work around your other commitments. Certain services operate enhanced weekend rates. The shifts available start at 9pm and finish at 8am (11 hour shifts).
These roles can be physically demanding due to the requirement to undergo CALM training and to follow CALM procedures whilst on shift.
These posts are open to drivers and non-drivers. As a non-driver please ensure that you are able to get to shifts on time, especially during weekends and public holidays.
You do not need to have worked in care to apply as we will invest in your qualifications and provide full training through TRFS's award-winning learning and development team prior to starting. They have a detailed, thorough induction for all new bank which must be met within a 28-day period therefore you must be able to commit to meeting this during induction period. Induction training takes place in their Kirkcaldy office during office hours.
