Would you like to assist vulnerable adults to live an independent life? Due to a recent expansion, Kingdom Support and Care are recruiting for Support Workers in the Falkirk and Slamannan Area. They provide a 24 hour service to supported individuals with autism and challenging behaviour. They are looking for people with a positive person centred approach who are passionate about helping people have a fulfilling life.
This post will require someone who is able to support people to develop new skills and attend activities they enjoy doing. Examples include walking, swimming, going to the cinema, bowling and gardening. These services will require you to be trained in CALM theory and physical intervention techniques, if you have not had any training this will be provided to you. These services involve shift work including sleepovers, waking night and they would require you to be flexible with your working hours.
Previous experience of providing care (not necessarily in a work setting) is desirable. They will provide you with training towards an SVQ in Social Care unless already obtained. A current driving license and the use of a car for work purposes are desirable. You will be placed at the unqualified rate unless you have achieved the relevant qualification as determined by the Scottish Social Services Council. You need be registered as a member of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme for the purpose of regulated work with protected adults. The cost of membership (whether a new or existing member) is borne by you. If you are not already a member the cost will be £59, for existing members this will be £18.
