The Richmond Fellowship Scotland - Support Practitioner
Created: 29/08/2017, Updated: 12/09/2017
Post: Support Practitioner
Hours: 39 per week
Salary: £17,137 per annum
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland is a leading voluntary organisation, supporting people with a broad range of needs to live in their own homes, as part of their community. They are an organisation driven by strong values and a firm commitment to choice, dignity and social inclusion. Although they support over 2800 people throughout Scotland, they are committed to delivering services that recognise people as individuals and treat them with dignity and respect; just like we would all want ourselves.
They are currently looking to increase their staff resource in the Glenrothes, North-East Fife and Levenmouth areas, 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 15 Support Practitioner posts available (hours range from 16 to 39 per week). PVG checks will be required of all successful applicants; having a conviction will not necessarily debar you from working in this sector.
