    Created: 14/09/2017

    Post: Support Practitioner
    Location: Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Central Fife and Levenmouth Areas
    Hours: Full-time - 39 hours per week and various part-time
    Salary: £17,137 per annum (pro rata for part-time)

    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. The organisation driven by strong values and a firm commitment to choice, dignity and social inclusion. Although they support over 2,800 people throughout Scotland, we 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, Kirkcaldy, Central Fife and Levenmouth areas and are looking for people who can help our supported individuals to achieve their own positive outcomes.

    They are therefore looking to recruit new staff members to join the team. 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. There are various Support Practitioner posts available (hours range from 16 to 39 hours per week), also a waken night service, if you are looking for part-time but can be flexible this could be the service for you. 

    It is essential that you have a full driving licence and access to a car for this role. No care experience is necessary for these positions, but they are also seeking people who have previously worked in this type of service and who are looking to develop their career with an organisation committed to achieving outcomes for the people we support and for our staff. People with skills in supporting those with autism and learning disabilities will find this a great service to be part of. This is an excellent opportunity to make a change in your life and in that of the people we support. The work can be challenging, but as well as a competitive salary, enhanced pension contributions and annual leave, childcare vouchers and discounts at over 850 online and high street retailers, we can offer you a rewarding and satisfying role in your local community.

    PVG checks will be required of all successful applicants; having a conviction will not necessarily debar you from working in this sector.
