Care Support Worker (Personal Assistant)

Location: Hurlford, KA1 5AB.
Salary: £12.00 per hour.
Contract: Various Contracts available; Part time & sessional. Various shift patterns.

Are you interested in working for an award winning social care charity?

Personal Assistants (Support Workers) have the most important role within Enable by making a positive difference every day to the lives of the people we support. No two days are the same for our Personal Assistants but what we can guarantee is that you will be supporting someone with a learning disability to achieve their goals and outcomes – whatever they may be!

Each person we support has different support needs, so your role as Support Worker may include assisting them with various aspects of personal care, moving and handling or positive behavioural support whilst expanding their social networks and connections.

Enable creates a bespoke team around every individual we support, and our team of Personal Assistants work collaboratively to ensure the safety, wellbeing and aspirations of the people we support are met.

The Best in You Brings Out the Best in Me

The people we support have many varied interests and hobbies and have many of the same dreams and aspirations as we do; they just too often do not get the opportunity to experience these same opportunities. A career with Enable is as rewarding as it is diverse, Personal Assistants at their best have the potential to truly bring out the best in the people we support.

Let us introduce you to some of the people you could be supporting:

We are looking for a female personal assistant to enhance two of our teams, both ladies live in the Hurlford area and require support with shopping and some limited personal care support. One lady lives  in her own home and now requires some additional support ensuring  that she has taken her medication and support for shopping and general household tasks. The other lady shares a house with her friend and has a busy social life, so she requires support to attend groups and clubs along with some household tasks when required.

Anne loves being outdoors, going for long walks (especially on those rare sunny days in Scotland) and just being as generally active as possible. A typical day could be going to the shops to ensure Anne has all the essentials she needs, or even just to have a wander around her local community. In her downtime, Anne enjoys watching movies, playing games and just having a general blether with friends. Anne receives support 7 days a week usually between the hours of 9am and 9pm. Anne is a very sociable person who likes to visit friends and attend groups in her community. Anne also has a car so would need a driver who can support her to go about her daily life.

That is why they need you! Will you bring your best so that the people we support can live their best life?

About You
