Care Support Worker (Personal Assistant)
Location: Barrhead, G78 1RS.
Salary: £10.90 per hour.
Contract: 28 hours per week (2x 14-hour days).
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 Ellie:
Ellie has a learning disability and uses a wheelchair to get around. Ellie likes to be as independent as possible. Ellie requires some support with her personal care, medication, cooking and cleaning.
Ellie loves to socialise in the local community and enjoys going for meals, swimming attending local clubs, going to the cinema and generally keeping busy. Ellie has recently secured her own tenancy and is looking to build a support team to help her settle into her new home. Ellie would receive support 7 days a week usually between the hours of 8am and 10pm. Sadly, it’s not always possible for Ellie to enjoy what many people would consider these ‘simple pleasures’ without proper, dedicated support.
That is why Ellie needs you! Will you bring your best so that Ellie can live her best life?
If you think you share the same interests and have the commitment, dedication, and above all, desire to support Ellie to get the most out of life; then please apply now!
