Posted Today by Caretech

Are you person-centred and caring, seeking an opportunity to work on a flexible basis?

We are currently seeking Sessional Support Workers to work within our Children's Residential Services

Our service is based just outside of Fort William and we are seeking compassionate and empowering support workers to work with our Young People with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

This is a great opportunity to work flexibly in your area, whilst building up your experience as a Support Worker. We pay an impressive £67.50 per sleep in and work on a 2 days on, 4 days off rolling shift rota across most of our homes. As a Sessional Support Worker, you will receive industry leading training, have a full manual driving licence to meet the needs of the service and have a drive to succeed.

ACAD provides an environment which children and young people can call home, they have a voice and are actively involved in helping us shape the services of tomorrow. We provide a safe, warm and nurturing environment with a high standard of care and accommodation for our young people and are looking for caring and compassionate individuals who can demonstrate these attributes within a challenging yet rewarding environment. You will be adaptable, able to work under pressure and can work flexibly.

In return you can expect:

  • To join a welcoming and friendly team who have a passion for achieving positive outcomes for our young people
  • An inspiring environment where no two days are the same
  • Superb induction and training; support in gaining recognised qualifications in residential child care
  • The opportunity to progress within the agency.
  • Competitive rates of pay, pension, share-save scheme, on-going personal and professional development.

Due to the nature of the role, it will be necessary for all applicants to be subject to a Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) check by Disclosure Scotland and achieve membership of the scheme prior to commencing work with us. CareTech will pay for this.

All candidates must be successfully registered with the SSSC within 6 months of employment. Please note that a driving licence is essential due to the location of our services and the requirements of the role. Any data received in applications will be used for recruitment purposes within ACAD and CareTech only and will not be retained for longer than 6 months.
