Are you caring, flexible, motivated and creative? Are you looking for an exciting new challenge where you can make a huge difference in the lives of others and go home every day with a huge amount of job satisfaction? Yes? We're looking for people like you!

At Cornerstone, we're not just passionate about delivering great care and support, we celebrate it, we are dedicated to it and we thrive on it. Our aim is to make a real difference to the people we support by enabling them to enjoy a valued life - the life they choose.

Our Dundee Children's service are on the look out for part time ( 20 hours per week) and relief colleagues to join their team. You will be supporting children with a wide range of additional support needs. With a focus on reducing social isolation, maintaining independence and respite for the families and carers, you will enable the children to remain in their own homes, and play an active role within their local communities.

The children we support live across the Dundee area, so it would be great if you hold a full UK driving license, and have access to a vehicle (45p per mile paid travel between calls will be given). However, this is not essential. Shift patterns include split shifts, early mornings, evenings, weekends, bank holidays, waking nights and sleepovers.

Don't have experience in a care setting? Please don't be put off, as we want the right people who share our passion and values. We'll invest in you by giving you the skills you need with our excellent training programme.

Already imagining yourself as part of our team? Apply now and begin your journey with us. You'll never look back.

Successful candidates will be required to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme.

In April 2017, Cornerstone entered a transformational stage as we began our new Strategic Plan, Local Cornerstone. Over 3 years, we look to revolutionise social care delivery by introducing self-organised teams; not only improving the quality of the support we deliver but benefiting colleagues with greater autonomy and more professional development opportunities. We strive to change the way the health and social care sector is viewed in society and want our colleagues to be truly valued for the highly-skilled, life-changing work that they do every day.
