Our Forrest Walk team in Uphall, West Lothian are on the look out for a part time (30 hours) Support Worker to join them on a permanent basis. Shift patterns will include early mornings, evenings, weekends, bank holidays, waking nights and sleepovers.

Forrest Walk is an energetic, fast paced and friendly service where our team pride themselves on working together to make a really positive difference in the lives of people's lives. Providing Residential, Respite and Day Care services, we work closely with the people we support, their families & carers and external stakeholders to encourage independence and help individuals recognise and reach their potential.

As a Support Worker, your main aim will be looking after the day to day personal needs of the individuals supported within our service. You'll take a person centred and outcomes focused approach, and will also take on Key Working and be responsible for developing and maintaining Personal Plans.

It would be great if you already have an SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare at SCQF level 7 (SVQ Level 3) or equivalent; however, the SVQ isn't essential if you have relevant experience coupled with Values that match ours and are prepared to work towards gaining this qualification.

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.
