Are you looking for a job that is more than just a job and will give you a huge amount of satisfaction, sense of achievement and a feeling that you have made a real difference? If yes, then you could be just who we're looking for.

Cornerstone is one of Scotland's largest charities with over 35 years experience providing care and support for adults and children with various support needs all over Scotland. 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.

We are looking for enthusiastic, compassionate, motivated and caring Support Workers to join our team at School Park on a part time, permanent basis.

Based in Strichen, School Park is a care home that provides total care to the people we support, we also help enable them out and about in the local community and to maintain contact with family and friends. As a Support Worker you will deliver high quality person-centred support, empowering the people we support to make choices, live independently and achieve their goals. You will liaise and work in close partnership with families and the multi-disciplinary team. You will also be responsible for reviewing and maintaining Personal Support Plans, including undertaking risk assessments as appropriate.

If you're successful in joining our team, we may need you to work days, evenings, weekends, sleepovers and public holidays as these are essential to our services.

In April 2017, Cornerstone will enter a transformational stage as we begin 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.
