Are you looking for an exciting new challenge where you can make a huge difference to the lives of others and go home every day with a huge amount of job satisfaction? Yes? We're looking for someone like you!

Our Forrest Walk team in Uphall, West Lothian are on the look out for part-time and relief Support Assistants.
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 Assistant, you'll provide personalised and flexible support based on the assessed needs of each individual. With a focus on reducing social isolation, maintaining and promoting independence, you will enable the people we support to live as independently as possible and play an active role within their local communities.

Our service runs 24/7, so we will need you to be flexible and available to work early mornings, days, evenings, weekends, waking nights and public holidays as these are essential to ensure that we provide the best round the clock support.

Don't have experience or qualifications within a care setting? Please don’t be put off as if you're successful, we'll invest in you by giving you the skills you need with our excellent training programme. By joining us, you will have a rewarding career in social care, gaining a wealth of experience and access to a vast range of learning and development opportunities. You will be challenged, engaged and supported to reach your maximum potential and help us achieve our goal of becoming the first choice for care and support in Scotland.

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.

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

The first stage of our selection process will be a 'Meet & Greet' at our service on Wednesday, 25th October 2017 1700-1800 hours. If you're successful at this stage, interviews will be held on 30th and 31st October 2017.

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.
