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 people like you!

As our services continue to grow, we are on the look out for full-time, part-time and relief Support Assistants and Support Workers in North Ayrshire. So, if you're caring, motivated, flexible and creative we'd love to hear from you. If you're successful in joining our team, our services run 24/7, so we will need you to work early mornings, evenings, weekends, waking nights, sleepovers and public holidays as these are essential to ensure that we provide excellent round the clock support.

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.

By joining our team you'll provide invaluable support to individuals with different support needs. You'll take a personalised and flexible approach based on the assessed needs of each individual, and will help them grow in confidence and meet their goals.

With a focus on encouraging and maintaining independence, and reducing social isolation, you’ll be supporting the day to day personal needs of individuals, including meal planning, cooking, housework, personal hygiene and medication. We’ll also need you to be enthusiastic and creative when supporting individuals with their hobbies and interests. With your help, we will enable the individuals we support to remain in their own homes, maintain their own tenancies and play an active role within their local communities.

If applying for one of our Support Worker roles, you'll also include taking on Key Working and being responsible for developing and maintaining Personal Plans.

Don't have experience in a care setting? Please don't be put off, for our Support Assistant roles we are looking for 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.

If interested in one of our Support Worker opportunities, 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, this isn't essential if you have relevant experience coupled with Values that match ours and are prepared to work towards gaining this qualification.

In return for your hard work, commitment and positive approach, you'll not only receive a huge amount of job satisfaction, we'll invest in you by providing on-going training and development opportunities, a competitive salary, generous annual leave and access to Cornerstone Perks (our exclusive employee discount scheme).

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

Interviews for these roles will take place on 23rd & 24th 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.
