As Team Leader, your main aim will be to ensure that the needs of both individuals we support within our services in Dunfermline & St.Andrews are met. You will take a person centred and outcomes focused approach, and will coach, mentor and support the development of your staff team and be committed to developing positive relationships with the people we support, their families and carers and other stakeholders.

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 team really pride themselves on working together to make a really positive difference in the lives of the individuals we support.

If you're successful in joining our team, our service runs 24/7, so we will need you to work days, evenings, weekends, waking nights, sleepovers and public holidays as these are essential to ensure that we provide the best round the clock support for our services. The successful candidate will also be needed to undertake formal on-call duties.

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.
