At Cornerstone, we all work together to make a positive difference to people’s lives. We are one of Scotland’s largest charities with over 35 years’ experience providing care and support for adults and children with various support needs throughout the country. We are incredibly proud to have an amazing team of dedicated people who share our Values and continually strive to enable the people we support to live happy, independent lives.

We have a great opportunity for a Technology Enabled Care (TEC) Responder to join our team in North Lanarkshire for 35 hours per week. This is a temporary position for 12 months.

Based in Coatbridge, you’ll provide tailored care to the individuals we support using technology enabled care systems. You will respond quickly and sensitively when alerts are generated from the system indicating that an individual needs assistance or directly requests assistance.

Your responsibilities will include contacting the person we support by telephone or video call and/or visiting their home to provide direct one-to-one support. In addition, you will provide support to the on-call manager and other colleagues – this may include being the first point of contact for colleagues seeking assistance, visiting the home of a person we support or coordinating care activities in an emergency situation. There will be guidelines and training in place to assist you in your success in this role.

As this role will involve lone-working, we’re looking for someone with great problem-solving skills, the ability to stay calm under pressure and the confidence to make decisions.

For this particular vacancy, we do need you to have a full UK drivers licence and access to your own vehicle. The proposed shift pattern will be three night shifts one week and four night shifts the next week.

By joining us, you will gain a wealth of experience and access to a vast range of learning and development opportunities. You will also receive a fantastic benefits package, including generous annual leave, Group Personal Pension, Group Life Assurance and access to exclusive on-line shopping discounts and rewards via ‘Perks at Work’.

A career with Cornerstone is more than a job. Apply today and begin your journey with us.
