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 are currently recruiting for Support Workers throughout North Lanarkshire, including Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, Bellshill, Airdrie, Wishaw, Shotts and Motherwell. We have a range of part-time contracted positions available, between 10 to 30 hours per week, including relief (non-contracted) positions.

As a Support Worker, you will take a person-centred approach to help the people we support pursue their chosen lifestyle, within their own home and local community. Our Community Support team provides support for children and young adults, and older adults including care-at-home, learning disabilities, lifelong health conditions and mental health and addictions. Every day offers new challenges and opportunities! As well as providing personal care, administering medication and providing emotional support, you could be supporting someone to attend college, social nights out and holidays.

It would be great if you have an SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare at SCQF Level 7 (SVQ Level 3) or equivalent. However, you do not need specific qualifications or experience to be considered. If you have the right values and are prepared to work towards gaining this qualification, we want to hear from you!

We provide flexible, customer-led services that run twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, so you should be prepared to work evenings, weekends, public holidays and sleepovers on a rota basis.

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 through our award-winning Training Academy. 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.

Cornerstone has an ambitious aim to revolutionise social care by introducing self-organising teams. This model focuses on empowering colleagues in local communities to work in the best interests of the people we support. We are the first social care organisation in Scotland to adopt this way of working and you can be part of this exciting journey.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to a Recruitment Day on Monday 19 November.

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