Support Worker

Location: Irvine, North Ayrshire

Salary: £17,745 - £17,745 per annum (part time pro rata)
Closing Date: 22 Jan 2019, 23:59

Let 2019 be the year you make a difference! Cornerstone has an exciting opportunity for caring, motivated Relief Support Workers to join our Transitions Service based in Irvine, North Ayrshire.

The Transitions Service supports young people aged 18 to 25 years to make decisions about their life after school, build confidence and prepare for the future. With a focus on social inclusion and health and wellbeing, the young people we support work towards qualifications, pursue new training and employment opportunities and build upon life skills to help them achieve their maximum potential. Aspects of personal care are included as part of the role.

Experience within a caring or supportive role would be preferable, but is not essential. As an organisation, we are most interested in your values and who you are as a person! You’ll receive all the training you need through our award-winning Training Academy, including the opportunity to complete your SVQ qualifications!

The normal hours of work will primarily be between 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday, but some flexibility to work evenings and weekends will be required.

This non-contracted position is ideal if you are looking to pick up extra hours around existing employment, or if you are looking for an opportunity to gain some experience in health and social care.

If you’re successful in joining our team, you will be expected to join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme and must be willing to work towards a SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare as required for SSSC registration.

If you’re successful in being shortlisted, you’ll be invited for interview on Monday 28 January.

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