As a Support Worker you will join one of our well established teams in the Highlands, providing high quality, individualised support to young people and adults with disabilities and long term conditions in their own homes and communities.

On a day to day basis we support people with a range of support needs, including; personal care, taking care of their home and finances, as well as developing and maintaining full and active participation in their community.

You will have a positive attitude; a commitment to an individualised approach and to making a real difference to the lives of the people we support; whilst understanding and adhering to the SSSC Codes of Practice and National Health and Social Care Standards.

You must be prepared to work flexibly as part of a small team to meet the needs of the people we support. This will include working in the evenings and weekends as well overnight, (sleepovers and waking nights), when required.

If you would like to get involved in support work but cannot commit to a contract, then there are opportunities to join our register of relief workers who provide support at times based on their availability.
