Job Description

Our amazing #TeamParkholme in Lossiemouth are on the lookout for an outgoing and compassionate colleague with a positive nature to join them on a permanent basis as a Support Practitioner.  We also have relief contracts available if you're looking for something a bit more flexible.

You'll become part of a friendly, dedicated, fun team who supports six adults with learning and physical disabilities to live in their own shared home.  The great thing about this job is no two days are ever the same.  

Your main aim will be supporting each individual with their day to day needs, including personal care, shopping, finances, cooking, housework and medication. 

You'll also support the individuals with their hobbies and interests too, including music, films, in-house activities and arts & crafts.   As all of the individuals love to get out and be part of their local community, you’ll also find yourself getting involved in activities like swimming, ten pin bowling and horse riding, meals out and going for walks.

About You

You don't need experience to start your career with us; we recruit on values and we'll give you all the training you'll need if you're successful.  We'll pay you for your training and we'll even fund your SVQ qualification too!

All we’ll need you to bring is: -

  • A caring and compassionate attitude.
  • The ability to work well in a team.
  • Great communication and organisational skills.
  • A positive attitude with a willingness to learn.
  • A creative drive to improve the lives of the individuals you support.
  • Confidence in the use of technology.

Shift Patterns

As we're dedicated to providing the best support, tailored to the needs of each individual shift patterns usually fall within the hours of 0730-2200 hours and will include weekend and public holiday working on a rotational basis.

Company Description

With over 40 years experience delivering great care and support, Cornerstone provides tailored, individual packages of care which focus on enabling people with a variety of needs, including learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and complex care needs, to live the best possible life.
We are always flexible and responsive in meeting the ever changing needs of the people we support and work closely with individuals and families to agree what sort of support will work best for them.
This could be providing specialist accommodation on a full time basis for people with more complex needs, to just a few hours befriending a week to help an individual build confidence and make friends. We support individuals of all ages, providing respite days and clubs for children and young people with disabilities, to day care support for older people with dementia.
