Our amazing #TeamBlackwood are now on the look out for a bubbly, friendly and flexible new *female colleague to join them in Dundee on a permanent full-time basis.

Job Description

You'll become part of a fun, friendly team who provide support to two ladies with complex support needs within their own residential setting.  

The great thing about this job it that no two days are ever the same.  As a Support Practitioner, you'll support both ladies with their day to day personal needs, including meal planning, cooking, housework, personal care, moving and assisting and medication.

With both ladies enjoying being part of their local community, we're looking for you to be enthusiastic about participating and supporting them with their hobbies and interests which include arts & crafts, day trips, baking, swimming and going for walks.  

About you

Here at Cornerstone, we recruit on Values and transferrable skills; we're more interested in what you as a person will bring to our team.  We'll pay you for your training and will even fund your SVQ qualification too!

As both ladies have their own mobility car, we are ideally looking for someone who has a full driving license, however, this isn't a deal breaker for the right candidate.

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 approach to learning
  • A drive to improve the lives of the individuals you support
  • Confidence in the use of computers

Shift Patterns

As we're dedicated to providing around the clock support tailored to the needs of each individual, shift patterns do include early mornings, days, evenings, sleepovers and weekends and public holidays on a rotational basis.

Early application is encouraged as we will review applications throughout the advertising period and reserve the right to close the advert early.

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.
