Job Description

Looking for a rewarding part-time job where you can make a difference in the lives of others every day?  We're looking for new *female colleagues to join our amazing #TeamDundee on a permanent part-time (16 hours per week) and relief basis.  So, if you're caring and patient with a positive attitude and a good sense of humour, you could be just who we're looking for!  

The Role

The great thing about this job is no two days are ever the same.   Your main aim will be to provide support to the individuals we support in either our Springhill or Blackwood services.  You will assist in all aspects of their daily lives,  including finances, cooking, shopping, housework & personal care.  You'll also get involved in supporting them with hobbies and interests too, some of which include going for walks, days trips, dominoes, arts & crafts, boccia, going to the cinema and eating out.
 
About You

Don't have experience, don't worry, here at Cornerstone we recruit on values and transferrable skills. It's not about what experience and qualifications you have, we're interested in what you as an individual will bring to our team. We'll pay you for your training and give you all the practical skills you'll need.  We'll even fund your SVQ qualification too.  

 

?????????????????????All we 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 computers

 

Shift Patterns

As we are dedicated to providing around the clock support that is tailored to the needs of each individual, we will need you to be flexible as shift patterns for our services will include early mornings, days, evenings, weekends, sleepovers and public holidays.

Our sleepover shifts do not form part of your contracted hours.  You will receive an additional payment of £84 for every sleepover shift that you work!  

Sound interesting?  What are you waiting for?  Apply today, we can't wait to hear from you!

We are looking to fill these vacancies as soon as possible so reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we find suitable candidates before the closing date.  Please apply early to avoid disappointment.

Successful candidates will be required to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme and be committed to working towards an SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare with the support from our Training Academy.

???????If you're successful in joining our team, we will need you to register with the SSSC within 6 months of starting your employment with us.

Cornerstone welcomes applications from all sections of the community and actively seeks to increase the diversity of our workforce.
