Job Description

Based in #Cowdenbeath, our fabulous #TeamGlebe are now on the lookout for fun, caring and reliable individuals to join their team as Relief Support Workers. Working on a relief contract really gives you flexibility, you tell us when you're available and we'll look to give you shifts to fit. 

The Role

As a member of our Relief team, you'll be providing support to two men within their shared home.  Your main aim will be supporting their day to day personal needs, including meal planning, cooking, housework, shopping and medication.  As both men enjoy an active social life within the local community, we would be looking for you to be enthusiastic about participating and supporting them with their hobbies and interests including going out for meal, clothes shopping, discos and going on the bus for day trips. The gentlemen also like keeping fit by going swimming and out for walks.

Our team really pride themselves on working together to make a positive difference. By taking a person centred and outcomes focused approach, you will get to know both men as individuals, encourage their independence and help them recognise their potential. ???????There will be aspects of lone working within this job role.

About You

We recruit on values and transferrable skills, so you don't need experience or qualifications to start your career with us.  We have our own Training Academy that'll give you all the skills you'll need, including the opportunity to complete your SVQ.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited along to a Virtual Chat on Friday 2nd July 2021 followed by a Meet and Greet with the people we support.

???????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.
