The Richmond Fellowship Scotland are currently looking to increase their staff resource in the Glenrothes and surrounding area along with North East Fife and Levenmouth area and are looking for people who can help their supported individuals to achieve their own positive outcomes.
If you`re fit and healthy with a wide range of personal interests and activities, and are willing to share your community contacts with those you support, this could be the opportunity for you.
You will be part of a committed team, supporting individuals with a variety of complex needs, some of whom also have physical and/or learning disabilities. All of the people supported need support with some aspects of their life such as paying bills and general household tasks, but it can also involve support with personal care and hygiene. There are a number of people with complex needs in the service, some with limited verbal communication. Some of the individuals can get anxious and display challenging behaviour such as verbal outbursts, becoming upset or disengaging from support.
PVG checks will be required of all successful applicants; having a conviction will not necessarily debar you from working in this sector.
