Closing Date: These positions will close when suitable applicants have been found
Each person we support has different support needs, so your role may include assisting them with various aspects of personal care, moving and handling or positive behavioural support whilst expanding their social networks and connections.
ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic and vibrant organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people with learning disabilities and we have full and part time opportunities for you to support people in Scotland to make the most of their lives.
We have various opportunities in Edinburgh and the Lothians to support people who have learning disabilities to live independently in their own homes or take part in activities we take for granted. And, who knows, it could make a difference to your life as well.
What might a day in this job look like?
Every day is different at ENABLE Scotland and your working day will depend entirely on the person you are supporting and no matter what you do, it will always be supporting that person to achieve their personal goals. So, one day you could be supporting someone to go swimming at the local leisure centre and the next you could be supporting them to achieve their goal of using public transport on their own. Some of our PAs even support people when they go on holiday which could be to the Isle of Arran or Lanzarote!
What will I learn?
What’s also great about ENABLE Scotland is that we believe in developing all our staff and provide an extensive training programme, combined with a commitment to create career development opportunities including SVQ Level 2
What Qualifications / Qualities are required?
