Start your day knowing you will make a difference!
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland is a leading voluntary organisation, supporting people with a broad range of needs to live in their own homes, as part of their community.
just like we would all want ourselves.
We are currently looking to increase our staff resource in the Edinburgh area and are looking for people who can help our supported individuals to achieve their own positive outcomes.
We are therefore looking to recruit new Sessional Staff to join the team to provide flexible support.
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.
You will join an experienced team full of enthusiastic staff that will mentor you, provide support and guidance and you will also receive excellent training.
