Job Requirements/Description
Care Support Workers (Personal Assistant) - Driver Location: Perth, PH2 8DX. Salary: £10 per hour (£(phone number removed) market supplement). Contract: 32 hours per week - Flexibility across 7 days, including sleepovers. Personal Assistants have the most important role within ENABLE Scotland by making a positive difference every day to the lives of the people we support. No two days are the same for our Personal Assistants but what we can guarantee is that you will be supporting someone with a learning disability to achieve their goals and outcomes - whatever they may be! 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 creates a bespoke team around every individual we support, and our team of Personal Assistants work collaboratively to ensure the safety, wellbeing and aspirations of the people we support are met. The Best in You Brings Out the Best in Me The people we support have many varied interests and hobbies and have many of the same dreams and aspirations as we do; they just too often do not get the opportunity to experience these same opportunities. A career with ENABLE Scotland is as rewarding as it is diverse, Personal Assistants at their best have the potential to truly bring out the best in the people we support. Let us introduce you to some of the people you would be supporting: Ben, Andrew, Thomas and Brian All 4 men love being outdoors, going for long walks (especially on those rare sunny days in Scotland) and just being as generally active as possible. Ben's support could be supporting him to do some housework before heading out to the shops to buy some groceries, then heading off in his mobility car to visit some horses in a nearby field or to his work placement on a local allotment. Then a trip to the gym for a wee workout, then home to support with dinner preparation. Support with Andrew could be a game of football in a local park, a trip to the local pub and a chat or a browse around the shops. Supporting Thomas might be a long bike ride somewhere scenic, stopping for a snack and drink, before heading home. And Brian loves a walk in the fresh air, followed by a pub lunch, before some support to carry out his work in a local charity shop. Your role would be to support each of these men to carry out tasks and activities that they want to do, whilst supporting them to make healthy and informed choices. That is why we need you! Will you bring your best so that Ben, Andrew, Thomas and Brian can live their best life?
