About the role

Blackwood is looking for a House Supervisor for our Dumfries Supported Living House. Your duties will include providing the residents with general day to day support, monitoring their wellbeing, cooking freshly prepared meals, helping to organise, and run social activities. We can offer you a varied and fulfilling role, with all the training you need to do the job well and plenty support from your colleagues. As the house is staffed 24/7, the successful candidate will be required to work both days and nights on a 5 week rolling rota. 

About You

The successful candidate will be able to deliver a first-class housing service to vulnerable residents and to enable them to remain independent within their tenancy in order that they can continue to live within their community for as long as is practicable. You will be able to cook for groups as you will be required to provide a balanced daily meal service. Good communication skills, empathy, customer care and an ability to work on your own without supervision is a must.

Note to interested applicants

In accordance with the new immigration rules, employers must hold a licence of sponsorship to recruit all overseas candidates who do not have the right to work in the UK. It is with regret that this role does not meet the current suitability requirements set by the UKVI to enable sponsorship of migrant workers. Therefore, we cannot progress applications from candidates who require sponsorship to work in the UK.
