Are you looking for a rewarding new job where you can make a difference?  We're on the lookout for flexible, caring and enthusiastic *female colleagues to join our amazing #TeamKeswick in Dundee on a permanent and fixed term part-time basis.

The Role

You'll become part of a warm, friendly and dedicated team who supports two fun loving ladies with profound learning and physical disabilities who live in their own shared home. The great thing about this job is no two days are ever the same.  

Your main aim will be supporting each of the ladies with their day to day needs, including personal care, shopping, finances, cooking, housework and medication. 

You'll also provide support with their hobbies and interests too, including music, films, in-house activities, baking, going for walks and arts & crafts. As both ladies love to get out and be part of their local community you’ll also find yourself getting involved in activities like going to the cinema, discos and day trips too.

About You

You don't need experience to start your career with us; we recruit on values and we'll give you all the training you'll need if you're successful. We'll even put you through your SVQ qualification too!

​​​​​​​

All we’ll need you to bring is: -

  • A caring and compassionate attitude
  • The ability to work well in a team
  • Great communication and organisational skills
  • A positive attitude with a willingness to learn
  • A creative drive to improve the lives of the individuals you support
  • Confidence in the use of computers

Shift Patterns

As we're dedicated to providing around the clock support tailored to the needs of each individual, shift patterns include early mornings, days, evenings, waking nights, weekends and public holidays.

When working a waking night shift, you will be paid an additional £2.50 per hour.

Sound interesting? What are you waiting for? Apply today, we can't wait to hear from you!

Successful candidates will be required to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme and be committed to working towards an SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare with the support from our Training Academy.

If you’re successful in joining our team, we will need you to register with the SSSC within 6 months of starting your employment with us.
