About The Role

Edinburgh

25 HOURS PER WEEK

 

This post would involve working some of our adult services including Claire. Let us introduce you to Claire:

Claire loves spending time with her staff and is a big rugby fan. She enjoys spending time watching movies, going for walks, and keeping in touch with her family and friends. A typical day would be supporting Claire with all of her personal care, medication, taking care of her home and supporting her to do the things she enjoys in life. Sadly, it’s not always possible for Claire to enjoy what many people would consider these ‘simple pleasures’ without proper, dedicated support.

Shifts would be around 5 hours and include days, evenings, weekends and sleepovers

That is why Claire needs you! Will you bring your best so that Claire can live her best life?

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.

About You

If you think you share the same interests and have the commitment, dedication, and above all, desire to support Claire to get the most out of life; then please apply now!

ENABLE Scotland needs you and your values to help us create an equal society for every person who has a learning disability.
