The Mungo Foundation is a well-established charitable organisation, with over 40 years of experience supporting vulnerable individuals across Scotland. We employ over 700 staff, supporting approximately 1500 people a year, across a diverse array of services. Our services are tailored to the needs of each individual we work with and together we work hard to improve their quality of life.

Our Buttercups House Project based in the Bishopbriggs area of East Dunbartonshire, provides respite/short breaks support for up to three children and young people with varying degrees of disability aged between six and 18 years old.

We are looking to recruit a committed and self-motivated Part Time Childcare Practitioner to join our busy team.
