We have vacancies within our mental health care and support service. The posts are for 36 hours per week and will include shift work and weekends (plus working time payments). We are looking for experienced support workers to provide visiting support to adults and young people who have an experience of mental health difficulties and have spent periods of time within the Royal Edinburgh Hospital. Post holders will be required to develop support plans and identify support outcomes. This post involves considerable periods of lone working within service users’ homes and substantial travel across the city.

This post is considered Regulated Work with Vulnerable Children and/or Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.  For roles in grade 5 or above, annual increments in our contribution zones are dependent on achieving agreed performance goals.
