Do you have a passion for caring and making a difference to people’s lives? If so we are looking for dedicated and conscientious individuals to join our care service teams across East Renfrewshire to provide a range of planned long term support / support following a period in hospital and unplanned emergency support.
The roles are demanding but hugely rewarding, supporting adults and older people facing a range of challenges (including dementia, physical disability and ill health) with daily living activities, to enable them to live safely and independently within their own home.
Whilst proven care experience, in either a paid or voluntary capacity, is desirable we would welcome applications from people who are caring and compassionate, with a positive attitude and a genuine desire to provide high quality care and support to people living in their own homes.
There will be a requirement to be registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) or to be eligible for registration from commencement of employment in the appropriate category for adults. As a Council employee you will benefit from good terms and conditions, enhanced payments and automatic access to the Councils pension scheme. A robust induction programme provided before commencing the role.
This post is considered Regulated Work with Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. It is an offence therefore to apply if you are barred from working with protected adults.
Possession of a clean current driving license is desirable
Employees with a contract of employment for 3 months or more are automatically included in our Local Government Pension Scheme which is a career average scheme. Pension contribution rates are based on a tiered system determined by your annual full time equivalent pensionable pay. For example for those earning up to and including £21,800 the contribution rate you pay is 5.5% of your salary. The council pays the rest of the cost of providing your benefits. This amount varies but it's always enough to make sure your pension can be paid and will be at least 19.3% of your pay. In addition you get tax relief on your contributions - the tax you pay on your salary is calculated after your pension contributions are deducted.
Other main pension benefits include a pension that increases each year in line with price inflation and the ability to exchange some of your pension to provide a tax free lump sum. Further details can be found in the attached document General Information for Applicants or via the Strathclyde Pension Fund website www.spfo.org.uk.
