Do you have a passion for caring and making a difference to people’s lives? We have an exciting opportunity for you!

You'll become a professionally registered practitioner who'll provide a lifeline to our most vulnerable residents within East Renfrewshire. 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 within their own home.

Our trained staff deliver a vital service, which enhances the quality of service users' lives, including administering medication, supporting with personal care tasks, using specialist equipment and keeping clear and accurate records of care delivery.

No previous experience or qualifications are necessary. All training will be provided by our in-house training team to give you the skills and confidence to enable you to succeed.

Our Care at Home service is delivered 365 days a year and we have contracts of 17.5 or 35 hours per week available across the peak operating hours of the service. Shifts are 8am -1pm and/or 5pm -10pm on a 4 days on/4 days off work pattern.

If you're not able to commit to a regular work pattern, then please still get in touch, as we can discuss how you could potentially join our bank of staff, who cover absence within the service when the need arises.

The hourly rate starts at £13.88 rising to £14.65 per hour. Enhancements of 15% are paid for weekend and evening working. Working with us, you'll also receive generous annual leave entitlement, access to the local government pension scheme and a range of attractive benefits.

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.

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. In addition to this, if you have lived or worked in any country outside the UK in the past 10 years, there may be a requirement for an overseas police check.

Please note – all applicants will be asked to provide proof of their right to work in the UK, and any offer of employment will be conditional upon verifying documentary evidence before employment commences. Further information can be found here:
