It’s exciting and rewarding work, and we’re full of pride and passion for what we do. Since the early days, we’ve grown to provide many innovative and bespoke care services to thousands of people across England and Scotland.
 
We want to provide support based on the principles of choice, dignity and respect. This resonates in our vision of ‘Your Life, Your Choice’ and our strategy ‘Best Lives Possible’. We have strong values and we’re proud to pioneer new ways of delivering social care to stand out in our sector.
 
In the past two years, we have won or made the shortlist for over 100 national and regional awards! We are also focused on our people. Our Support Workers are dedicated and passionate about going ‘the extra mile’ for the people we support and in return, we go the extra mile for them by investing in pay, recognition, wellbeing and continued professional and personal development. We will provide you with all the training, support and personal protective equipment you need in your role and will help you develop, should you decide you want to develop your career with us.
Who you’ll be supporting & more about the role:
Are you a positive and motivated person who loves going the extra mile to improve the lives of others? 

Is it important for you to have a satisfying job where you feel supported?

If this sounds like you, maybe a Support Worker role with an award-winning charity is the change you’ve been looking for!

At our Peterhead services, we support vulnerable adults living in the community to live the best lives possible by providing person-centred support to help them live as independently as possible.

Each person we support has their own support plan, which details what support they would need, so you can expect to provide support in all aspects of their daily lives.  This might include helping with personal care, medication administration, financial support, attending community groups, preparing meals and attending social activities.
 
We are looking for flexible individuals who are keen to support people to try new activities and provide positive reassurance and guidance to help improve independent living skills.  

We provide support 24 hours a day from Monday - Sunday and all contracted staff would be required to work some weekends.
 
A UK driving license is not mandatory for this role, but would be a great skill to have!

We are currently recruiting for predominantly full-time roles, but would consider part-time and bank roles for the right candidate.
Your values:

The people we support like to be supported by people who respect them and their homes, but who also like to have fun!

We like people who are reliable and honest and are able to remain calm under pressure, so they can support people effectively and build fantastic relationships.
