A career with ENABLE Scotland is as rewarding as it is diverse, Personal Assistants at their best have the potential to truly bring out the best in the people we support.

Let us tell you a little about Nicky:

Nicky is a young man that is moving into his own home. He is looking for people to join his team who are motivated, active, committed and confident to help him achieve his goals and live a life he chooses.

Nicky requires support with all aspects of his care including personal care and household tasks, as well as support to maintain his health and wellbeing. He loves home cooked meals and especially likes spicy foods and curries, therefore having an interest in cooking would be an advantage.

Nicky has many interests and will give new things a try, even if it is just once. Some of his interests include horse riding, bowling, messy play and watching football matches on the TV. He also loves watching games shows, Disney, action packed movies and Glasgow based comedies including ‘Still Game’. He also likes listening to loud music, whether it be heavy metal, opera or people playing instruments.

Sadly, it’s not always possible for Nicky to enjoy what many people would consider these ‘simple pleasures’ without proper, dedicated support.

About You

If you think you share the same interests and have the commitment, dedication, and above all, desire to support Nicky to get the most out of life; then please apply now!

Ellie will often start singing songs that she makes up on the spot which can be about anything such as ASDA or chocolate but they are always catchy! Ellie has a good sense of humour and likes to chance her luck with people as she finds it hilarious, she loves the song 'Rhythm is a dancer' except she sings 'Ellie is a chancer'

Jamie enjoys going to the park for long walks and adventures, swimming, bowling and museums. He has many interests and will give things a try even if it is just once. Some of his interests include enjoying music and will participating inmusical activities. He also enjoys sensory and messy play, arts and crafts and baking and cooking.

Dave requires support with all aspects of his care including personal care and household tasks, as well as support to maintain his health and wellbeing. He loves home cooked mealsand especially likes spicy foods and curries, therefore having an interest in cooking would be an advantage.
