Operated by ENABLE Glasgow, Fortune Works is one of Scotland’s largest social enterprises which provides meaningful opportunities for people with a learning disability within Glasgow and surrounding areas. The service combines accessible social and enterprising activities, with individualised support for people to make a positive contribution to their community.

We currently have an exciting opportunity to play a lead role in our Growing Together Project*. Our Growing Together project is aiming to expand its therapeutic horticulture service, enabling individuals with learning disabilities to have increased access to its garden service activities.

Our Growing Together Coordinator will undertake a senior role in the care and support of service users with a learning disability, staff and volunteers as well as playing a lead role within the staff team and contributing positively to the development of the Growing Together project, along with all appropriate agencies.

The post holder will work with service users to maintain and develop the existing Garden Centre service and seek out potential new volunteers, contracts and funding opportunities, as well as supporting social interaction with the general public at every opportunity.

We also require the post holder to support and supervise staff in the delivery of the Caley Awards - a Grow and Learn Project- that has a horticultural award scheme, recognising individual progress and achievement through experiential learning and personal development. The award offers the learner the opportunity to work within a structured framework, but is also flexible enough to ensure a person centred approach; enabling accessibility for people with a learning disability or complex learning need.

You will share our passion and commitment to our service users and demonstrate empathy and a strong desire to assist individuals to reach their full potential through a person-centred approach. In return, you will have the reward and satisfaction of making a real difference to people’s lives and will benefit from the excellent terms and conditions ENABLE Glasgow offers its employees. You will receive regular and comprehensive training to give you the tools to do your job and will be supported by a committed management team.
