About Aberlour Options Fife Residential Glenrothes

At Aberlour we listen to understand what our young people want and need within our local area. As such, our service in Glenrothes supports young people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live and thrive within the local community.

What we are looking for....

We are looking for someone who is passionate about ensuring our young people live their best lives and are valued members of their community. Whilst not without its challenges and demands, this is a highly rewarding role. We are looking for someone who will contribute to the leadership, management and development of services for children, young people and their families in line with agreed objectives and assist with service review and evaluation.

You will have relevant experience of working with children and young people with a disability and/or autism in a community or residential setting and understand the impact of disability on inclusion. You are required to meet the qualifications requirement for this post which is at SCQF Level 8 (e.g. HNC, SVQ Level 4). This post requires you to register with the Scottish Social Services Council as a Residential Child Care Worker with Supervisory Responsibilities.

There is an expectation that you will work 18.75 hours per week management time, and 18.75 hours on shift, offering direct support to the young people as part of our 4 week rolling residential rota, which includes evenings, weekends, nights and public holidays. There is also the requirement to undertake the occasional sleep over.

At Aberlour we want to make sure every child and young person has the love, support and opportunity they need to reach their potential. If you share the same vision, we want you to join our team.

What we offer...

As well as a supportive team and excellent training opportunities, we want all our employees to feel valued and rewarded for the vital work they do.
