About Sycamore Fife

Red Squirrel is our newest residential house for children who are unable to live with their own families. Aberlour is Being Brave for these children, fulfilling The Promise to provide a safe, loving home for the three children who live in the house, enabling them, over time, to reach their full potential. We do not seek to provide a quick fix for the children but to secure transformational change which secures real results and gives our team a really rewarding job experience.

What we are looking for

We are looking for an exceptional group of relief workers to provide ad hoc cover when staff are on holiday or are off sick. This work is offered on a casual, hourly paid basis. Relief Workers are a vital part of our team, helping to ensure that full cover is available throughout the year and ensuring that our Residential Workers get the essential breaks they need to recharge their batteries and come back to work refreshed and ready to provide the best possible support to the young people.

In return for taking on this essential role, you will work alongside a dedicated, supportive staff team and be offered valuable training and development opportunities. Of course, if you are a good match for the role there will be the opportunity for you to apply for a substantive role when available.

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.
