*New Development - West Harbour*

We are near completion of an exciting, brand-new housing support service in the Granton area of Edinburgh. We are therefore looking for wonderful people to make these houses into homes!

In preparation for the tenants moving into their flats from May 2024, we are now building our team of support staff. This is an exciting opportunity to work with the supported individuals to make sure their move to their new home is as positive as possible, and help them to settle into their new homes, and live happily there. Not only will you be directly supporting autistic people to ensure they have a great quality of life, but you will be part of the team who develop this brand new service.

Experience is not essential, but a genuine passion to making a difference to the lives of autistic people, as well as a positive attitude, is key to being successful in this role.

Benefits of working with us include:

• Competitive Salary - £11.97 to £12.40 per hour (under review)

• Sleepover rate paid at £10.90 per hour

• 31 days Annual Leave Entitlement, including bank holidays

• Your birthday off every year, to treat yourself!

• Ongoing Learning & Development throughout your Support Work role

• Opportunity to undertake SVQ Level 3 qualification

• Career Progression Opportunities

• Employee Assistance Programme

• Auto-enrolment pension scheme

• Cycle to Work scheme

• Medicash Healthcare Plan

• Eligibility to become a Blue Light Card Member for online & high street discounts

As a Support Worker you will promote the positive health and well-being of the people that you support, enabling them to have a meaningful life and encouraging them to live as independently as possible.

Given the nature of this role, successful applicants must register with the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) or equivalent regulatory body.

This is a truly rewarding role, with the opportunity for you to develop your skills and knowledge and fulfil your career aspirations.
