“I’ve noticed a difference since LifeCare visits started. When I call Dad, he is more upbeat and chattier than he has been in ages.”

Lifecare is a forward-thinking, growing charity that supports people 50+ across Edinburgh. Our Outreach service supports people to live in their own homes and be independent for as long as possible. You will make a big difference to people’s lives by offering companionship and opportunities to participate in community life, as well as assisting with household tasks and providing personal care where required. Most importantly, you will ensure people feel special and cared for. If you are caring, compassionate and want to work for a charity that also cares about you, come join our growing team.

As well as a competitive annual salary, our valued team also benefits from:

  • 35 days paid annual leave (pro rata)
  • Employer pension contribution, including salary exchange schemes
  • Death In service cover
  • Accident insurance
  • All travel time and expenses are covered.
  • Access to paid training and development opportunities including SVQ’s
  • A supportive team culture.

Previous experience working in social care would be an advantage, but this is not essential. Your enthusiasm, caring nature and willingness to learn are just as important.
