We are looking to expand our relief pool for our Options Glenrothes Residential service.

Our service will be home to 3 young people aged 16 plus. Working patterns will include days, nights, weekends and public holidays. Our rota has been drafted with the needs of the young people at heart and shifts will be longer in order to keep consistency for our young people.

We have a strong reputation in supporting young people with high levels of complex needs, supporting them to grow, learn and maximise their potential. We feel every child has the right to flourish. Our Relief Young People’s Workers play a fundamental role in ensuring that the young people they work with have the best possible experience in working towards their objectives in line with their care plan, supporting children to progress within their individual outcomes. Whilst not without its challenges and demands, this is a highly rewarding role, where the work we do has a demonstrable impact on each young person's progress. Using a person-centred approach you will provide enabling support ensuring the highest level of physical, personal, and emotional care to support the families in their daily living and within the local community.

Our relief workers play a crucial role in supporting our team. This work is offered on a casual, hourly paid basis to provide cover during staff absence and/or particularly busy periods. Ideally, you will have experience of direct work with children and families and/or experience of working with children or adults with a learning disability and/or an autism spectrum condition.

You will receive a planned and supported induction consisting of a varied training programme; including CALM Training, Child Protection Training and support to complete an SVQ3 if required. You will be working alongside a highly motivated and skilled team to provide a personalised service for our young people.
