An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our team at Edinburgh Community Rehabilitation and Support Service. The majority of people seeking support from the service have a neurological condition. The successful candidate will support people’s needs by using the “three conversation approach” starting with a simple conversation in which they ask the person to identify what it is that they need or would like to happen.
They will get to know the person, their needs, interests, aspirations and resources. Along with colleagues they will support the person to make a plan and pull in the best person to support them with this whether that be family, friends, colleagues in the team or the wider partnership.

We have specific technology workers in the team and a mock tech house (SMART Home) and support people to be connected and independent through technology wherever possible.
The successful candidate will work in the environment that is most meaningful to the person: the person’s home, the rehabilitation base at Longstone or in a wide range of locations in the persons community. They will be able to follow a rehabilitation plan / risk assessments as set out and to feedback progress to support the ongoing review of these. Currently, due to the pandemic, staff are predominantly working from their own home and/or community.
They will be a good listener and enjoy working with people. They will have good organisational skills and be able to work independently as well as part of a team. They should have good IT skills and be able to use Word and basic excel.
