If so, we want you to come and work with us. Due to the continued expansion within our service, temporary opportunities have arisen for part-time Personal Carers for a period of 12 months, after which time posts will be reviewed.
Working as a Reablement Carer is a rewarding role, providing professional, essential support to help maintain people in their own homes.
What you need to have:
• excellent interpersonal skills
• a sound value base
• integrity and resilience
• commitment and reliability
• flexibility and enthusiasm

• induction and developmental training
• an hourly rate of £9.90 to £10.95

The service has both early and back shifts available across the East Locality which covers Braes, Boness and Grangemouth areas. Central Locality which covers Camelon, Towers and Bainsford and west Locality which covers Denny, Bonnybridge, Larbert & Stenhousemuir.
The working pattern is 10 days over a 3 week period with every third weekend off.
The shift times available are as follows:
Early Shift 7am to 2.30pm
Back Shift 3pm to 10.30pm
Other various shift patterns available.
Both shift times include a 20 minute unpaid break.
The contracted hours of the posts are early shift – 35 hours per week.
Applicants are asked to detail the shift times they wish to be considered for in the additional information section on the application form.
