Social care is a challenging and rewarding career. Our care staff work with some of Edinburgh’s most vulnerable residents. Working in Adult Social Care is a way to make a real difference to the lives of adults and it is extremely rewarding. Care workers help people to live independent, full and valued lives. They will also help maintain their dignity while helping with personal care such as bathing, dressing, meals and medication.
You don’t need previous experience in Adult Social Care to apply for the role of Social Care Assistant. Whether your employment background is in retail, tourism, manufacturing or any other industry and you fancy a career change, all you need are the right values. If you treat others with respect, listen to their needs, show compassion, understanding, patience, empathy, commitment, respect and kindness and are keen to learn that’s a great start, and we want to meet you.
We will help you to develop your skills as you become a registered carer. If you are career minded, opportunities are available for career progression. We will support you to gain formal qualifications (SVQ’s) which show you have the skills and knowledge to make a difference in the sector.
You can also become a member of a professional body (SSSC) alongside thousands of social care professionals across Scotland. The roles available cover a variety of working patterns and shifts as well as full-time and part-time opportunities. There are shifts ranging from 4 hours to 12 hours, if this fits in with what you are looking for then we would like to talk to you and see how we can support you in finding a rewarding career. We can offer you excellent training, good rates of pay, excellent holiday entitlement, a generous pension scheme and range of staff benefits.
