Do you have great all-round communication skills, enthusiasm and thrive in a busy environment? Do you have a “can do” attitude and want to work with adults who have a learning disability and sight loss? Are you motivated and rewarded by making a positive difference to someone’s quality of life?
If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to be part of the RNIB Scotland Visual Impairment and Learning Disability/Complex Needs Services (VILD). We offer unique, personalised care and support services for people with sight loss and complex needs.
Working with VILD you will learn how to identify hidden sight loss. You will be involved in helping the customer to create their own individual care plan and you will support and encourage development of choice, control and confidence.
This position requires someone with strong values who can provide emotional, social, personal and physical support. You will enable people to develop new skills and participate in activities of their choice including, baking, sensory interaction, walking, music, art, and other various outings.
Applicants must be aged 21 or over and a driver. It is essential that you are able to travel throughout the area/region in a timely fashion to fulfil customer and service requirements. If using your own car, a full clean driving licence with business insurance will be required. This is to comply with RNIB insurers requirements.
In return, we can offer an attractive benefits package including a contributory pension scheme, paid annual leave (pro rata) plus public holidays. You will also benefit from a wide range of specialist induction training and have the possibility of commencing SVQ 3 following initial year contract.
