Support Worker (West Dumbarton)

Job description
Join us at RNIB and take a lead in providing a range of support services to adults who have sight problems, learning disabilities and other complex needs.

We're looking for caring individuals who want to make a real difference, whilst enjoying a work life that offers variety each day.

You'll play a key role in enabling our customers to live as independently as possible and engage in activities that are so often taken for granted. You will support our customers located in Clydebank and surrounding area within their own homes and in the community.

It really is a career like no other! No working day is the same but you could be helping customers to:
* develop their everyday living skills, like cooking meals, cleaning, shopping and travelling
* take part in social, leisure, learning, and work based opportunities.
* develop their potential in line with their aspirations

You just need to:
* want to make a difference
* be fun to be with
* have patience and be calm under pressure as well as sociable, caring and supportive
* work as part of a team to provide excellent person-centred support to our residents and their families
* have good problem solving and communications skills
* prioritise your workload effectively

Experience of working in a social care or residential environment is desirable but not essential.

We'll provide you with full training. After a thorough induction, you'll shadow an experienced Support Worker, enjoy ongoing training and we will help you achieve SVQ 3 required for your registration with SSSC.

Above all, if you are passionate about making a positive difference to those affected with sight loss, we'd love to hear from you.

We have got a range of opportunities with hours to suit you. Hours of work are on a rota basis over 7 days including evenings and weekends. Occasional sleepovers may be required.

If you would like to apply for this great job opportunity please review the documents linked below, then select "Apply Online" at the bottom of this page and upload your CV and cover letter. Guidance for completion can be found on each page

We're the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and we're here for everyone affected by sight loss. Working for us means working for one of the UK's biggest charities, supporting almost two million people living with sight loss in the UK.

One of our core values is to be led by blind and partially sighted people and we involve our customers in recruitment. Please be advised that your anonymised application may be shared internally with those involved in the recruitment process.

RNIB is committed to being an Equal Opportunities organisation and we welcome applications from people with sight loss.
