Support Practitioner, The Richmond Fellowship Scotland – Monday April 6

The Richmond Fellowship Scotland are currently looking to recruit Support Practitioners due the acquisition of new services in the Dumfries and Lockerbie / Annan areas.

Applicants must be drivers and, for some posts, your own car will be required.

Support Practitioners are fully trained by the learning and development team prior to starting, which initially consists of three classroom-based sessions as well as the opportunity to shadow current Support Practitioners in their day-to-day role.

After this initial training there will always be opportunities to further your learning during your time with The Richmond Fellowship Scotland. As such, to apply for this vacancy you would require no previous experience in the Care sector.

The Richmond Fellowship Scotland provides personalised and outcome-focused support to over 2800 individuals either in their own homes, shared accommodation or care home environments across Scotland, as the country’s largest provider of social care. They support individuals with a variety of different needs such as physical and/or learning disabilities, mental health, alcohol or substance abuse and autism. Some of the people they support can present challenging behaviour or require a high level of personal care. Moving and handling will be a part of this role.

They can offer either Full-Time (35 hours), Part-Time (Various hours) or Bank (Ad Hoc) contracts depending on our requirements at the time. As a Support Practitioner you could be expected to work weekends, shift patterns, sleepovers and on-call if required.
