Relief Worker – Perthshire

Closing Date: 5 November 2020 (we would encourage applicants to apply as soon as possible)

About this role

In October 2019 we launched a new floating support service in Perthshire, providing housing support for people in the city of Perth and north Perthshire in partnership with Perth & Kinross Council, CATH and Turning Point Scotland. 

We are looking for Relief Support Workers to join our team to help us to deliver a positive, recovery focused service to people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness. The service supports people where and when they need it and will involve evening and weekend working to fit with people’s needs. 

We would welcome applicants who view partnerships as essential in helping people with multiple needs find positive opportunities in their lives, who are up for testing new ways of working and can stick with people through challenging times. Many of the people we support experience homelessness as a consequence of the challenges they have experienced; mental and physical health problems, low expectations, poverty, trauma, addictions or abuse. Our staff support people to be confident, optimistic, hopeful and have the resilience to be independent. It’s not an easy job, but it’s a brilliant one.

The relief rate of pay is currently £9.39 per hour and works on a flexible basis to fit around your other commitments and the needs of the people we support. 

In return we ask for your compassion, creativity, flexibility, eternal optimism and positive approach as well as a commitment to living the values of our organisation with your colleagues, partners and crucially with the people we support.
