The people who use our services tell us we’ve changed their lives. Our employees tell us they’re supported, enthusiastic and have opportunities to develop meaningful careers. We’re looking for someone great to join our team.

We have opportunities for full time and part time Support Workers (day and night) in our exciting new person centred service in the west of Edinburgh where we support school leavers make a positive transition from childhood to adulthood. We help them to lead ordinary lives, participating in their local communities and activities of their choice. This means creating a safe, secure and supportive environment and empowering them to take charge of their own lives and live life to the full.

Our staff have come from all walks of life; some have a faith and some don’t. We don’t want you to be a cog in a wheel. We want you to bring your skills and experience either from the care sector or gained elsewhere - we know they are transferable. Your journey won’t stop there though as, using the strengths of a large diverse organisation, we’ll support you to develop new skills and qualifications and give you the opportunities to put them into practice.

We’re all about the people we support. We want them to achieve the highest quality of life they can and you’ll be more important in that than you know. You’ll need to be able to discern the person behind the behaviour and be able to develop strong supportive relationships with colleagues

There’s space to be creative and find ways to help the people who use our services achieve their goals so when you see a problem you’ll need to have the heart to fix it.

What’s more, you will be part of one of Scotland’s largest voluntary social work organisations. At CrossReach, we offer quality care and counselling to a wide range of people in need. But the real story of CrossReach is the work that our staff do: reaching out and making a real difference to the lives of others. If you’d like to join them, we look forward to hearing from you.

As we do our work in Christ’s name you must be respectful of our Christian Ethos and be able to work within it. You do not need to share our faith. This post is subject to PVG Membership.

Salary is pro rata of 38.5 hours per week for part time hours.
