Interested in Supporting People in their lives here at Loch Arthur?
We are looking for someone who can join us and assist in caring for and supporting some of the people who live here, growing into taking co-responsibility for a shared house.
We are a vibrant Camphill Community sharing life and work with people with learning disabilities. Most of us live in seven shared households which are home to around 75 people, 28 of whom are people we support. We have families who have been here for a long time, people who have recently joined us to make their home here and a small but growing team of employed people who support us too.
We would like to hear from you if you are interested in joining us in this live-out, employed role, supporting all aspects of life in a shared house and –
· you are experienced in care & support and / or feel you have the openness and aptitude to learn about our life and work-sharing approach,
· you are interested in building your skills to be able to take on the responsibility for aspects of a shared household
· you have good communications skills and are able to work well as part of a team,
· you are willing to support in a range of ways, including with some personal care.
Some people will need help with personal care or to go shopping, and some may need regular emotional support in order to cope with daily life. There are also administrative tasks to carry out relating to providing support and there are all the domestic tasks which go with a large household.
This role would be best carried by one person, but we would consider job sharing for the right people. The successful applicant will be required to undergo clearance for working with vulnerable adults (PVG) and a driving licence is essential.
