We're recruiting a dedicated and experienced Senior Care Worker with a Level 3 SVQ to join our team to provide care to our client in the Dundee area.



You'll be providing care and support to an adult female, who has Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy and Neuromuscular Scoliosis. The client is non-verbal but can communicate in her own unique way and is very sociable. She enjoys having the opportunity to go out and do something fun. She is looking for like-minded people who are very caring and can add to her life but provide the fundamental care she needs, allowing her to live as independently as she can in her own home and being able to enjoy activities and interacting with others. Our client enjoys trips to the cinema, people watching, botanics and days out on the train - for shopping or to visit the waterfront.</p>

Guarnateed hours of 36 per week, 3x12 hour block shifts either days 8am-8pm and nights 8pm-8am, with some weekend working required

We provide a comprehensive clinical training and induction programme, overseen by professional nurses, to ensure you have the skills and confidence to succeed in your role working as a Care Worker in the Specialist Team.

We are looking for people who have excellent people skills, are great communicators and can work effectively in a team as well as independently.

  • Permanent contract with block pay shift patterns
  • Free uniform & PPE
