“Making every day a good one.”
• Rewarding work with real job satisfaction
• Opportunity to bring in new ideas
• Generous benefits package.
At Whinnieknowe in Nairn, we help older people to live every day to the full by providing a range of activities all aimed at enhancing their quality of life. From craft to painting a picture or joining in a sing-song and much more, you’ll provide plenty of opportunity to get involved through focused activity, both here and on minibus outings.
An understanding of working with older people, and how activities can promote self-worth and achievement is just the start. You’ll bring enthusiasm and energy to work with the rest of the team and volunteers to organise activities and outings. Your friendly, encouraging approach to exploring ideas for projects will involve everyone in the process. We’re proud of our innovative work here and although direct experience is not essential, a structured approach to keeping notes and reports is required.
In return, you can look forward to ongoing training and development - not only so you can do a great job, but to help you build your career with us too. There’s also an excellent benefits package that includes an employer contributory pension and generous holiday allowance.
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.
Applicants are required to have a Christian faith and be able to work within and uphold our Christian Ethos. This post is subject to PVG Membership.
