HSCP Recruitment

We are currently recruiting a Senior Support Worker in Campbeltown, and for  casual/bank workers to join our dedicated Learning Disability teams across all of our registered locations:

  • Greenwood/Woodlands in Campbeltown
  • ASIST in Dunoon
  • PHOENIX in Bute
  • Lochside in Lochgilphead
  • Lorne in Oban

We will routinely recruit every 3-4 months through online and face to face recruitment to ensure that we have adequate team cover

You should be a team player, empathetic, passionate about support and have transferrable skills

Experience would be great, but a firm value base to support our people to reach their potential is more important.

We are support workers, not carers. We “do with” and not “do for”

Casual/Bank workers are a vital part of our team and are developed the same way. You would receive full induction and support in this vital role. 

Lessons learned as a result of the pandemic have highlighted diverse approaches which have been developed. Less emphasis on building based, group and college support. More diverse outreach/distance/social support using technology. Short pieces of support work with some “revolving door” supports for diverse individuals. More emphasis on support enveloping the individual. Support structures based on individual requirements rather than people we support being placed in “labels” and “boxes”

Rhiannon is a support worker at the Phoenix on Bute.
