Are you considering a career change or already working in the care sector. Our crisis care team in West Lothian are currently recruiting care staff, with or without care experience.

As part of our team, you will have a guaranteed hours contract, be paid a shift allowance in addition to your basic salary and at work have the use of a vehicle ( so you need a full driving licence) and phone. You will take part in our extensive training programmes and be supported to achieve an SVQ II in health and social care.

The Crisis Care team is a 24 hour service working across West Lothian – the team helps anyone who has fallen, who has pressed their pendant for assistance, or who may need some short term support with personal care and medication.

You will need to enjoy working with people, have empathy, and like a working environment which is fast paced with no two days the same. You will also need to want to be part of a team who are committed to providing good quality care in people’s homes and be willing to work a waking overnight shift as part of the rota.

If you need any further information or would like an informal discussion about the post please contact Aileen Maguire – 01506 284266 or e-mail
