• Establish and maintain excellent working relationships with carers, clients and colleagues.
• Maintain accurate records both electronically and on paper
• Have excellent communication skills
• Capable of ensuring the most efficient use of Home Care’s staffing resource to ensure that the quality of Service delivery is maintained at all times.
You will receive appropriate training for the role and be supported by experienced colleagues and management. You will be listened to and appreciated; any ideas and suggestions about the role will be readily accepted and openly discussed.
You should hold a qualification at SCQF 5/6 i.e., SVQ2, National 5, Standard Grades, O Grade, Intermediate 2, SVQ3, Higher, National Certificate, Foundation Apprenticeship in a relevant subject area OR, where this is not held, you should have a minimum of 2 years’ previous relevant experience.
