This job is all about open doors. About working for an organisation that opens its doors to anyone who needs support. About an open-door culture where we all have each other’s backs. And about opening doors to opportunity. Learning skills. Assuming responsibilities. Making a visible difference.

This is a non sleeping role where you will support our most vulnerable people through the night. 

With experience in the sector (recent or not), you know what care means to our residents. Whether it’s practical support with a friendly face, acting as a key worker, taking charge of personal plans and quality audits or undertaking SVQ assessments. But it’s also a role for a leader, as you’ll allocate work, organise rotas, performance management and deliver training to staff. You’ll even contribute to our quality improvement through the plan.

And, while you help us continually improve, we’ll support you own improvement. So, while you’ll need care sector experience and a relevant SVQ level 3 to join us, you can soon look forward to adding to both with ongoing training and professional qualifications. This role could also just be the start, as you’ll be part of Scotland’s largest voluntary social care charity, giving you a huge range of career paths and possibilities. 

At CrossReach, we help everyone we can, whatever their circumstances. Across our 60-plus services, we have a diverse 1,600-strong team made up of school leavers, people on their second (or third) careers and seasoned care professionals like you. But we’re all united by a common purpose: to improve and enrich people’s lives. 

This is a part time post for 2 nights per week.

So, if you’re looking for the next step in your care career, our door is open.


We also offer you a range of benefits that you would expect from an organisation that support others.

Firstly, there is access to a wide range of exclusive retail and leisure discounts through our rewards scheme and the Blue Light Discount card. We also ensure that your future and that of your loved ones is secured with a generous contributory pension plan and death in service benefit.  Balancing work and family are made easier with our suite of enhanced family friendly policies and your health and wellness are prioritised with access to our health cash plan, giving you cash back for a wide range of health treatments. We even have access to a care concierge service to assist you with life's challenges, providing invaluable support when you need it most.

But we also know that your training and development is important to you, and as well as a contribution to your professional membership fees, we are keen to support you in making the right steps to learn, grow and develop in ways that are right for you. 

CrossReach has been at the forefront of high quality social care for over 150 years, providing loving care to people of all ages and supporting them to live life to the full whatever their circumstances. During that time, we have worked hard to understand the needs of the people who turn to us for help and with them have been at the forefront of pioneering services which have literally changed thousands of lives for the better.

Today we are one of the largest social care providers in Scotland, with experience across a broad range of services. We are still growing, learning, and improving, thanks to the incredible people we have the privilege to support, and all those who support us. We are part of the Church of Scotland and aim to provide social care services and specialist resources in Christ’s name to further the caring work of the Church to people in challenging circumstances.
