Sessional Support Workers (SSW) for Children and Young People
Sessional Support Workers (SSW) for Adults

Based at the SBH Scotland Dan Young Building in Cumbernauld as well as groups and outings across the West of Scotland.

Zero Hours Contract paid at £10.51 to £11.74 per hour dependent on experience. Plus travel expenses paid.

SSW for Children and Young People: More often it will be evening and weekend work with occasional ‘office hours’.

SSW for Adults: Office hours will be required as well as evening and weekend work.

This is an exciting time to join the Direct Services Team at Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland as we are developing and expanding services in response to the demand from those affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.

SBH Scotland is building up a bank of Sessional Support Workers to assist either our children and young people or our adult members in a variety of settings. Reporting to the Senior Family Resource Worker, our Sessional Workers may be providing 1 to 1 support or helping to run an engaging active or social group work. Your hours may be spent at our support centre in Cumbernauld or out and about at a variety of exciting locations across the West of Scotland.

As a sessional support worker you will be required to work out with normal office hours depending on the activity or event. Although some office hours will be required especially for the SSW Adult positions. Hours will vary each month.

An education of SVQ3 of relevant knowledge/experience would be desirable, although not essential. The post will be ideally suited to a person with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to develop constructive working relationships with identified children, adults and families as well as a wide range of carers and partner agencies.

The ideal candidate will be proactive, resourceful and willing to contribute to the team in the interests of overall service aims.

Own car and a full driving licence is essential.
