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.
