Due to expansion of our services and in order to increase our caseload capacity, PPP’s Homelink department are seeking to recruit additional Health Co-ordinators/Support workers to join our well established team in order to meet demand in the local community.

If you are interested in helping to teach independent life skills to service users to allow them to manage their tenancy, teach them skills such as budgeting, healthy lifestyle, cooking, decorating and making their house a home so they can maintain their tenancy without support, this role could be perfect for you!

Applicants must have the ability to engage with people, be enthusiastic and make their clients feel valued, respected and empowered. Candidates will also participate in multi-agency work, working alongside the housing sector, Women’s Aid, social workers, health visitors, North Highland College staff, Job Centre Plus, and other identified agencies to provide a holistic approach to your client’s needs. Successful candidates will be part of a multi team consisting of housing support and care at home and on occasion, you may have to help cover with care at home clients.

Applicants should be able to work on their own initiative as well as part of a team, delivering a high standard of care. Candidates should be computer literate and able to manage their own paperwork system.

All staff must register with SSSC, those who want to would be able to complete their SVQ at level 3 once they have gained 12 months experience in the role. We support employees to achieve this qualification, as well as a comprehensive training package, and personal development plan, supervision and comprehensive induction, giving the right candidate the opportunity to develop a career with qualifications and the ability to work to a high standard. PPP pay for SSSC registrations and uniforms, and 40p per mile travel expenses.

We are looking for candidates with ‘real life’ experiences who want to work within their community and who can support others and we will support them to gain the qualifications. Candidates must meet the SSSC standards and be deemed a ‘fit and proper’ person to deliver support. They must also have a valid driving licence, daily access to a car and business insurance cover.

This post is primarily Monday to Friday with occasional evening/weekend work depending upon client workload and demand.

Covering letters and CV’s can be emailed to recruitment@pppwick.org.uk or posted in to reception in Pulteney Centre, Huddart Street, Wick for the attention of Recruitment.

Closing date: Monday 12th November at 12 noon.
