Are you looking for a job where you can head to work each day knowing that you will make a positive difference to someone else’s life?

Working with Inspire, you will become a vital part of our team supporting local people with learning disabilities in Aberdeen.

Our work can be challenging but extremely rewarding and we are looking for people who share our values and can promote and encourage independence, while developing real life skills with the people we support to empower them to achieve their desired individual outcomes every day.

If you have a caring nature, and are respectful, compassionate, nurturing and inclusive, then we would love you to join our team and help us continue supporting people to live fulfilled and happy lives.

A Support Worker’s job can be very varied but here is an idea of what you could be getting up to on a regular basis whilst working with Inspire:

  • Identifying new opportunities for integration, participation and inclusion for the people we support, both within our services and the wider community;
  • Accompanying people on outings such as to the shops or to attend social events;
  • Participating in household tasks, including cleaning, cooking, ironing, washing etc. while encouraging the people we support to join in;
  • Maintaining people’s dignity through the provision of quality personal care, depending on individual needs;
  • Working as part of a rota, which includes evenings and weekends.

We believe in investing in those who deliver our services, which is why we pay all contracted staff above the Scottish Living Wage, put all new employees through a comprehensive induction and training programme before their first shift and support staff through a funded SVQ 3 in Health & Social Care (SCQF level 7).

To find out more about starting your career with Inspire, have a scroll through our website, where we have more information about the work we do.

Work with us to support people with learning disabilities and additional support needs. Empower life choices.

At Inspire, we believe that the people we support should be at the heart of all that we do. This influences the way that we approach our work, both with individuals and how we operate as an organisation.

As an early pioneer of person-centred planning in the North East of Scotland, we recognise that we need to take time to understand each person as a unique individual. We work with the person and their family, friends and others who support them, to develop a plan. This approach recognises that each person has their own gifts, talents, routines, interests, needs and wishes – and most importantly - empowers the people we support to make life choices based on what is important to them.
