Job description
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland are currently looking to recruiting a Senior Support Worker for our services in South Lanarkshire including East Kilbride, Rutherglen and Cambuslang!

The Richmond Fellowship Scotland is a leading voluntary organisation, supporting people with a broad range of needs to live in their own homes, as part of their community. We are an organisation driven by strong values and a firm commitment to choice, dignity and social inclusion. Although we support over 2800 people throughout Scotland, we are committed to delivering services that recognise people as individuals and treat them with dignity and respect; just like we would all want ourselves.

Our Senior Support Workers are classed as Front Line Management staff and as such your duties would fall under three specific areas as follows:

Staff Management:

  • Coaching and mentoring front line staff while providing appropriate support including regular supervision.
  • Identifying the training needs of your team and ensuring that this training is provided.
  • Producing the monthly rota for your team, taking into account budgetary requirements and ensuring that all staff meet their contracted hours whilst managing holiday cover and absence.
  • Developing the ability of your team to produce accurate and effective support plans.
  • Covering on-call shift work as and when needed.

Supported Individuals:

  • Plan and facilitate meetings with individuals and important people in their lives in order to collate the appropriate information required to write an effective support plan.
  • Effectively match supported individuals to staff members, keeping in mind the identified outcomes and goals to be achieved for said supported individual.


  • Liaising with external agencies such as an individual`s family or Social Work Services.
  • Ensure that the standards set by the SSSC and Care Inspectorate as well as The Richmond Fellowship Scotland`s own standards are always met.
  • Positively represent the values of The Richmond Fellowship Scotland when engaging with all external agencies.

Apply by following the link to our website!

For this fantastic opportunity you will need at least 2 years previous experience of supporting individuals within care and already have or be willing to work towards your SVQ Level 3.

The successful applicant must also register with SSSC as a Supervisor in Care at Home and Housing Support Services on taking up the post.

PVG checks will be required of all successful applicants; having a conviction will not necessarily debar you from working in this sector.

Closing Date: 23/06/22 (We reserve the right to close this vacancy at any point)
