Job description

Jewish Care Scotland create meaningful opportunities that improve outcomes for those within the Scottish Jewish community. They empower the people they support to take control of their own lives; providing excellent, responsive, person-centred advice and support; and maximising opportunities for connection.

Jewish Care Scotland provides innovative, individual care across all 31 health and social care partnerships in Scotland. It owns and operates a wonderful Day Care Centre in Glasgow’s Southside that allows it to deliver services in support of the vulnerable and wider Jewish community – social work support, one-off support, dispensing advice, providing long-standing care, operating a kosher food bank and running numerous special clubs.

You don’t have to be from the Jewish faith to work at Jewish Care Scotland. However, it is important that alongside respecting the culture and beliefs, you live their values.

Respect | Compassion | Integrity | Competence | Collaboration

Jewish Care Scotland keeps the spirit of its founding volunteers at its heart. The passion and dedication it has for supporting Scotland’s Jewish community is inspiring. Strong values underpin everything it does and these values are the commitment each member of the team has to each other as they strive to continue creating a strong community of support and engagement.

During the past year, Jewish Care Scotland has adapted its service delivery to ensure continuity for its service users across the community. The Community and Wellbeing team are central to this as they work across community and building-based services to maximise wellbeing and cultural connections.

The Senior Support Worker will provide community engagement, as well as care and support interventions at a senior-level within the Community and Wellbeing team. They will work across any community and building-based services to maximise wellbeing & cultural connections and will also provide higher-level assessments of need and interventions when required. They will also be responsible for deputising for the Team Leader during periods of absence.
