ILS is looking for 30 new care workers in Clackmannanshire
ILS Scotland is looking to recruit 30 new care workers to its team in Clackmannan.
We provide services on contract to Clackmannanshire Council, and supports older people at home and people of all ages challenged by disabilities and other issues which make it hard for them to cope with life alone.
We are looking for a range of full-time, part-time and relief support workers. Full staff training is provided prior to working in the community as well as ongoing training and support with the opportunity for career progression. An SVQ training programme has recently been launched for all members of the teams.
Carol Gillies, 48, from Tullibody, joined ILS in 2004, following her daughter’s footsteps, and has never looked back. She’s been promoted three times over the last eight years, and is now Assistant Service Manager for ILS in Clacks.
“We have a fantastic team here, and provide such an important service to the local community,” says Carol. “Most of our clients are vulnerable adults and an ILS care worker might be the only person they see in a day. And although we provide support for simple everyday things such as personal care, shopping and meal preparation, companionship is also vitally important. My job is much more office based these days, managing a big team and a fleet of 12 cars, overseeing care plans, and carrying out reviews and spot checks. But I still have contact with a lot of clients through courtesy calls and feedback meetings, which is great, as I really like working amongst people and get great job satisfaction from what I do.”
