Camphill Community Grangebeg is a HIQA registered social care community where people live, work and grow together regardless of age, background, nationality or ability. It is a vibrant place where adult residents and day attendees with intellectual disabilities are supported to live high quality lives by staff, volunteers and support workers. It is the commitment of these people who live and work at Camphill Grangebeg that creates such a warm, friendly and supportive community where everyone’s contributions are valued and respected.
Due to expansion Camphill Grangebeg is currently offering a number of part-time, full time and relief job opportunities for residential support workers and day time facilitators to support adults with intellectual disabilities to live high quality lives.
Positions for which we will be interviewing:
Full Time House Co-Ordinator
Part Time and Full Time Residential Support Workers
Relief Panel Posts
These opportunities will lend themselves to flexible working to fit around other commitments. We believe in supporting individuals and enabling them to achieve their potential. These values are reflected in our approach to staff and their development. As an employee you will have access to in-house and external training with support to study for recognised QQI awards.
While, for the people who are employed at Camphill Grangebeg, the life-sharing aspect of the community is not wholly present, they are fully integrated community members committed to the values and ethos of the organisation. They appreciate that this life-sharing aspect is part of what makes Camphill Grangebeg special and different, just as the life-sharing co-workers value the employees for what they bring to the community often carrying responsibilities that cannot be performed in the same way by them.
If you become an employee of Camphill Grangebeg you will join a vibrant and growing community. This, complemented with good terms and conditions including family friendly policies, generous holidays and competitive salary, ensures that a job with us will not only be fulfilling but offer you a good work-life balance.
If you have or are in the process of studying to gain a minimum of a QQI Level 5 Social Care Qualification, have some experience of working with people with intellectual disabilities and are familiar with key-working and person centered planning we would be delighted to receive an application from you. Some of these positions may include home outreach programs.
