While we endeavour to allocate work as locally as possibly to all our Supported Living Support Workers, a willingness to travel throughout all Forth Valley areas is desirable. Due to the nature of this role, support visits are not always located in a fixed location and the distance between two or more working locations in a working day may not be close geographically, therefore a driving licence is highly preferred but is not essential to candidates who are willing to walk or use public transport in their own time.

Applicants must be willing to work a minimum of alternate weekends and demonstrate high levels of flexibility.
