At the heart of everything Bon Accord Care do is meeting the needs of the people we support; made possible by the greatest asset that we have – our team of caring and passionate people. As an organisation we work together to ensure that each member of the team feels valued, respected and motivated to be the best they can be. All staff are encouraged to contribute to open communication, keep themselves and others informed and up-to-date, as well as have their voice heard at regular forums.
We take the development of our people very seriously, providing a range of training courses to strengthen the skills needed to do their job effectively. A robust induction programme is delivered for all new employees, with continual training and guidance given throughout their career with us. This ongoing learning and development is the key to remaining responsive and flexible to changing needs, and raising the standards of service to improve the quality of life for those we support.
In return for hard work and dedication, we offer a supportive working environment; a great benefits package; training and development opportunities; and flexible working hours to suit a good work-life balance. Some people want to spend their day supporting and inspiring others to be as independent as possible; to honour individuality and make a positive difference in their lives. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
Our in-house support pool work on a casual basis as required by our various services, to achieve quality, maximise resources and ensure better outcomes for our service users.
The flexible way of working gives access to employment in Bon Accord Care for those not able to commit to traditional style working arrangements and allows for a work-life balance to suit each individual.
The pool, managed by the in house office team consisting of the Support Pool Manager, Support Pool Customer Leads & Support Pool Coordinators, provides staff to all our establishments across the city, stretching from Peterculter to Dyce and includes residential, very sheltered and sheltered housing.
