Description:
Centre Support Worker - Facilities

Closing date: Wednesday 31st July 2019


SU Scotland is a national charity, with around 100 staff and over 2,000 volunteers. Our vision is to see the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus.

Lendrick Muir, near Kinross, is our largest facility, a stunning mansion house set in 120 acres of land, offering accommodation for groups of up 160 and a unique mix of activities to experience. Primarily focussed on hosting children and young people, the centre welcomes groups of all sizes from schools, churches, youth organisations and other agencies, as well as hosting SU Holidays.

We currently have a vacancy for a Centre Support Worker - Facilities, based at Lendrick Muir. The role is for a Christian who is keen to share their faith in a community environment. Experience in DIY or a practical role such as a construction trade would be preferable. It would also suit someone with an interest in construction and maintenance and can demonstrate that with relevant school or college courses. Good hand skills, problem-solving abilities and a willingness to learn new skills.

Working as part of the Facilities Team, you will help in making sure the building and services work harmoniously together to support the core work of Lendrick Muir. This includes proactive and reactive maintenance, equipment and facility safety checks, seasonal tasks – ie grass cutting etc, some basic plumbing and joinery work and other tasks as required.

As a Centre Support you will work within the Lendrick Muir staff team helping across all teams to prepare and host residentials and activity days to all visiting groups. 

For this post, it is important that you are committed to SU Scotland’s ethos, working principles and vision and are able to demonstrate this through your commitment and motivation.  It is also an Occupational Requirement (Equality Act - part 1, schedule 9), that the post-holder is a committed Christian.

The successful applicant will be required to become a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Scheme and the appointment will be subject to a satisfactory PVG Scheme Disclosure.
