Do you want to work for a caring organisation that believes in people?

Do you want to make a difference?

As a support worker with Change Grow Live, you’ll work with people who use our services, helping them get to where they want to be.


With this role you’ll be working as part of South East Recovery Service team, based at South Neighbourhood office at 40 Captain's Road, Edinburgh, EH17 8HN

The team supports people with their or their loved ones’ drug and/or alcohol issues.

No two days are the same and we treat every person who comes into our service as an individual, so being flexible, curious and a good listener are key.

You’ll have to record information about what you do, so enjoying a bit of paperwork and attention to detail is important. But most of the time you’ll be enjoying working with people from all backgrounds, making a difference to their lives.

This is what one of our Support Workers had to say: 'I like variety in the job and working as part of a multidisciplinary team in the hub has been very helpful in developing my own practice and supporting our service users the best I can'.
