"Our purpose is to provide a positive, life-changing experience for young people through individual care, education and skills development focused on promoting young people’s mental and emotional wellbeing and longer-term positive outcomes.”

The GSC campus just outside Bishopton offers young people a safe, nurturing and caring environment set in fabulous grounds with a garden wildlife trail and outdoor sports facility. On-campus there are three secure care houses, a close support house & a semi-independent living cottage. Young people who live with us continue their education in our school, on campus, or attend further education out with the campus.

This is an exciting time to join Team GSC as the charity seeks to build on its strong reputation for relational based practice and helping young people to build hope, skills and plans for their future. At GSC we are on a journey and have ambitious strategic goals for the growth and development of our young people and our services.

GSC offers employees a great benefits package and you will be joining an enthusiastic and dedicated team.

Young people referred to our houses have experienced significant difficulties in their lives, and many will have faced traumatic and harmful situations and may be experiencing psychological distress; mental health problems; and problems coping with managing feelings and day to day life. We offer a place of safety and nurture where we support young people and their families, alongside the professionals involved in their lives, to make sense of these experiences and to build hope, coping skills and goals for the future.

The Maintenance Support worker will join our Maintenance team who are key to the provision of a safe, welcoming, and homely environment for young people and colleagues to live, learn and work in whilst at the GSC.

The Maintenance Support worker will be responsible for assisting the smooth running of the support services within the Centre. The role will involve general repairs and maintenance work as required and liaising with the Facilities & Operations Manager and external contractors.

We’d love to hear from you, if you have a minimum of 1-2 years maintenance experience, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills; and you’re adaptable, reliable and hard working.

If you are looking for a new and exciting role in the third sector, then working as part of our dedicated and experienced maintenance team may be a good move for you.
