Quarriers has launched an urgent recruitment drive with a range of full and part-time positions available across the country including Renfrewshire.

The leading social care charity needs staff and volunteers who can provide vital services for some of society’s most vulnerable people. The need for immediate recruitment has increased as the Coronavirus continues to cause challenging circumstances for both existing Quarriers staff and volunteers, and those they support.

Full-time positions through to a just a few hours per week are available and the organisation is also looking for volunteers to help with tasks such as shopping, cooking or cleaning.

Quarriers is currently offering short term contracts from one to three months or relief work which may welcomed by many, during this difficult time. This is with a view to positions being made permanent once the pandemic is over, if the candidate still requires a permanent role at that stage.

Amongst the available positions are support workers in Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, Ayrshire, Bearsden and Milngavie. Roles at North Lanarkshire Disability which provides valuable support for people with physical and learning disabilities.

Alice Harper, chief executive officer for Quarriers, said: “We know this is a very difficult and challenging time and that many people in a range of sectors including retail, hospitality and leisure have been impacted.

“We have a range of vacancies across Scotland with a mix of full-time, part-time and short-term contracts on offer. A number of the available positions offer an immediate start, and we would urge anyone who feels suited to the roles to get in touch.

“The top priority for Quarriers is to ensure we maintain the highest levels of service for those that we care for and our staff are of vital importance in delivering this essential care. We hope this recruitment drive provides a positive opportunity for both those we support and those who may be affected in the current climate.”
