We currently have two vacancies for a Scheme Assistant to join the team at our Very Sheltered Housing Development in Comrie, providing a professional housing support service to our tenants within the development.

However, if you do not have an SVQ qualification we will support you in gaining it over the next two to three years and we can also provide food hygiene training if necessary.
