My client has been established since 1989 and opened to shape and deliver services for people with learning disabilities in Glasgow and they continue to do this work in Glasgow as well as across other local authority areas. They were an organisation originally set up by parents of young people with learning disabilities and have grown and become established over the years providing a range of options for people to access and purchase using their individual budgets.

They are a registered charity and work in partnership with a range of providers to ensure that vulnerable people have every opportunity to lead active and inclusive lives. Much of their work is still in Castlemilk but we operate out with the area and support people in other geographic areas.

The Role:

We currently require an experienced receptionist to join the team on a temporary, however this does have a view to going permanent, depending on workflow.
