We are particularly seeking candidates who are available to cover Early, Back, Weekend and Night shift. (Also see Corporate and Ancillary section for Cook/Housekeeper vacancy within our residential houses).

We are currently recruiting for a number of Residential Child Care Workers for our services which include the exciting opportunity of new houses.

Applicants should be committed individuals with the ability to provide an inclusive, inspiring, living environment for our young people. The position will involve working with small groups of young people aged 8-18, experiencing a variety of complex needs/parenting experiences. Candidates must have the experience or transferable skills for this role as well as an understanding of working with complex needs. Ideally candidates would have experience of Residential Care and/or Social Work although if you do not necessarily have the experience for the role, however, have the passion for working with our young people and feel you have transferable skills and qualities to do so, we would like to hear from you.

Relevant qualifications are not essential to start, however there is a requirement set by the SSSC to gain the relevant qualification/s within 3 years.

If you have applied previously and were unsuccessful, we would like to hear from you again if you feel you have gained new skills or experience.
