Have you always wanted to work with young people in residential services but never had the chance?
Or are you already a children’s residential support worker looking for a new opportunity?

I am recruiting for Support Workers to join a well-established service working with vulnerable children and young people with emotional behavioural difficulties in a small children's residential service nestled in the Malvern Hills just outside Little Malvern.

Salary: £18,585 - £19,065 (sleep allowance included) plus plenty of overtime available!!
Location: Little Malvern
Hours: Full time – 37.5 hours per week
Shift Times: 8am – 11pm sleep 7am – 8.30am
Shift Pattern:
Week 1 - Tuesday and Friday
Week 2 – Monday and Thursday
Week 3 – Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday

We are looking for committed and passionate individuals who will be able to engage with the young people and encourage and mentor them, whilst having a whole lot of fun! Getting paid to play football and going to theme parks is certainly a perk of the job!!
If you are passionate about the lives of young people and want to make a real difference, supporting young people between the ages of 8 – 19 with EBD, this is the job for you!

Responsibilities:
  • Supporting young people with challenging behaviour in their day to day lives.
  • Work as part of a team.
  • Work well under pressure.
  • Able to be proactive, enthusiastic and empathetic.
Requirements:
  • Must either hold or be willing to work towards the QCF Level 3 Children & Young People qualification in Children's Residential.
  • Experience in working with children and young people is desirable but not essential.
  • Able to take responsibility for the care and well-being of young people.
  • Full UK Manual Driving Licence is essential due to the location of the homes and the duties involved.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Must be aged 21 or over, due to the oldest child at the setting and due to the policies of the organisation.
