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.

  • 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.
