Have you always wanted to work with Children and Young people but never had a chance?

Are you currently working with Children or Young people and seeking a new opportunity with amazing career development?


I am currently recruiting for a fantastic opportunity to join a new team as a Residential Support Worker at a home which supports young people aged 13- 17 with EBD. Unlike other opportunities working with young people, whilst a driving licence is desirable, it isn't essential for this site.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals who want to make a difference to the lives of young people; to enable them to develop socially, emotionally and behaviourally in a setting where they feel safe and cared for. No two days are ever the same, so you need to be happy to work in a fast paced, ever-changing environment.

Salary: £18,920 - £20,730 (sleep allowance included)

Location: HR1, Hereford

Contract: Full time, permanent, shifts on a rotational basis that includes some weekends and bank holidays


As a Residential Support Worker you will be responsible for;

  • Be the young person’s champion and as part of the wider team strive to ensure that they achieve their aspirations and full potential
  • Manage the well-being and behaviour of young people ensuring behaviour are addressed promptly and sensitively
  • Support young people in daily activities including family contact, attending local clubs, 1:1 activities in the community, promoting independence and social behaviour
  • You will be assigned a key child and play a pivotal role in their day to day life including attending reviews and liaising with external agencies and advocating their needs
  • Support and encourage educational engagement and attainment including homework and behavioural support within the education setting
  • Working as a team you will ensure the home is kept to a good standard in all aspects of house-keeping.
Requirements:
  • Experience as a Children’s Support Worker, or with Young People is desirable - but more important is a caring nature and a genuine interest in wanting to make a difference.
  • You must be over the age of 21
  • NVQ or QCF level 3 in Children & Young People is desirable but not required as you will be supported to obtain this qualification once in post.
