Have you always wanted to work with children / young people but never had the opportunity?
Are you passionate about making a difference to the lives of children?

If yes, we want to hear from you!

We are looking for resilient, energetic and enthusiastic individuals to join a well established team that provides support to children and young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Whilst previous experience of working with children or young people is preferable, we can consider applicants who have a caring nature and a real passion for wanting to make a positive impact on the lives of young people. 
 
As a Young Persons Support Worker, you will be responsible for enabling the young people 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.

  • Undertaking the role of key worker for a young person
  • Supporting the young people to become happy, well rounded individuals

Requirements:
  • Full drivers licence and access to a car
  • Experience as a Children’s Support Worker, or with Young People is desirable - but more important is a genuine interest in wanting to make a difference.
