Pay: £9.50 - £10.65 including holiday pay

The opportunity:

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of children and young people? We are looking for passionate people to join our lovely team of Care Assistants. You will have the chance to work on a flexible or full time agency basis in a children's respite in Cardiff that supports young people from 7 to 17 years old. The home supports children and young people with a mix of needs including physical disabilities, learning disabilities, communication and behavioural difficulties. There are 8 beds available at the respite service, although there are usually no more than 4 children and young people there at a time. You must be comfortable with personal care as this role does involve bathing, showering and changing pads for young people.

Not only will you be working in the most rewarding sector there is, but you'll also be in control of when you work and where you work. As well as supporting this home in Cardiff, you will have the chance to work at a variety of children's services across South Wales (Cardiff and the Vale, Torfaen, RCT, Blaenau Gwent, Newport and more). We support children's residential homes, transitional services and respite care for 9 - 21 year olds. We've got lots of other support worker jobs with these same clients. Why not take the opportunity to work with these homes on a flexible basis to see where your next permanent opportunity will be?

Shifts available:

There are a mixture of shifts including 7am - 2pm, 2pm - 10pm and 10pm - 7am (waking nights). The client are looking for people to work on a full time agency basis although there is also the option to work on a flexible basis.

Your experience:

You must have a minimum of six months experience in the Care sector already. In an ideal world, this will be experience supporting children and young people with complex needs or emotional behavioural difficulties. On the other hand, we also love giving people the opportunity to experience a new sector who have supported other client groups but always wanted the chance to support young people!

The pay:

You will be paid between £9.50 and £10.65 per hour including holiday pay and you'll be paid weekly.
