Vetro Recruitment are looking for support worker superheroes to join the team!
Hours: 4pm - 10pm / 8am - 10pm on weekends and during school holidays
Contract type: Flexible agency work
Pay: £8.50 - £9.53 per hour including holiday pay
Benefits: Flexible work, weekly pay and a dedicated consultant
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 Support Workers. You will have the chance to work on a flexible ad-hoc basis in a children's residential home just outside the Brecon Beacons that supports young people with emotional behavioural difficulties. The home offers placements to young people aged 10-17 years who display challenging and harmful behaviours and is currently home to four females.
Due to the possibility of challenging behaviours, you must have a form of restraint and de-escalation training. This can be provided by Vetro Recruitment for a small cost if you do not have this already.
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, 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?
The home we support near the Brecon Beacons generally require a mix of long days and afternoon shifts. This is similar to most children's residential services, although there are also often sleep-in shifts available which can boost your hours and pay! We do have other services who require various shifts - anything from 12 hour day shifts to waking nights, so it is best to get in contact about what you are looking for in particular.
In an ideal world, you will have at least six months 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 within Social Care but always wanted the chance to support young people! The one thing you do need? A full UK driving licence (and a great attitude!)
As a children's residential support worker, you will earn between £8.50 and £9.53 per hour including holiday pay and you'll be paid on a weekly basis. You will also earn holiday pay which you can either accrue or be paid weekly!
