Vetro Recruitment are looking for support worker superheroes to join the team!

Hours: 7:30am - 11pm with a sleep-in (24 hour)

Pay: £8.50 - £10.65 including holiday pay (dependent on qualification and experience)

Benefits: Flexible work, weekly pay and a dedicated consultant

The opportunity:

Do you want to make a difference to 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 at a children's residential service in Westbury. The service is attached to an independent school which currently supports young girls aged 9 to 18 years old who have experienced trauma and are in need of significant therapeutic support.

The team provides the care, support and education to equip the young people with sufficient skills to enable them to achieve an independent and fulfilled life. You will work alongside the young people to help them learn to be proud of achievements and to reintegrate back into the wider community.

Shifts available:

You will be required to work 24 hours shifts, broken down into a working day of 7:30am - 11pm and then a sleep-in from 11pm until 7am. This is because the young people require around the clock support, some on a one-to-one basis and some on a two-to-one basis.

Your experience:

Due to the complex needs of the young people, you must have at least six months experience supporting children and young people with complex needs or emotional behavioural difficulties. We are unable to consider anyone without previous experience for this opportunity in particular, although we may have other opportunities available if you are looking to start your career in the Care sector!

The pay:

As a children's residential support worker, you will earn between £8.50 and £10.65 per hour dependent on qualification. You'll be paid on a weekly basis and even have the option to work with a FCSA-accredited company to benefit from statutory employment rights and discounts worth hundreds of pounds in day to day savings - you can even get discount on your weekly food shop!
