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 for a residential and leaving care service for young people between 11 and 18 years old. You will have the option to work across the Torfaen and RCT area. Some of these young people are in the transitional period out of children's services and preparing for independent or supported living services so you should be confident with lone working. Dependent on the needs of the young people, there are often male or female specific shifts needed, and we do have a large requirement for male support workers due to this. You may also be required to transport the young person in your own car so you will need business insurance.
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 client across the Torfaen and RCT area, you will have the chance to work at a variety of children's services across South Wales (Cardiff and the Vale, 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.
Our client in Torfaen and RCT have a variety of days and waking nights available, from 10 hour shifts to long days and sleep-ins. This is similar to most children's residential services but can vary 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 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 £10.70 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!
