I have an amazing opportunity for a Senior Support Worker to join a beautiful residential children's home, which is based in Bacup, Lancashire.

The service cares for 4 girls, aged between 11-18, who have a mixture of backgrounds, which can lead to challenging behaviours.

(We are also recruiting for Support Workers for the same service).

You will work on a 160 hour month, working a mixture of long shifts (9:30am - 11:00pm), or shorter shifts (12:00pm - 11:00pm).
