We are looking for an experienced Support Worker to join a well-established Children and Young People's residential service supporting vulnerable Young People. Homes are based in Warminster, Frome, Radstock and Salisbury. This is a peripatetic role where you would be floating between the homes.

Salary: £24,327 per year including sleep-in shifts. This includes a basic salary of £19,047 plus £55 per sleep-in shift, which equals to £24,327 per year.

Shift Pattern:

Week 1: Mon, Weds, Sat

Week 2: Tue, Fri, Sun

Week 3: Thursday

Shifts are 10:00am - 10:30am the following morning (24.5hr sleep-in shifts).

Responsibilities:

  • Supporting young people with challenging behaviour in their day to day lives.
  • Work as part of a team.
  • Work well under pressure.
  • Able to be proactive, enthusiastic and empathetic.

Requirements:

  • Must either hold or be willing to work towards the NVQ Level 3 Diploma or equivalent in Children's Residential.
  • Experience in working with children and young people is essential.
  • Able to take responsibility for the care and well being of young people.
  • Full UK Manual Driving Licence is essential due to the location of the homes and the duties involved.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Must be aged 23 or over, due to the oldest child at the setting and due to the policies of the organisation.

Benefits:

  • Free Enhanced DBS check.
  • Free training.
