Vetro Recruitment are currently supporting a leaving-care service for children with emotional behavioural difficulties and mental health issues. The organisation provides support for 16 - 18 year olds who are leaving care and working towards independent living. We are looking for flexible staff who can provide shift cover, often with 24-hour support needed over the weekend.

Young people at the service often have self-harming tendencies, anxiety or depression, and present challenging behaviour, so experience supporting young people in a similar setting is essential.

As a Support Worker your responsibilities will include:

  • Supporting young people in the transition into independence and adulthood
  • Ensure the safety of the young people and provide a safe environment for them to live in
  • The ability to deal with challenging behaviours and provide emotional support when needed
  • Promote young people's independence and well-being
  • Develop and maintain good working relationships with the young people, other staff and professionals


  • Experience as a support worker with young people with self-harming tendencies preferred
  • Ability to build good relationships with service users, staff and professionals
  • Resilience to deal with challenging behaviours
  • A DBS on the online update service would be desirable
  • Full UK driving licence is required due to the needs of the services
