  • Are you looking for a fulfilling career helping young people become as independent as possible?
  • Are you available for 4 waking nights per week?

Vetro recruitment are seeking a committed waking night worker for 4 nights per week within a residential children's home in Tadley.

As a Night Waking Officer you will have responsibility to ensure that the children and young people in your care are safe.

This is a waking night, 52 week post which requires staff to be alert and observant at all times. In addition to regular checks on the children and young people you will be assigned additional tasks which might include administration and laundry.

What we'd like from you:

  • Emotional resilience
  • Flexibility, resourcefulness
  • A strong 'can do' attitude
  • Effective communication skills
  • Previous experience in a special needs environment would be desirable but not essential as full training will be given to candidates who can demonstrate that they possess the skills required to be successful and a desire to learn.

You will be working within a home for 5 young people aged 7-19 who have complex needs which may include Autistic spectrum disorders and complex associated difficulties. Children may also display challenging behaviours as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.

Your role will be to assist the young people to develop the skills needed to live as independently as possible, so that they are able to enjoy their lives and make real life choices as they reach adulthood.

This role is based on 4 nights per week (37 hours per week) and paid at £9.29 per hour.
