Full Time
We are expanding and are searching for the right people to be part of our growing team. This opportunity is for a full time contract, which also involves two sleeping shifts a week, though part time and zero hours contracts are available for those who want a little more flexibility.

If you are motivated to help young people achieve independence then this may be of interested to you. This work involves safeguarding and support plans, tailored on the needs of the young people (16-25), to help them develop the skills needed to be independent. Whilst this involves lone working you would be part of a wider support team who work with the young people in their own accommodation.

If you have at least one year experience working in the looked after children's sector, or similar sector experience with the relevant age group, and aren't put off by the paperwork then we want to hear from you! You'll join a strong supportive team who are committed to transforming lives whilst providing you with the support you need to succeed. Full training and ongoing career development is part of the package - as well as employer contributions into a pension scheme for those who qualify for auto-enrolment.
