Children Residential Practitioner

Job Description

BS Social Care Croydon are looking for experienced and qualified Children Residential workers to work across South London. We are working with services in Lambeth, Wandsworth, Surrey, Merton, Greenwich, Lewisham and Bromley.

We are working with a number of OFsted Registered Children's Homes, which provide care to children with emotional behavioural issues and mild learning disabilities. The services provide a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for children who have experienced different forms of trauma.

We are looking for candidates who have a true passion for nurturing young people. We want to speak with you if you have experience working with vulnerable children in any OFsted registered environment. You will be expected to work in line with organisation's policies and procedures as well as being aware of national guidelines outlined by OFsted. Providing support and care to children with emotional and behavioural challenges, you will be able to manage challenging and at times, aggressive behaviours by using your experience and training techniques. You will be able to engage with challenging young people, and show determination and commitment to those young people, with the aim to support them achieve their desired outcomes.

Children in residential care have more than likely experienced some form of severe trauma, which could be a result of issues including domestic violence, neglect, abuse, bereavement or family breakdowns, and more. My clients are looking for candidates who are aware of these types of issues, and the behaviours and challenges that children can present when trying to manage these issues.
