Job Description

I am actively seeking a skilled, compassionate child centred senior support worker to join a leading, recognised provider of residential care and educational support for children and young people.

You will become a pivotal part of an established, care focused organisation who is committed to making a difference to the lives of the young people they support. A forward-thinking organisation, this is reflected in their work practices, training and professional development.

Working closely with the registered and deputy manager, and effectively leading a team of care and support staff, you will deliver care and support in line with both OFSTED and company guidelines. You will provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment which fosters emotional, social and physical wellbeing and development.

Within your role as senior support worker, you will lead shifts and offer direct support to the staff team. Staff supervisions, report writing, care and support planning and behaviour management are all a key part of the senior support worker role.

As with all children`s residential provisions, you will be required to work a varied shift pattern to include sleep ins, weekends and bank holidays.

This is the perfect opportunity for a skilled children`s residential support worker who is seeking the next step on the career ladder or an established senior support worker who would like the opportunity to join a national provider.

To be successful in your application for senior residential support worker you must demonstrate a proven background within children`s residential care settings as a residential support worker or as a senior. You will hold the QCF level 3 in health and social care for children and young people`s services and have flexibility to work a varied shift pattern.

Your extensive knowledge, skills and experience will be rewarded with a highly competitive salary up to £23,208 per annum inclusive of sleep in allowance. With your SLEEPS you can add an extra £4200 to your salary taking you up to £27,408 as well as a generous annual leave allowance and continued training and development. Genuine career progression opportunities are also available within this market leading organisation.
