Children’s Residential Support Worker – Powys Area - £26,250 (including sleeps)
 
My client has a new and exciting opportunity for experienced and passionate Children’s Residential Workers in the Powys area. This company is in its early stages and currently has 4 homes. However, their plan for expansion over the next 2 years is extensive. We are looking to build a great team to develop with us on this journey.
 
The services are all EBD and CSE homes so a knowledge of this is desirable, however, if you have experience working in any type of Children’s Service in Wales, we want to hear from you.
 
This company is lovingly ran by people with a background in managing children’s services so they have their children and young people at the heart of everything they do. They aim to open another 8 homes over the next 2 years including one crisis assessment centre to feed the rest of the services once they are up and running. They are aiming to purchase the homes based on the location of the managers, so the flexibility here is massive.
 
This will be the newest service in the Powys area, and will be 3/4 bed EBD and CSE Service.
 
The shift pattern is 4 on 4 off and does require sleep ins. We are looking for qualified, and unqualified staff.
 
To apply for this role, you must have the following,
 
  • Experience working in a Children’s Residential Service – for unqualifed (preferably under CSSIW)
  • NVQ 3 Children and Young Peoples Work Force (or equivalent - for unqualified)
  • Driver (due to location)
  • Passionate about your job
  • Enthusiastic and driven
 
Please Note: This is not suitable for applicants with a nursery/school background.
 
You will be offered a salary of £26,250 including sleeps. You will also take advantage of benefits such as pension scheme, extra for overtime, free parking and blue light scheme (discount and vouchers). You will also be a part of a growing organisation with the chance to progress as the company does.
 
If you want an exciting new challenge and have the skills and experience, please get in touch,
