Residential Care Worker Closing date: Monday 26th January 2015

Ideally you will have previous experience of working with teenage boys either through a previous work role, voluntary role or have developed parenting skills through bringing up your own or others children. Most of all you will have a genuine interest in working with young people, willing to engage with them and be involved in a range of activities and interests that the boys enjoy. We are committed to enabling our boys to achieve and to do this they need the support of the care team, encouraging and helping them, building confidence and self-esteem. If you would like to be part of the boys’ success and can use your skills and enthusiasm to set boundaries, challenge unacceptable behaviour, develop the young person’s social and independent skills, be a role model and provide a nurturing environment in which our boys can feel safe and supported, we would like to hear from you. A full UK driving licence is essential. You will be working a unique pattern of 7 days on shift followed by 7 days off. (Whole Time Working).
