This is a great opportunity to continue your leadership career in care, working as part of a team committed to helping children with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and you will be working in a setting where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where children and young people are listened to, respected and involved in as many decisions as possible.

Qualified to RMA or QCF L3, Level 3 Diploma in Residential Childcare or equivalent, you will be happy to work towards (or already be in possession of) your Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health & Social Care and Children & Young Peoples Service and will be a calm, engaging, resilient leader able to motivate your team to provide a safe, caring environment where every child can thrive.
