job description

Do you have experience of supporting young people with emotional or challenging behaviour?

Would you like to make a world of difference to the life and prospects of a young person?

We are currently recruiting for a new service opening on the outskirts of Tiverton. The service is dedicated to supporting 16-18 year olds who have been in residential care and are moving to a supported living setting. The role is about promoting independence and encouraging positive behaviours.

Who should apply?

Ideally we are looking for people who have at least 6 months experience of supporting children and young people with challenging behaviour. An NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care (Children and Young People) would certainly be an advantage. If you have experience in another care sector and believe you are up to challenge, we would certainly like to talk to you! Due the job role, location and the need to work in different locations, we are looking for drivers with their own transport.

Job responsibilities:

Working on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis to support a young person.

Work in a pro-active manner, being aware of the issues faced by the young people in their care.

Supporting young people and promoting independence within the home.

Hours of work:

Various shifts available, but often can be long shifts up to 24 hours including sleeps. Shorter shifts available within certain services.

Benefits:



* Opportunities for permanent role for the right people.
* Training available.
* Weekly pay.
* Competitive holiday.
* Flexible working hours that you choose

If you would like to find out more about these amazing opportunities to change the life of a vulnerable young person, please apply online today!
