Job Advert - Division Information

Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Job Advert Location Description

Our home in Faversham has four bedrooms and provides a high standard of care and support for young people who have emotional and behavioural difficulties and challenging behaviour.

To succeed we need people who share our passion for making a difference and ideally have previous experience of working with challenging behaviour. We are committed to safeguarding children and promoting their welfare and expect all staff to share this commitment.

 

A family is 365 days a year and so are we!

Our shifts reflect this.

In general our shifts are 24 hours starting at 8 or 9 am through to the next day with a sleep in.

If you are working full time  this would be 3 days a week. Weekends/Bank Holidays/Christmas/New Year will be worked on a rota basis.

Job Advert Role Description

As a Support Worker you will be a key member of our team, providing high standards of person-centred support and care to our service users. Through a creative and caring approach, you will build good relationships with both service users and their families, supporting service users in the planning of goals and in living as independently as possible. Both personal care and participation in activities are key tasks for the role, so energy and initiative is vital; experience however is not essential, providing you have a willingness to learn and the compassion and patience needed to support.

What we’d like from you:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Effective organisational capability
  • Great team player
  • Flexibility to respond to the changing needs of those who we support
  • Strong “can do” attitude

What we’d like to give you:

  • A competitive salary
  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage
  • Comprehensive induction and commitment to ongoing training
  • Online benefits and cashback rewards
