Job Advert Role Description

We are seeking Residential Support Worker’s for our Children’s Home in Northwich, Cheshire. Our home supports up to three young people aged between 8 - 18 years old with emotional and behavioural difficulties. 

As a Residential Support Worker you will be a key member of our team providing high standards of person-centred support and care to our young people throughout their day-to-day life.  Through a creative and caring approach you will build good relationships with both students and their families, supporting them in living as independently as possible.

This is a physically demanding role and staff will also need to have the confidence to deal with the challenging behaviours that autism can present.  We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all our employees to share in this commitment.

Hours

A family is 24/7 and so are we. We use a rota system to ensure the young people in our home get the care they need.  Our Support Worker posts will suit people who are prepared to work a three week rolling rota comprising of early and late shifts covering weekdays and weekends. The role does not require any contractual ‘sleep-in’ duties.

A Level 3 Residential Childcare qualification is desirable but not essential for this role (we can support with the training of this).  Successful applicants will ideally have previous experience of working with young people with challenging behaviour.

What we’d like to give you:

  • Sponsored access to Diploma Level 3 in Residential Childcare (if not already obtained)
  • 33 days annual leave (inclusive of bank holidays)
  • Priory Group Pension
  • Travel Insurance
  • Dental Insurance
  • Reduced price Gym membership
  • Gourmet Society Card
  • Healthcare cash plan
  • Online benefits portal and high street store cashback rewards
  • Priory Group Career Pathways - build your skills and plan for your future career with on-going training supported.

If you have been affected by coronavirus, or are tired of working from home we have care and education roles available across the country for temp, part-time and full time roles.
