Job Advert Role Description

Aspris Children’s Services (an independent company which was formally Priory Education and Children’s Services) is one of the UK’s leading independent providers of specialist care and education for a reason. We recruit some of the most committed people in this sector.

We are looking for passionate, energetic and aspirational individuals to work within our children's home in Usk, Monmouthshire, as a Residential Support Worker.  Our home is located near the M4/A449 and is a three bed home for young people aged 11 to 16 years old with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. 

Would you like to inspire our young people and build your career at the same time?

Are you hard working and keen to help our young people achieve their full potential?

Our Residential Support Workers provide day to day care for our young people.  This could include supporting them in activities, encouraging them to join local clubs, ensuring all health needs are met and supporting them with their education.  Our Residential Support Workers are crucial to increasing the self-esteem of our young people and equipping them with the knowledge and ability to keep themselves safe. 

Ideally, candidates will have some previous experience of supporting young people with additional needs in a residential environment.

It is an essential requirement of this role that applicants hold a full driving license.

To ensure the young people are cared for in a consistent manner, a rota system is in place which includes sleeping in duties and being away from home for a couple of days at a time. This provides the young people with the needed security and nurture they have often missed through their childhood. However whilst you are on shift the home will become a comfortable space for you as day to day living is very similar to that of your own home. All home comforts including meals are provided.

Being a part of a rota system then also means you have similar time to spend at home; which is a bonus.

Aspris is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  All applicants must be willing to undergo safeguarding screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure & Barring Service.

What do you get in return?

  • A generous salary
  • Being part of a company that invests in you and your team for personal and professional development
  • Reward and discount schemes
  • Pension
  • Enhanced DBS fee paid
  • Access to a holiday package
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Wellbeing support.

You can be part of something special

At Aspris, we are dedicated to enhancing the life opportunities of the children and young people within our homes, and always celebrate uniqueness and diversity.

Our homes are part of a large children’s group with a national footprint offering significant development, support and progression opportunities. We also operate a fostering service and a number of high quality specialist schools in both the UK and the Middle East.
