Do you want to work for a leading provider of residential care for children and young people? We provide employment opportunities to join our established teams in children’s homes and leaving care services across Greater Manchester.
So… even if you have no prior experience this could be your opportunity to start a career caring for children and young people. We will provide training and qualification to Level 3 Diploma and support from experienced teams to enable you to succeed with a structured pay scale and career development opportunities.
What are the roles?
These are full time permanent roles and part time positions available.
The roles operate on a rotating combination shift pattern as below:
Early shifts between 7.30am – 3.00pm
Late shifts between 2.30pm – 10.00pm
Split shifts: Late shift, sleep in and early shift combined
Average 37 hours per week, including working weekends and sleep in duties paid as additional hours
Salary from: £16,500 - £21,500 (including additional sleep in payments)
We are looking for staff to join the team in delivering quality care for children with disabilities including emotional and behavioural difficulties.
It is very hard work, demanding good organisational skills, stamina, resilience and patience from someone’s character.
Sometimes there can be very little time for breaks or rest as the children’s day is filled with activities outside of the home, or requires good planning and creative thinking to devise activities in the home which meet the young people’s sensory and cognitive needs.
There is a level of personal care required especially for the younger children who have issues with bowel movements and can sometimes have accidents. Getting woken throughout the night is also a possibility, when children are looking for reassurance, or need to be guided back into night time routine.
This is a really rewarding role as the children wait in anticipation to shower you with affection, have a great sense of humour which breeds fun and laughter throughout the home and above all else you are able to witness great progress from first admission.
To be considered for this role, please apply today.
