Salary: £8.00 - £8.45/hour Excellent Benefits per Hour

Category: Social Care

We are looking to recruit new team members so that we can increase our home occupancy to four young people.

Salary - £8.00 - £8.45 per hour (dependant on qualifications/experience)

We support children and young people who present a variety of complex needs. The young people we care for can require different levels of support, which means that they can be very anxious at times.

For the most of a day, it can be the same, as you would expect within any family home, with all the usual busy activities associated with young people. However, it can become a very agitated and angry environment, with our young people demonstrating some very challenging behaviours. This is why the staffing in the home requires 1:1 support.

Our young people are extremely vulnerable and have experienced significant trauma and require constant support, encouragement and positive role modelling.

Our home is a 4-bed semi-detached house close to Stratford upon Avon and near to Ulcester. The house is spacious and team believes it has a homely feel. With a large garden to the rear and opening onto a paddock, it is very green and provides a sense of open space. Due to our shift patterns and the homes location, to be able to work here, it really does need to be a person with access to a private car.

Types of duties
These can be varied but are all centred on the young person and can include:

- Providing encouragement when getting ready for school
- Care Planning
- Meal Planning
- Organising and facilitating social activities (outside of school)
- Maintaining the home (cleaning, laundry and shopping etc.)
- Home management
- Liaising with external stakeholders and our own multi-disciplinary team

The day can be very unpredictable and quite easily you could spend the entire afternoon providing 1:1 support managing extremely challenging behaviour, the right type of person needs to be flexible, adaptable and able to read situations and help our young people make positive choices.

Shift patterns – example

- Monday – Early shift 07.30 – 15.30 / Late shift 15.00 – 23.00 & Sleep In
- Tuesday – Day off
- Wednesday – Day off
- Thursday - Early shift 07.30 – 15.30 / Late shift 15.00 – 23.00 & Sleep In
- Friday – Day off
- Saturday – Day off
- Sunday - Early shift 07.30 – 15.30 / Late shift 15.00 – 23.00 & - Sleep In
- Monday – Day off
- Tuesday – Day off
- Wednesday - Early shift 07.30 – 15.30 / Late shift 15.00 – 23.00 & - Sleep In
- Thursday – Day off
- Friday – Day off
- Saturday - Early shift 07.30 – 15.30 / Late shift 15.00 – 23.00 & - Sleep In
- Sunday – Day off

Travel time up to 1.5 hours will be paid.

These patterns repeat and it is really important to note that on your shift you will be 24 hours within the home. There is some flexibility of working and our manager knows how important a good work life balance is for her team.

Every person that starts with us is supported and developed; our registered manager is very experienced but new to the home, supported by an equally experienced deputy both are committed to ensuring that you work within a nurturing home environment. We have a regional dedicated trainer who will help you complete your comprehensive induction with us and you can rely upon the support of a regional clinician from our multi-disciplinary team.

Within this home, we support young people of mixed age and gender and we have some great successes. The young people we support are very well adjusted to school and are achieving great marks and participating in a number of activities.

Who are we?
We are the Cambian group, the largest independent provider of care and education for children and young people. We believe that everyone has a personal best. Those we care for and those who care for them. You’ll find that you’re part of a close, supportive team, all focused on achieving the best outcome for everyone. The better we work together, the more we can help the people we care for achieve their personal best too.

Here, you’ll join a strong, supportive team in helping young people with complex needs. It’s challenging yet highly rewarding work where the little things you do every day will have life-changing results.

Whether that’s in terms of helping someone to achieve their personal potential or growing our reputation as provider of the best quality behavioural health services in the UK. We already have 27 Ofsted ‘Outstanding Provider’ Awards, join us and together we can achieve more
