My client, a national provider who support children and young people who have suffered abuse, neglect and have developed behavioural difficulties, are looking to hire Support Workers in their purpose-built children's home in Ferryside, South Wales

The home delivers personalised, therapeutic support to ensure the young people can understand and move forward from their difficulties. The Support Workers are integral to the development of the young people.

My client will consider applications from graduates with relevant degree, candidates with no practical experience but genuine passion for working with young people.

Please note, you must have a driving license (min 3 years for insurance purposes) and be over 21 years of age (due to Ofsted restrictions).
