Children's Support Worker

Southampton, Hampshire

Do you want to work with children who have had difficult starts to life? Are you empathetic, enthusiastic and want to make a difference? Do you want to work with the UK's leading provider within a Children's Residential Home? Apply here!

I am looking for Children's Support Workers to care for children and young people who have suffered abuse, neglect and have developed behavioural difficulties. The Children's Support Workers will be based in the purpose-built children's home in Southampton, Hampshire.

The home delivers personalised, therapeutic support to ensure the young people can understand and move forward from their difficulties. You will be provided with extensive training and gain the relevant qualifications to nurture children in the best possible way. The Children's Support Workers are integral to the development of the young people.

The Children's Support Worker job is a permanent full-time job paying up to £26,000 (£10.25 - £11.25 per hour) including sleep-in rates of £65 per night.

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 and be over 21 years of age (due to Ofsted restrictions).

The successful candidate must have

  • Experience working with children or young people in some capacity (children's social care, youth work, volunteering, nursery or interest in psychology, youth development and vulnerable young people)
  • Flexibility to work shifts including weekends, evenings, nights, and sleep-ins
  • Positive mentality who is resilient, empathetic and has a genuine passion for improving outcomes of young people
