Children’s Support Worker, Horsham

£17.5K per annum + £62.64 per sleep-in (an extra £3758 per year)

Full-time, 2 days on, 4 days off

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to become Children’s Support Worker’s close to the Horsham area of West Sussex. You would be joining a small residential home for girls aged between 10 – 18 with Educational Behavioural Difficulties (EBD) with challenging behaviours who may have experienced sexual exploitation or trauma.

This could be the rewarding role you’re looking for

This is a truly special organization to be a part of and they look to make every day extraordinary for the children they care and support, because they believe in every single one of them. You would be working in a small 5 bedded home. It’s not often that they look to recruit, they have a very low staff turnover and a long-established staff team. There is plenty of training and support available to help you flourish. 

Responsibilities

As their Support Worker, your role will be pivotal in helping the young people achieve positive futures. No child should be excluded, so they have created a warm and safe environment where all the children can feel a sense of belonging and be valued for who they are. You will help them with every day life skills and encourage them to participate in activities, helping them find what they are passionate about, so they can grow up into the person they want to be.

What qualifications & experience are required?

  • It is preferred that you have experience working with children/young adults or have personal experience of working with people with learning disabilities;
  • You will ideally hold an NVQ level 3 in Children and Young People’s Workforce or Residential Childcare.
  • It is essential that you are a car driver due to the partly rural location.

If you’re looking for a job that is not only rewarding but also offers a great career, then this could be what you’re looking for.  This provider will also help you obtain further qualifications, so this may just be the start for you. Helping a child achieve their goals is a wonderful feeling.

If you are excited by this amazing job opportunity, we would love to hear from you. We are proud to recruit for the Social Care Sector and when you click on apply, one of our friendly careers advisors will contact you to discuss this in more detail. We only employ experts, so you can always rely on us to look after you during your career change.

This role is commutable from Horsham (31mins), Chichester (21mins), Worthing (29mins), Portsmouth (41mins) and surrounding areas.
