Job Description

Senior Support Worker

Are you looking to venture into a new role in your Health and Social Care career? My client is welcoming a Senior Support Worker to their growing team based in West Sussex/Surrey. The service is made up of 4 residential homes, one of the homes also has a purpose-built school added to the site. These picturesque, Victorian-style homes specialise in working with adolescent males who have complex needs associated with sexually inappropriate behaviour, helping them learn and develop in a secure, structured and therapeutic environment.

As well as a generous starting salary of 24k rising to 25k after 6 months, you will also receive an extra 1.6k for sleep-in shifts! You will also be enrolled on the company pension scheme! You will have a 40-hour work week, and this will be paid monthly.

As an experienced senior support worker in Childcare, bearing your NVQ Level 3, you will use your compassionate nature to ensure a caring and stimulating environment for the young people taking into account their development needs in order for them to reach their full potential as well as guiding and supporting your team to promote best practice. Your organizational skills will come in handy within this job as you will be planning and preparing activities for the young people that stimulate their learning and integration within the home as well as ensuring the home is compliant with legalisation guidelines and policies with your knowledge of the Children's Act, OFSTED Guidance, Safeguarding Children procedures and Children's homes regulations.

Your pro-active attitude paired with your attention to detail will allow you to observe and assess the young people's progress and keep accurate records of their achievements, behaviour and important events in their lives. Your flexible and open-minded approach is key within this role, participating in domestic tasks within the home including meal preparation, cleaning and shopping. Your interpersonal skills will allow you to build strong relationships with parents/carers in a way that supports the young people's learning and development as well as working alongside the Manager and in partnership with your team to ensure the philosophy on the home is fulfilled.
