YOUNG ADULT RESIDENTIAL SUPPORT WORKERS with Specialist Education Services
Salary £18,065 to £20,751 (depending on experience) plus sleeping in bonus as per rota
SES has 15 years of outstanding practice in caring for and educating looked after children with complex social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We are excited to announce that we are starting a new venture designed to serve vulnerable care leavers who, post 18, require and will benefit from a highly personalised, community based, residential provision.
This venture to provide a very much needed service within the adult services sector will be delivered by SES under the newly incorporated SES Kite Ltd. This starts with the opening of Tower Hill, a three bedroom house based in Beccles, which will provide care and ongoing development and learning for two vulnerable young adults. Tower Hill will open and be operational in September 2020.
We are looking for Young Adult Residential Support Workers to assist the Manager in providing all aspects of care and further educational development of the young adults residing at Tower Hill.
You don’t need to have any care qualifications to apply for this position but experience of working with children or young adults with social, emotional and mental health complexities would be beneficial. Staff without a relevant qualification will be supported to complete a Level 3 Diploma in Care.
You will need to be qualified in English Language or Literacy to a Level 1 standard and hold a full UK driving licence. Due to the nature of the role you will be required to have your own transport.
As the homes provide care and support for young adults 24 hours a day, the position involves working shifts (with occasional sleep ins). The shift pattern is based on a 37 hour week.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and young adults and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointments are dependent on a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure.

Closing date for application is Friday 10 July 2020
Interviews will be held on Friday 17 July 2020
