We provide supported accommodation services for young people preparing them for independent living. Linx 16 plus is a bespoke transition solution created to support young people to live a valued lifestyle within the community. We provide a supportive environment for young people, assisting them with further education or encouraging them to get into a career.
Linx 16 plus in Hatfield is made up of 4 homes each providing a 24/7 service for our young people. We have various shift patterns available including long and short days, shifts vary between 8am and 10pm and waking night shifts are between 9pm and 9am. We are looking for staff that can be flexible between these hours and are happy to work weekends on a rota basis, usually one weekend on, one weekend off.
Our Hatfield homes specialise in providing support for young people who are leaving care, are in danger of being homeless, are unaccompanied minors seeking asylum, pregnant teenagers and parent and child. Each young person has their own life story, wishes and feelings and we understand this, building packages of support to meet their individual needs.
The teams in Hatfield work closely with social care workers, mental health teams and local colleges to ensure a clear support plan with set objectives for our young people. All of our staff are enrolled onto a level 3 Diploma in Residential Childcare and are fully trained so that they excel and progress, with our full support, in their chosen career at Linx 16 plus.
At Linx 16 plus, Hatfield, no day is the same - one day you might be hiking up a mountain, the next you might be supporting a Young Person to appointments, or using your culinary skills to teach Young People to prepare and cook a nutritious meal. We are looking for compassionate, empowering, and friendly individuals who can really make a difference to our Young People. A good sense of humour helps.
