Are you a passionate and inspirational leader? Do you have what it takes to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people? Our remarkable staff do every day.

We are looking for an outstanding Head of Care to lead our committed and passionate staff.

We operate three Children's Homes and a Residential School situated in Ripon, North Yorkshire.

We support children and young people with a wide range of difficulties including complex needs. The Residential School provides education and care through a mixture of individualised programmes and a broad curriculum to learn, progress and work towards child and young person's personal best.

Our ethos is simple yet effective. We aim for every child and young person to reach their maximum potential both academically and extramurally.

We firmly believe that our staff are central to helping us achieve this, which is why we will provide you with ongoing training and development, frequent supervision and extensive opportunities for progression. We are committed to staff retention, development and equality.

You will have the overall responsibility for all three of our Children's Homes. Each Home is fully supported by a Home Manager.

You must be willing to go above and beyond for our children and young people - ensuring that they have an experience of childhood that they can reflect upon and carry with them into adulthood.

In return, we are offering a career defining opportunity to impact on an organisation that is ambitious in its vision to provide children and young people with a high standard of specialised and individualised care.
