We are looking for an outstanding Senior Residential Support Worker to join our Children's Home located in Stockport.

When we say Home, we really mean it. We endeavour to create a home environment that exceeds the needs of our children and young people - enabling them to express their characters, feel safe and enrich their lives.

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.
