Part Time
BS Social Care Croydon are looking for experienced and qualified Children Residential workers to work in Ofsted registered homes across the Sussex areas. We are working with homes in Liphook, Littlehampton, Pulborough and Crawley.

The homes we are working with provide care to children aged up to 16, who have emotional behavioural issues and anti social behaviours. In addition, some of the children may have needs around learning disabilities and mild autistic behaviours. The services provide a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for children who have experienced different forms of trauma.

As a 24 hour service, the home requires candidates who can offer flexibilty and commitment, and are able to work early, late and night shifts. The shift times vary with each service, so please feel free to specify your availability should you wish to be considered for the role.

We are looking for candidates who have a true passion for nurturing young people. We want to speak with you if you have experience working with vulnerable children in any OFsted registered environment. You will be expected to work in line with organisations` policies and procedures as well as being aware of national guidelines outlined by OFsted. Providing support and care to children with emotional and behavioural challenges, you will be able to manage challenging, and at times, aggressive behaviours by using your pre-existing de-escalation techniques and skills to manage challenging behaviours. You will be able to engage with challenging young people, and show determination and commitment to those young people, with the aim to support them achieve their desired outcomes.

Children in residential care have more than likely experienced some form of severe trauma, which could be a result of issues including domestic violence, neglect, abuse, bereavement or family breakdowns, and more. My clients are looking for candidates who are aware of these types of issues, and the behaviours and challenges that children can present when trying to manage these issues.

- Minimum of 5 years referencing history
- NVQ level 2 or 3 in Children and Young people workforce
