Job Details

No Wrong Door provides support to North Yorkshire’s most vulnerable young people who experience complex and challenging needs. The role proactively provide support and interventions to young people 12-25 so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes in life.

We are looking for a Residential and Edge of Care Hub worker to work within the No Wrong Door Hub in Harrogate. These posts support the Portfolio Leads (shift leaders) to proactively provide the support and interventions young people need so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes in life.

The post holder will be responsible for the direct day-to-day care of young people within a residential home accompanied by other supportive tasks and duties. Additionally, the post holder will also provide support to young people on the edge of care, accommodated in the various other hub placements, and care leavers (including post 18 living in the community). The post holder will work within a defined culture and intervention practice model and will adopt a solution focussed and restorative approach.

This is a challenging position that will be suited to a flexible, resilient and positive applicant. As a designated keyworker for a range of young people receiving support from NWD, you will work as part of a 24/7 rota including evenings and weekends on a rota basis. Key working is integral to this post; working ‘with’ young people to develop their resilience and life skills to enable them to successfully manage the transition to independence.

Key characteristic requirements of this post are: flexibility, commitment, building effective relationships, resilience, persistence and the ability to progress plans for young people. All staff will have a commitment to integrated working involving good interagency working that requires positive relationships with partner services, agencies and organisations. You will work closely with these young people to support them and their families using a range of tools and interventions. This role is critical to building relationships and trust with the most vulnerable and complex young people in North Yorkshire – and will ‘stick with’ each young person through some of their most challenging points in their lives. Sleep in Allowance, 5% weekend working allowance

The County of North Yorkshire is the largest County in England and Wales. Within the county are 598 square miles of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and 530 square miles of the North York Moors National Park. The county is included in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region.

Whilst the economy of the County has traditionally been dependent on agriculture and tourism, there is a fast growing high technology base and this, together with other forms of light manufacturing industry, is of increasing importance. The County Council has an active policy of economic development and the predominantly rural character of the County is highly attractive to high technology businesses as well as the traditional industries of farming, food production and tourism. The County contains several centres of great historic interest, market towns that invite light industrial development, the modern coalfield area in the South, scenic, lightly populated upland areas and the extensive lowland area in the Vale of York.
