About the role
Morton on Swale Children’s Resource Centre provides support to children and young people with disabilities by offering short breaks and day care to them and support them to access local facilities, and have adventures. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic about involving all of our young people within the community and in centre based activities.
Many young people we support have autism with varying levels of challenging behaviours. Some young people have complex health needs requiring additional support with moving and transferring, and some medical procedures for which you would receive training.
The role requires staff to work shifts including early mornings, evenings, sleep ins and waking nights as appropriate to the post they apply to.
Permanent staff are required to work 26 weekends per year to meet the needs of the service. Weekends and school holidays are our busiest times. The rota is planned across the month rather than week by week.
We are looking for part time, relief and waking night staff to join our committed team at Morton on Swale Children’s Resource Centre.
We need passionate, committed, creative, enthusiastic and highly skilled child focussed professionals with a positive approach and an understanding of safeguarding practice in a registered childcare setting. You should be an effective communicator who can adapt the way you communicate to engage young people who may not use words to speak.
You should have a level 3 Diploma in Childcare (NVQ3 equivalent) or the willingness to complete an apprenticeship as part of your role to a level 4 standard.
You will need to demonstrate good recording skills, IT skills and an ability to work within professional boundaries.
In return for your commitment to us, you will work within a supportive and child focussed team, receive regular training, supervision, appraisal and have lots of fun.
If you would like to discuss any of these opportunities further please contact Lisa Forbes (Manager) on 01609 532129.
Closing date: 19th January 2022
Interview date: 24th – 25th January 2022
We look forward to exploring your interest and receiving your application.
