Job Duties:

We believe our Children need a dynamic, diverse, passionate and resilient group of adults around them to enable them to achieve their full potential

Working in residential care is very much a vocation and as such we need people from a wide range of backgrounds who can offer the children and young people the diverse, safe and consistent care that they need to achieve in life.

We also recognise there may be people out there who have a desire to work with children and young people but refrain from applying due to not having the experience or qualifications to work in social care.

As an organisation we have taken the above on board and have set up an academy for residential care workers. This is to enable individuals like yourself to start your journey in social care with a program that will enable you to undertake off the job training, hands on experience and mentoring from experienced managers and senior managers. Your working week will consist of a mixture of classroom based training, shadowing, on the job training and work placements in a children’s residential home.
