Do you want to go to work every day, knowing you're making a real difference in the lives of children?

You, a Children's Support Worker will play a crucial role in providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment for young residents. You will act as a professional parent, providing nurturing care for young people.

On top of the great starting pay, you will be rewarded with some great benefits including fully funded training and qualifications, employee discounts, life assurance and more.

A large part of your role is being involved in activities with the children, being creative, getting outdoors and having lots of fun! If you have an existing hobby you could bring, even better! Your characteristics are what's important to succeed in this position.
