Job description

Opus People Solutions is looking for a Children's Support Worker in Spalding.

Do you want to make a real difference in the lives of children every day?

As a Children's Support Worker, you will play a vital role in providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment for young residents. Acting as a professional parent, you will offer nurturing care and support to young people.

A significant part of this role involves engaging in activities with the children, being creative, enjoying the outdoors, and having lots of fun! If you have a hobby you can share, even better! Your personal qualities are key to succeeding in this position. We're looking for naturally caring, empathetic individuals.

Your daily responsibilities will include:

  • Establishing and maintaining clear and consistent boundaries to create a safe and secure environment for young people to thrive.
  • Providing emotional and social support to help young people develop meaningful relationships and become involved in local communities.
  • Taking the children to school and various activities.

You will need:

  • A full UK driving license.
  • A passion for supporting and caring for young people.
  • Experience in a role with transferable skills, such as support worker, youth worker, carer, sports coach, teaching assistant, etc.

This role is varied and rewarding, with no two days the same. Flexibility is essential to support the children effectively. You will work a variety of shifts, including sleep-ins, which are paid an extra £62.64 on top of your pay.

In addition to a competitive starting salary, you will enjoy excellent benefits, including fully funded training and qualifications, employee discounts, life assurance, and more.
