SES Kite commenced on 4 September 2020 providing a new provision for post 18 year olds.

YOUNG ADULT RESIDENTIAL SUPPORT WORKER with Specialist Education Services

Salary £18,562 to £21,322 (depending on experience) plus sleeping in bonus as per rota

SES has 15 years of outstanding practice in caring for and educating looked after children with complex social, emotional and mental health difficulties.  In September 2020 we began a new venture, designed to serve vulnerable care leavers who, post 18, require and will benefit from a highly personalised, community based, residential provision.

We are looking for a Young Adult Residential Support Worker to join the team providing nurturing support, along with further educational and life skill development of the young adults residing at our provision in Beccles.

You don’t need to have any care qualifications to apply for this position but experience of working with children or young adults with social, emotional and mental health complexities would be beneficial. Staff without a relevant qualification will be supported to complete a Level 3 Diploma in Residential Care.

You will need to be qualified in English Language or Literacy to a Level 1 standard and hold a full UK driving licence. Due to the nature of the role you will be required to have your own transport.

As the home provides care and support for young adults 24 hours a day, the position involves working shifts (with occasional sleep ins). The shift pattern is based on a 37 hour week.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and young adults and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Appointments are dependent on a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure.

If you are interested please contact us on 01508 517000 or go to our contact page to request an application pack or for further information.

Closing date for application 8 November 2021.

Interviews scheduled for 15 November 2021.

Closing date: 08 Nov 2021
