Catholic Care – Residential Childcare Worker

We are looking for responsible, caring people to join our fantastic team at our residential children’s home as a Residential Childcare Worker.
This is a great opportunity to start or continue your career in care, working as part of a team committed to helping children and young people with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and you will be working in a setting where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where children and young people are listened to, respected and involved in as many decisions as possible.

Our Residential Childcare Workers carry out an essential and varied role to provide the support required by the children and young people in our care.

Previous experience in a care setting would be great but isn’t essential as full training will be given, and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important. This role is ideal for people who want to make a real difference to children and young people’s lives and futures.

Already qualified to or willing to work towards your level 3 qualification in Residential Childcare, you will be calm, engaging, resilient, and be motivated to provide a safe, caring environment where every child can thrive.
Our home offers residential care for boys aged11-18 with social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

Why join us?

We offer a friendly and inclusive working environment and the chance to be part of a fantastic team, who work hard and support each other to deliver exceptional support, care and guidance giving you the opportunity to enrich the lives of young people and make a positive difference.

We are committed to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All successful applicants will be subject to a fully Enhanced DBS.
