Children&39;s Residential Worker


Job Description

Playing a game, eating lunch together, visiting a beach. They’re everyday things. But in this job, they’re powerful tools: for building trust, creating memories and improving young lives. Because the children in our care have faced more challenges than most, and it’s our job to help them realise their potential and integrate back into their communities.

In our residential services, children live in small community houses and learn at our purpose-built school, all supported by caring professionals like you. It’s a place made with positive experiences and a clear structure somewhere to heal in time, grow as individuals and succeed in the future.

As a Children’s support worker, you will work with Children who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes in all aspects of their daily lives e.g. keeping safe, meaningful activities, community involvement, physical health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing.

Which makes this a job with incredible impact. You’ll play a vital role in assessing children’s needs and supporting the Lead Practitioners in implementing positive and robust care plans. As part of a close-knit team, you’ll take a ‘whole-child’ approach.

Whilst a qualification in social care and previous experience in a care or education role would be an advantage, what is just as important is that you have an emphatic approach with the ability to see beyond behaviour to the reasons why. We can provide the rest of the training that you need and because we need to get our children out and about you’ll also need a driving licence

Even though CrossReach is one of Scotland’s largest social care organisations with services across the country, we genuinely value the individual. For professionals like you, it means being part of an environment where you can contribute ideas, have your needs recognised and achieve your ambitions.

This post attracts a sleepover allowance of £52.48 per night.

We also offer you a range of benefits that you would expect from an organisation that support others.

Firstly, there is access to a wide range of exclusive retail and leisure discounts through our rewards scheme and the Blue Light Discount card. We also ensure that your future and that of your loved ones is secured with a generous contributory pension plan and death in service benefit. Balancing work and family are made easier with our suite of enhanced family friendly policies and your health and wellness are prioritised with access to our health cash plan, giving you cash back for a wide range of health treatments. We even have access to a care concierge service to assist you with life’s challenges, providing invaluable support when you need it most.

But we also know that your training and development is important to you, and we are keen to support you in making the right steps to learn, grow and develop in ways that are right for you.

As we do our work in Christ’s name you must be respectful of our Christian Ethos and be able to work within it.
