How many hats can you wear in a day?

Are you resilient, robust and resourceful? Honest, reliable, compassionate? Flexible, fun and hard-working? Do you have a background in working with children or an experienced Youth Worker looking to make the switch? Or have you been an RSW and would like to return to the sector?

If your answer is YES, then we would like you to consider a company with clear career progression and full training provided in their purpose designed children's residential settings.

For an RSW, no two days are the same, for example tonight involves:

• helping cook the tea;

• helping with homework

• playing football in the garden

But tomorrow may bring:

• attending meetings;

• addressing challenging behaviour

• writing reports

So if the hat fits, read on ...
