COMPANY: KARMA HEALTH & WELLBEING
JOB TYPE: Permanent, FullTime
On behalf of my client we are recruiting for **Senior Support Worker** for a School in Staffordshire. This is an independent residential school for children with Autism from the age of 5-19 years.
**Level 3 Residential Childcare qualification is desirable but not essential for this role. Successful applicants will ideally have previous experience of working with young people with challenging behaviour.**
As a Residential Senior Support Worker you will be a key member of a Children’s Home providing high standards of person-centred support and care to young people throughout their day-to-day life. You must have a creative and caring approach, and build good relationships with both students and their families, supporting them in the planning of goals and in living as independently as possible at the Children’s home.
Successful applicants will be required to provide a range of support services including help with personal care and helping to develop social skills and home skills to students in their residential setting.
This is a physically demanding role and staff will also need to have the confidence to deal with the challenging behaviours that autism can present. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all our employees to share in this commitment.
**The Salary is up £18,700 per annum.**
