The Edge of Care Service will provide structured, evidence-based interventions that enable families to develop problem solving skills, build resilience and achieve positive, sustainable behaviour change. Our trained and experienced staff will provide a rapid response to children and families in crisis, enabling them to address and overcome the difficulties that have led to the family being at risk of breakdown, and prevent further escalation and referral to care proceedings.

Whether it's to limit the risk of children being moved into care, to address complex multiple needs across a family unit or to support the re-unification of families, we are passionate and committed to developing and delivering innovative and impactful solutions that meet need and improve the lives of children and families.

Working as a senior resource worker you will need to have relevant experience and a professional approach to carrying out all aspects of this managerial role.

Applicants must:

Have NVQ/Diploma Level 3 Residential Childcare qualification or equivalent.
Be enthusiastic and motivated to support young people and families on the edge of care.
An understanding of child development and challenging behaviour
A positive attitude and a restorative approach when working with young people.
Have experience of working with children and families.

They will also need to be able to work unsocial hours I.e.: early mornings, weekend's sleep-ins, night shift as well as school holidays, evenings and Bank holidays. Additional allowances will be paid for these hours.

The above post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
