Are you looking to work in a rewarding environment with Young People? Would you describe yourself as a passionate, understanding and positive role model?
I am currently looking for a residential support worker to join a thriving therapeutic support provider in the Leicester area, who would be joining a residence that provides a nurturing, supportive, structured and stable environment around the clock.

About the role:
Your role will involve mentoring, educating and supporting the young people (8-18) who have EBD, Autism and Learning difficulties – all while allowing personal and practical development. You will report and record certain aspects of care, in order to monitor development.
What will you bring to the role?
In this support role, you will need to be confident, energised and committed – ensuring you are a positive role model to residents and staff alike. You must be comfortable dealing with challenging behaviour/EBD.
