Break is currently looking for a Part Time Support Worker at our Residential Children’s Home in Mundesley, Norfolk. The children who live at the home have suffered numerous placement breakdowns following neglect and trauma in their early years. We work with a therapeutic and child centred approach that allows the young people to grow in our care.
The staff are trained to re-parent the young people, and to show them that they can learn to trust the adult world to keep them safe and to give them the love, understanding and nurturing that every child deserves.
This is sometimes an arduous and complex task therefore we are looking for individuals with resilience, warmth, commitment and a passion to provide them with opportunities that they will have missed in their early years, and a commitment to stand by them through some challenging times.
Candidates will need to be able to demonstrate flexibility, empathy, warmth, creativity, enthusiasm and have an ability to understand the young person's needs.
The ability to work a rota shift pattern is essential as we operate a 24/7 – 365 days a year service
Note: An additional £34.27 is paid for each sleep-in duty.
