Connex Education is currently seeking Children's Residential Support Workers to help meet the demand for flexible shift based cover in the Stourbridge area.

We're seeking committed and enthusiastic candidates with the skills, experience, and drive to work closely with vulnerable 8-18 year olds in the West Midlands health and social care sector. This role will primarily involve supporting children with SEN such as SLD and ASD so the ability to identify and cater for specific learning needs is highly valuable.

Main duties in this position are based around contributing towards children's care in accordance with care plans, keeping them safe from harm while supporting their development and promoting their independence. Working hours will fall between 7am and 9pm on a shift rota, providing the successful applicants with the chance to manage their availability and work-life balance.

Ideal applicants will have:

- A relevant social care qualification
- At least 12 months of previous experience working with children in supported housing
- A DBS on the update service
- A clean driving licence with access to a car
- A relevant physical intervention qualification (MAPA, etc)

This is a great way for you to build your experience as a Children's Support Worker in Stourbridge, taking back control of your availability in the process. If you're interested in working flexibly with Connex then apply with us today to hear more soon!
