Castle Recruitment Solutions are currently working with a number of Children's homes in the Nottingham area and have an ever growing need for support staff to join our team.

The role will involve supporting children and young people, sometimes in children's homes and sometimes in a semi-independent setting. Day to day activities will vary depending on each individual but activities may include:

-Engaging young people in activities, both within the home and outside of it
-Preparing meals with the young people, ensuring that they are as involved in the process as possible
-Assisting children to get to school
-Assisting young people to search for college placements/volunteer work/paid work
-Supporting children and young people to have contact with family where appropriate

This role would ideally be suited to somebody who has at least 12 months experience working with children and young people, preferably in a residential setting. NVQ or diploma level 2 or higher would be an advantage but is not essential. Driving is not essential as the majority of the people we work with are on easy public transport routes.

To apply for this role please email your CV. For more information please call (Apply online only) and ask for Shane
