Senior Residential Care Workers

About us and the roles

We are now developing an exciting children’s home service in Staffordshire Moorlands that will provide a safe and nurturing home, where children and young people can feel relaxed, feel in control of their environment, empowered, and engage in social and recreational activities.

We are inviting applications from caring and creative people, who are highly motivated and enthusiastic as we embark on our first Children’s Home – we are looking for Senior Residential Care Workers.

We can provide supported transitions into our other services such as our group living care, before taking on a tenancy should this be desired. Therefore, successful candidates will be expected to undertake shifts in other Bedspace services (semi-independence, solo-placements, group living etc) to learn what we do as an organisation.

Shifts are from 2:30pm - 3pm the following day with a sleep between 11pm and 7am. The annual salary is based on working 9 shifts per 4 week rota including sleeps, at a rate of £13.07 per hour and £50 per sleep. There is also an expectation to attend team meetings and training sessions. Where these fall outside of rota’d hours, these will be paid as extra.
