Children and Young People’s Team Leader - Care (Days)  
Dartington, Nr Totnes  
Salary: £22,609.60 - £24,440.00  
Working hours: 40 hours per week - full time  

We are looking for an inspirational Team Leader to join our team at Robins, our 10 bed Residential & Respite Home in Dartington.  

Children and young people with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do, and we want every person we support to have a great life with excellent outcomes. We couldn’t achieve that without all of our great support teams. It all starts with you!  

As a Team Leader, you will be managing, supporting and guiding a team of support workers who strive to deliver quality care whilst making a difference to all our children and young people. As well as leading your team, you will also be responsible for actively safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the young people in the home.  

Our staff come from lots of different backgrounds, people with little or no experience but want a job that involves helping people, those who want a change of career as well as experienced support staff. The one thing that links them all together is their desire to work with young learning disabled people, make their lives better, and help them to learn something new or take a further step towards independence. Our staff certainly don’t see what they do as ‘just another job’.  

No two days will be the same as you will be supporting your team to deliver a variety of different tasks and activities whilst helping the young people to learn the skills they need to live the life they choose.  

As a full-time Team Leader on days, you will work a pattern of 2 days on, 2 days off and as shifts are planned in advance, you will know exactly what your work pattern is so that you can plan your life outside of work. A typical term-time day shift is 14:30 - 21:30 and during school holidays and weekends the shift is usually 08:00 – 20:00. In addition, you will also be required to work some early morning shifts during term time.  

Ideally, you will have previous experience in this sector and must hold a Level 3 Diploma in Residential Childcare (or equivalent). In return, we would like to support you in making care work your career, offering you an extensive induction on commencement of employment and an amazing array of training opportunities. We will also work with you on your own individual development plan to help you to progress your career and become our management for the future.  

We are a well-established charity that provides an excellent range of staff benefits including 30 days’ annual leave on starting, a company pension scheme and a staff discount scheme.  

Lifeworks is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults and they expect all staff to share this commitment. For this post, pre-employment checks will be carried out, references will be sought, and successful candidates will need to undertake an enhanced DBS check.  

As a Disability Confident Employer, we are committed to encouraging applications from applicants who declare they have a disability, provided they meet the minimum job criteria as specified in the person specification, by offering a guaranteed interview.  

PLEASE NOTE: In accordance with the Children’s Home Regulations 2015, applicants need to be 21 years or over to be able to work at Robins.
