Oakhurst has vacancy for a Residential Social Care Worker. We are a 4 bedded specialist Children's home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. We are looking for committed and resilient individuals to work with our children. The work is challenging but rewarding, and you will be in a position to make a difference to a child’s life. Experience influences behaviour, as a result our children can display challenging and sometimes very risky behaviours. We are aspirational for the children we care for and work relentlessly to maximise their full potential in all areas of development.

The successful candidate will join a developing team, determined to work hard to meet the needs of the children we look after. Ideally you will have NVQ3/Diploma Level 3 in Residential Childcare, if not you will be required to undertake this qualification. You will also need to have at least 6 months experience within Residential Child Care.

This is a 24 hour a day service therefore you will be required to work a variety of shifts including, evening, weekends and bank holidays. Shift work has an impact on your lifestyle and you should consider this before applying! Our evening, weekend and bank holiday shifts attract enhanced payment. These can increase your basic salary by an average of £3000 per annum.

Applicants will need to ensure that when applying they evidence in as much depth as possible their answers to the shortlisting criteria.

Closing Date: 12 September 2019

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview.  A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated.  We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
