The role:

We are currently looking for a number of Life Preparation & Transition Night Support Workers to assist students in their homes (on-site) (no personal care responsibilities). Come and join an exciting team and make a difference.


As a Night support worker, you will play an important role in young people’s lives, preparing them for adult life and facilitating their transition into further education, training, or employment.

 

Following a handover from the day team, you’ll support the students with their evening routine. You will mentor and support the young people in their evening activities, sports, or hobbies both on and off site and ensure they settle for night. This will be with the use of verbal and visual prompting dependent on the need of the young person. 

 

You’ll also provide a key liaison point for parents and carers and ensure all health/medical needs are looked after throughout the night. You will be the listening ear and emotional support for young people to talk to after a busy day.

 

The key to this role will be your ability to participate and to motivate whilst ensuring the students develop their own independent living skills.


Integritas Education Recruitment Ltd is acting as an employment business for this position.


Successful applicants will be subject to pre-employment safeguarding checks including an enhanced disclosure and barring service (DBS) check.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and we are therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
