We are looking for a diverse group of loving, compassionate and creative people, who will be able to build supportive relationships with children (mainly teenagers).

As a bank residential care practitioner, you will build relationships with young people on an individual and group basis, engaging in fun and practical activities with them, both in and outside the home.

Due to the nature of the role, you will need to be able to cover shifts at short notice and we do ask that you do a minimum of three shifts a month so that you can build meaningful relationships with children in our care, and the wider team.

Maintain accurate records, in line with our policies and adhere to the requirements of Ofsted.
Help provide a warm, comfortable home by maintaining a clean, safe, and welcoming environment.
Work with the wider system of professionals for each child, and with children's families and communities of origin to sustain links and understand past problems.
Who are we looking for?
In the role, we want Bank colleagues who are nurturing and caring, honest and reliable. People who are positive role models for our children and young people, who can bring fun, laughter, and activities to encourage and form positive relationships with children and young people.
You will have:
At least 1 year of voluntary or paid experience in working with 10-20 year olds
An understanding of the risks and issues facing children in care
An understanding of how to keep children safe and protect them from abuse, neglect, exploitation or other types of harm
