We're looking for Bank Social Care Practitioners

Updated: Jan 8

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).

The Role

Place of work: Wirral, Merseyside

Pay: £12/hour

Job terms: Part-time

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.

Bank staff primarily support when cover is needed in the home, such as annual leave, training, and sickness. The hours are flexible, and you can pick up shifts that suit you. 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.

Some of your responsibilities will include:

  • Ensure that all children and young people in Juno Oxton will receive excellent care and are supported to reach targets and achieve the best outcomes.

  • Be responsible for safeguarding children and young people, striving to meet all their needs.

  • 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 experience working in residential care

  • 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

  • Full, clean driving licence

  • Great communication skills and ability to collaborate

  • You’ll need to be comfortable with unpredictable situations and be flexible

To apply:

Fill in this form and we'll be in touch with you with the next steps.

Recruitment process:
  • You will be invited to a short informal call to meet the team and ask any questions, then, a Safer Recruitment interview

  • If successful, you will be invited to a half-day assessment event in Liverpool
