As a development team we’re only at the start of our Juno journey and it’s a really exciting time for us. We’re well on our way to making the ideas of all those young people we consulted a reality, but now we’re at a really critical juncture -we really need to get the right operational team on board (that is where you come in).

 

We’re looking for people who want the very best for children and young people, who live our values and who always have the young people we support the forefront of their minds. 

What does our team look like?

We’re currently recruiting for our Director of Care and also looking for early interest from Support Workers and others who want to be part of the project. 

As we bring about better outcomes for children, Juno will be led by the team at Capacity whilst working with some great individuals to run the day to day and help make the decisions about the development of the organisation.

The Board is in a period of growth and development as we prepare to open our first home and we are currently recruiting for a new Chair: see application process here.

Once the new Chair is in place, we will be looking for additional board members and Juno’s staff will have a key role at Board level, as shareholders of the business.

We’re still in the early days of recruiting our operational team, but even before we meet them, we know what our core delivery and management team need to feel like. We’re less worried about years of experience and certificates on the wall, and much more concerned about ethos, values and beliefs. 

 

  • You believe in equality and that no one is better than anyone else -those children have the right to be treated respectfully as equals by the adults around them. 

  • You truly understand that care is a ‘doing word’ and that the change we want to make at Juno relies on working with, not doing to, people.

  • You see and understand what’s not working within the current care system and you’re motivated to support every person and Juno (young person or adult) thrive. 

  • You may have come across the concept of social pedagogy before,  but even if you haven’t, you’ll want to learn more about it, practice it and constant checking in with these principles.

  • You  have  a  strong  track  record  delivering  top-notch  care  for  children who  have  additional emotional, behavioural and mental wellbeing needs.

  • You embrace a culture of innovation and are excited to be part of the team creating a new organisation at this challenging time. 

  • You’re a people person and want to work with others and build strong relationships with them. You’ll feel excited at working across-different sectors with lots of different people (with loads of different backgrounds) and organisations including Local  Authorities, local VCSE organisations and national care partners.

  • You are reflective, you’re always learning, and you know that no-one is the ‘finished article’. You’re able to use this perspective to keep calm with things feel challenging
