Waking Night Residential Childcare Workers Wanted to work within our expanding children's service in Dumfries
10 hours per shift, £10.00 per hour
You will be working with our amazing young people in our ACAD service
You must hold a driving licence due to the location of the service and the nature of the role

Have you ever thought about getting into care, but were unsure how? What if we told you it's not all about the qualifications and experience but equally as important to us is your positivity, friendliness, determination and innovativeness? Would you love the opportunity to make a real difference to our amazing Young People’s lives? How would you like to work in a person-centred environment where you can utilise these attributes within a company offering career progression, competitive earnings and excellent training? It sounds like a career in care is for you!

Offering a superior service for Young People with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, a warm welcome awaits you at ACAD, one of our well known CareTech services in Scotland. We are seeking caring, compassionate and committed Waking Night Residential Childcare Workers to provide the support that allows our extraordinary Young People to lead the best lives possible.

At CareTech, we have over 250 Services as far North as Inverness and as far South as Kent, and all areas in between. We are looking for enthusiastic, person-centred individuals who share the same passion for care as we do! Whilst the role of a Waking Night Residential Childcare Worker offers variety, superb progression opportunities and training, it takes a courageous and committed individual to really succeed at the role. Whilst commercial experience and qualifications aren't essential, you will have a positive attitude, friendly persona and a caring yet strong nature in order to succeed. As a Waking Night Residential Childcare Worker you will not only be working closely with our Young People but also within our staff team - each and every person is an individual with their own personality, so the ability to communicate effectively with others is a must. As a Waking Night Residential Childcare Worker, you will ensure the full safety of others whilst developing self-awareness - you will be dealing with challenging behaviour on a regular basis so it is important that you have the strength and determination to succeed within this environment. Our Young People have varied likes and interests, whether this be singing, cooking, music or sports; sometimes they need support and this is where you come in to help them live fulfilling and independent lives.

Why CareTech?

• We provide superb FREE training to achieve qualifications in Social Care
• We have a proven progression path - most of our Registered Managers started as Support Workers with us
• We offer competitive rates of pay, along with an impressive benefits package including a flexible additional holiday purchase scheme, childcare vouchers, stakeholder pension scheme
• We offer apprenticeships to those with less experience looking to get into the sector

If you are caring, compassionate and a good communicator and would like to commit to the first stage of the process, get in touch today!

Due to the nature of the role, we will pay for you to complete an enhanced PVG check, prior to starting with us. Due to the volume of applications, if you do not receive an invitation to interview within 14 working days, then consider your application unsuccessful on this occasion, however we have other services you may be suitable for in surrounding areas for the roles below: Support Workers, Senior Support Workers, Deputy Managers, Healthcare Assistants, and Residential Managers.
