Hours: 37 per week
The ARC has been running since September 2009, offering a countywide service to children, young people and their families. We provide a flexible service which supports placements, and our own specialist foster carers. We appreciate that not every teenager wants our help but when they do need a helping hand in life we hope we can offer them the support they need.
The ARC Workers are part of a specialist multi-disciplinary team, putting in place intensive care packages to provide holistic support to young people who have experienced developmental trauma. Our staff have been trained to work to the Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency model, which equip them with the skills needed to work with young people who have complex needs, helping them to build secure attachments and become self-reliant.
Experience in social care and of working with children, young people and families goes without saying. You will also be required to work some weekends supporting the ARC residential home which requires working shifts. Full Driving Licence is essential.
So, if you can demonstrate an absolute commitment to improving the lives of children and young people then apply to join our team, where, if appointed, you will receive a full induction and specialist training to help make a difference in a challenging but rewarding environment.
For an informal discussion please contact Joe Harris on 01707 343630.
