Team Leader

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Team Leader within our Breakaway service!

As the Team Leader you will be responsible for the supervision of a team of staff to ensure that young people receive a complete person-centered care service in a residential setting.

As an excellent role model, you will lead, delegate, supervise and assess the residential childcare officers’ practice.

Due to the nature of the role, there is an expectation that you will provide direct high-quality care and support to young people and work a shift pattern that includes evenings and weekends. 

If you’re looking for a new challenge and want to be part of an exciting journey to turn children’s services around in Slough, then come and join us. In return, we can offer you:

  • Training and development opportunities
  • Agile working supported by technology
  • Flexible working policies
  • Friendly working environment and great colleagues.

Slough is one of the most diverse places in the country outside of London and a great place to live or work. In fact it's the best place to live or work according to a survey by Glassdoor. Pleasant environments, above average salaries and a lower cost of living, mean an increased quality of life for employees. We're also one of the most accessible places to be, nestled on the corner of the M25, M4 and M40, and less than 20 minutes by train to Central London.

Slough Children First works within the statutory guidance, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018. Further information on how we adhere to this can be found on our website and in each candidate information pack.
