Working in Residential Child Care is no ordinary job. Therefore, to fill our vacancies we only want extraordinary people.

We are a 3-bedded specialist Children’s home and we are looking for committed and resilient individuals to work with our children.

The work is challenging but rewarding. You will be in a position to make a positive difference to children’s lives.

Experience influences behaviour. As a result our children can display challenging and sometimes very risky behaviours. We are aspirational for the children we care for and work relentlessly to maximise their full potential in all areas of development. 

You will join an experienced team, determined to work hard to meet the needs of the children we look after. Ideally you will have NVQ3/Diploma Level 3 in Residential Childcare. If not you will be required to undertake this qualification. You will also need to have at least 6 months experience working in a child care setting.

Lyndene is a 24-hour children’s home that provides specialist care for our children. Wake night workers work a set rota covering 3 shifts one week and 4 the next. You will work alternative weekends, the rota also includes some bank holidays.

Our weekend and bank holiday shifts attract enhanced payment therefore increasing your basic salary.

Applicants will need to ensure that when applying they evidence their experience, and this can include examples of practise. The more information supplied will determine shortlisting criteria.

Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
