An exciting opportunity to join our team at Clayfields House.

We want you to help us to make a difference to the lives of our children and young people. We believe everyone can achieve positive change and we need positive thinkers to create a ‘centre of excellence’ for young people in custody.

Clayfields House is a Local Authority Secure Children’s Home (LASCH) and is part of Nottinghamshire County Council.  We are a national resource providing secure care, education and specialist interventions for up to 20 vulnerable young people between 10 and 18 years of age

Working with our young people has its challenges and its rewards – but the outcomes can be life changing for the young people. We are looking for a few special individuals who’ve got the tenacity and drive to help turn things around for these young people.

Situated in Stapleford Nottinghamshire, just a few miles from the M1 we are easy to reach.

  • We are looking for an experienced Senior Practitioner with 3 years’ experience who has worked with challenging young people. You will hold a Diploma or NVQ Level 3 in CCYP or an equivalent qualification.
  • You will support us in managing one of our living units, so the ability to support and lead staff delivering high quality is crucial for this role.
  • Ability to case manage a number of young people and drive forward a multi-agency approach to meeting their needs.
  • This role involves working on a shift basis and involves senior sleep in duties.
