Oakhurst is a four bedded children’s home based in Nottinghamshire. We are looking for professional, energetic, committed and resilient individuals to work with our children in their care home. 

The children we look after have experienced acute disruption within their childhood affecting their emotional development. Due to these experiences the children can subsequently display challenging behaviour and risk behaviours. We are aspirational for the children we care for and work relentlessly to maximise their full potential in all areas of development.

The successful candidate will join a highly motivated and experienced team. You will have the opportunity to develop your own skills and knowledge both in practice and academically. This post requires the employee to undertake the Health & Social care Diploma Level 3. You will be required to work evenings & weekends with paid enhancements.

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.

The County Council welcomes applications from all, irrespective of gender, marital status, disability, race, age or sexual orientation.
