Support WorkerOne of our holiday play sessions.

The Children’s Respite Trust is looking for an extraordinary individual to join our team.

As a Support-Worker with the Trust you will work largely in the community, but also at our Centre in Uckfield, East Sussex, providing care for children with a wide range of disabilities and ages. The role requires considerable flexibility, as people don’t generally need the support most during the 9am to 5pm usual working day, yet in the holiday periods we need to staff up our Centre for day-care. There is also potential for weekend work.

The role is offered with a salary of £20,000 Pro-Rata and we anticipate taking on the right candidate at 15 – 20 hours per week.

The successful candidate will have experience of working with children with complex needs, including Autism, sensory needs and physical disabilities. He or she will share our belief that no family should be left to care for a disabled child alone.

Applicants should have at least completed a recognised level 2 Childcare or Health and Social Care qualification, e.g. Level 2 certificate for the Children and Young People’s Workforce or Children’s Care, Learning & Development.

The post-holder will be required to complete a DBS check and a range of mandatory training courses.
