Support Worker- Uckfield- £20,000 pro rata

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 both in the community and at our Centre in Uckfield, providing care for children with a wide range of disabilities and ages. The role requires considerable flexibility, as people generally need the most support outside of their usual working day, yet in the holiday periods we need to staff-up our Centre for day-care.

The role is offered with a salary of £20,000 pro rata and we anticipate taking on the right candidate at around 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.
