A unique opportunity has arisen within Bristol City Council's Children Residential Service. This is an exciting time of change as we are re-profiling our existing homes to allow us to provide a therapeutic care experience for our children and to facilitate a better matching of placements.
You will work under a newly developed framework that will offer an in-depth induction and training programme, enabling you to fulfil your role. As part of the management team, you will deliver high quality managerial support to staff, enabling them to maintain a high professional standard in their work. You will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the home, and can expect that senior managers will provide you with further assistance to allow you to accomplish this role.
We want to hear from you, if like us, you have a passion for working with children who have not had the easiest start in life. Our aspirations for our children are high in all aspects of their lives, and we aim to provide a homely environment where children feel safe, loved, and nurtured.
We use a trauma informed approach in our work, to enable us to better understand the needs of our children, and to provide individual care packages.
You will be required to be willing and able to work flexibly across different locations within the Bristol area, and be available to be part of an on-call system out of hours in order to provide support and monitor standards of care within the homes.
Join us and you will receive a generous rewards package including flexible working, a member of the Local Government Pension scheme, and a generous annual leave allowance. In addition, you will be working in a supportive environment where you will have the chance to make Bristol a better place and contribute to its future.
You will require a satisfactory Occupational Health and an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check clearance before starting their employment.
