You will be working with young people to develop their life skills, supporting them in community and home based activities, engaging them in programmes and providing general support for their day to day needs. You will play a key role in young people lives, and as such you will really have a chance to make a difference to them and to the community in which they live.

This is a rewarding position that requires a passion for caring for people as well resilience. Flexibility is a must as you will be required to work shifts to ensure the best quality care and support is given to those who need us. You must be able to work at least one overnight shift per week.
