Are you playful and accepting, can you show curiosity and empathy?

If you can then you have something really special to offer our Children living in Children’s Homes.  

If trauma brings resilience, then our Children are superheroes – they deserve the best; the best homes, the best help, the best opportunities, and children tell us over and over again, it’s the staff that matter.

We believe that we need the right people, with the right commitment, skills, tenacity, imagination, and energy in order to offer the best to our children. To do this you will be offered high quality support, training, guidance, and development and be part of a motivated and ambitious team.

If you want to be part of Hull’s journey and make a real difference to children, now is great time to join. We are recruiting to positions within our Disability Children Homes, this will require personal care, moving and handling, help with aspects of high levels of supervision and support. Working with Children with a Disability is very rewarding, can be challenging and offers high support and care to children with complex health needs and disabilities which are varied across our homes.

We also have vacancies for Casual Care Officers to work on an as and when basis. Please apply and indicate in the additional information box that you are interested in Casual work.

Casual roles are to cover holidays, absence and training, and do not have a set working pattern or regular hours. Due to the long shifts that may also include sleep in shifts, the ability to be flexible as to when, and how many hours you are able to work is essential.  Where possible, work is pre-arranged however, there may be times when you will be asked to work at short notice.  Various training courses are also mandatory, which will require you to attend over several days, during weekdays. Please contact Rebecca Spaven for an informal discussion around how our scheduling works and the training you will need to attend, should you be successful.
