Job Overview

A 12-month opportunity to support and learn from our Senior Leaders within our teams with a view towards developing your career and becoming an outstanding Young Person Mentor with a Level 3 in Residential Childcare.

You will work towards the development and delivery of Company standards, projects and initiatives into the Homes to ensure that we create an environment that nurtures the Best Outcomes for the Young Person(s) in our care as well as ensuring overall compliance with all relevant legislative requirements.

As a Young Person Mentor, you will be in a position that requires you to:
- Have a warm, empathic manner that makes each child and young person feel special and loved.
- Willing to give hugs but, recognise when giving space is needed more.
- Be a good listener and curious about what you can learn from young people.
- Understand and be resilient to the fact that young people you have a strong relationship with one week, may then refuse to talk to
or insult you a day later.
- Be able to have a lot of fun in the workplace but, also be prepared to soothe and support overwhelming emotions.
- Ability to read a ten-page personal plan with at least one interruption per page. Although you will likely have more!
- If a child or young person wants to give you a makeover or style your hair, you will be the best model you can be.
- A high level of multitasking is essential. You must be comfortable with cooking dinner whilst entertaining hungry teenagers at the
same time. And believe us when we say H-ANGER is REAL!!
- Some knowledge about football, Xbox and Tiktok videos would be helpful but, diverse hobbies and interests are a distinct
advantage.
So far it might sound like all fun and games and for a large part it is essentially is! But you will also be required to do the boring bits
which include the paperwork that comes with all looked after young people.
But do not be intimidated by this… As a company we are striving for the best and we understand that in order to achieve this we
listen to our staff and young people. In order to be the best, we believe you must learn from the best and that is why we are
dedicated to hiring the best people possible.

Essential Requirements:
* Must be 21+ due to age of clients
* Experience of working with young people, can be a different field or personal experience
* A clear DBS check (please let us know if you are on the update service or require a full DBS check)
* Teamworking
* Driving Licence
* Ability to work under pressure
* Ability to commit to changing and demanding shift patterns
* Willing to commit to the completion of an 18-month qualification that enables you to work within the sector (this will be
provided by the company and you will be given the support required to completing this – so do not PANIC!)

* Emotional and social intelligence
* Competent IT skills
* Can do attitude
