The culture within the North east residential sector is fantastic.
The teams work incredibly hard to deliver solid results for a range of young people.

The job can be challenging, but in my experience the teams are committed and truly care for the young people they support.

I had a three pronged interview to ensure I was the most appropriate person for my role. I was questioned around my knowledge base, my values and ethos and my ability to do the job role. Always go in with questions to ask at the end! Interviewers love this!

Residential care workers typically work a 13 hour day, sleep over within the home (receiving additional pay for this) and then complete a 3.5 hour morning which includes school routines and a 30 minute handover period to the following days team.
Although this may sound like long hours it is very typical within a care setting, and staff typically complete 2-3 shifts per week, resulting in a huge time off with family and friends as opposed to working 40 hours across mon-friday
