No Wrong Door provides support to North Yorkshire’s most vulnerable young people. Our young people have complex needs and have experienced early childhood trauma. This role is to work as part of the established team in delivering support and interventions to young people aged between 12 and 25.
If you are dedicated to improving life chances for teenagers; if you are passionate about making a difference; if you are resilient, compassionate, child-focussed and driven to work in a fast-paced and busy team, then this is the job for you. We have the highest aspirations for all the young people we care for and our aim is to provide the scaffold for them to achieve the best possible outcomes in life.
We are looking for full time Hub Workers to work within the No Wrong Door Hub in the East of the county. This role supports the staff team in providing the highest level of residential care. If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding job we would like to hear from you.
You will be responsible for the day-to-day care of young people within our residential home. The approach we adopt is to create a family environment where our young people feel valued and respected. We want all the young people to gain positive experiences and memories. This is where you will make a massive difference to their lives. For example, you may take them away for a weekend to the theatre, watch a sports event, go to a concert, or anything the children want to experience. We will do everything we can so they can achieve their goals.
We want staff who are proactive and motivated to make positive changes for these young people. You will also contribute to our Edge of Care Service, providing outreach support to young people in our local community. You will need to work with a solution focussed approach, in a fast-paced environment whilst always keeping the child at the centre of all decision making. You must have the ability to meet the travel needs of this post: Please be aware that this may involve significant travel implications and will involve transporting children and families across the county.
Working with our young people can be challenging at times, and will require you to be compassionate, resilient, empathetic and non-judgemental. This role is extremely rewarding as you will find yourself influencing young people to make positive life choices, and supporting them through the difficulties of adolescence. You will need to be flexible in your approach, as this role is shift work as part of a 24/7 rota.
We are able to offer self-development and career opportunities for those with the talent and desire to progress, and can offer a role that can genuinely improve outcomes for teenagers. The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate significant knowledge and skills in adolescent childcare and have, or be willing to work towards, a Level 4 apprenticeship in Children and Young People’s Residential Pathway. Applicants must have good numeracy and literacy skills and be able to work restoratively and therapeutically.
