We are looking for Night Support Staff who can work at an SEN Setting based in North Lancaster. The role is to support the residential adults in their daily lives.

From day one, we will train and support you, ultimately developing you into a care professional.
As a night residential care worker, you will work shifts from 21.00-09.00 and may be required to attend occasional training sessions during the day.
During these hours you will be assisting the residents throughout the night; help with morning and night routines, assist with any problems or personal care needs the young people may have, make sure the homes are clean and tidy and safeguard all the young people in our care.
Other duties include liaising with other staff, working to agreed care plans and keeping the home clean and tidy.
This is a challenging and physically demanding job but highly rewarding. Some young people may be physically or verbally aggressive and therefore, you may be required to manage their behaviour by deescalating situations and as a last resort, physically intervene.
