You must be able to display a passion for working with young people and support each young person in overcoming challenges to help prepare them for adult life. You will have a background in semi-independent accommodation or be experienced in working with young people.
To work in this environment, you will need to be committed to making a difference in the lives of young people. You will need to be reliable, flexible, have good personal relationships and communication skills as well as high professional standards. You will also need to be able to make sound judgments under pressure and respond effectively in a crisis as there is an element of lone working with up to 4 young people during evenings and weekends, and particularly the ability to calmly and effectively manage challenging behaviours that can be displayed by young people, as this is crucial to the role. Experience in de-escalation will be beneficial to the applicant
You will be required to complete the NVQ level 3 in Health Social Care Children and Young People as well as undertaking Norfolk County Council mandatory training.
