Deputy Team Leader - Children and Young People's Services
Salary: £18.000 - £20.000 Location: Nottingham, Lincoln, Coventry (3 roles)
Castle Recruitment Solutions are currently working with a hugely successful provider of semi-independent accommodation for young people, and have an opportunity for a deputy team leader to join their growing ranks. This role will be based in the Lincoln area.
The company specialise in providing a supportive environment where young people are able to work with staff to build confidence and to receive support to deal with the varying issues they may have. Here they will be supported to learn basic life skills such as how to look after a home, how to cook for themselves and how to access appropriate support, such as health services, when needed.
As the young people progress opportunities will be made for work experience, voluntary work, part time work or college as appropriate, all building up to the point that the young person leaves and moves into full independence.
This role has been created due to recent expansion.
The company offers a supportive working environment, ongoing training and development, and opportunity for progression into higher roles as the company expands.
In order to be successful, you should have a minimum of 3 years experience working with young people in a similar setting, and have gained some experience of conducting staff supervisions.
Your role will be to support the team leader in the supervision of the staff team, whilst actively working with the young people towards agreed outcomes. You may from time to time be asked to provide direct supervision to one or more staff members.
As this role will involve travelling to the various homes that the company have, ideally you will hold a full driving licence and have access to a vehicle for work purposes. If you do not already have a full DBS check registered online, you will need to have a new check processed before commencing employment.
This position is for 37.5 hours per week and you will be required to complete 2 sleep shifts per week and work 2 weekends per month. There is the potential for progression in the role, initially up to team leader level.
