Westborough Road Family are recruiting!
We support children and young people to overcome their daily challenges to empower them to live a life they love. We see ourselves as one big family and that s the best thing about this job... "WE ARE FAMILY" We hope you just sang that, out loud
We love to see the fun side to things. Because we re supporting children and young people to overcome any traumas and difficulties and help them get back on track. This takes a lot of strength from the children and young people and our work family too. In fact it s more than strength it s a superpower that we help the young people to discover!
Wouldn t it be amazing if you could help someone to discover or build on their own superpower and achieve greatness together? One of the individuals we support has recently developed his speaking and communication skills and can now hold more conversations
We love to get out and about and do lots of fun activities such as going to the cinema, the zoo, day trips to London, hot chocolate days, Halloween parties and summer parties.
We want the best for everyone we support and that's what makes us a family. If you have the ability to support someone to feel at home, be their true self, and do what makes their heart happy - we want to hear from you. This is a meaningful role and will suit someone who is looking to make a difference and make memories and friends to last a lifetime.
We know our staff put 100% into building brighter futures for the individuals we support. That's why we offer career progression no matter where you start in the organisation. Your progress here will be regularly reviewed and as you gain expertise your rate of pay will increase. We believe in creating a Career from Care and we want the support workers we recruit now to become our managers of the future!
In regards to benefits, at Salutem, any day can be a payday. That s right, you can withdraw up to 30% of your wages via Wagestream, so if you need some cash, we ve got you covered.
As a keyworker in the Care sector, you ll qualify for discounts with a Blue Light card and we re signed up to Perkbox which offers over 200 exclusive perks and discounts. If you qualify for a pension scheme and choose to opt in, we ll support you to pay into this. We also have a healthcare scheme you can opt into that looks after you when you need it most.
We enjoy using our internal staff communications app, Blink, where everyone has a voice and can lean on each other for daily support, and celebrate success too.
We have a massive duty of care towards those we support who are often the most vulnerable in society, which is why our staff are encouraged to keep up to date with vaccines and focus on self-care too.
We hope this gives you a little glimpse into this role and vibe of our organisation.
So if you have a brilliant sense of humour, you can see the bright side of a situation, and you re willing to share some good times with young people who need someone to help them through a tricky time - have a think about joining our work family and make a difference to someone's life.
