Suffolk County Council are looking for people like you to help develop and grow our children and young people of Suffolk.

Join us in impacting upon young people’s lives by being creators of positive change.

We welcome applications from candidates of all experience, including:

  • Residential Care
  • Youth Work
  • Learning Support
  • Health Care
  • Education
  • Family Support.

Our residential homes are open 365 days per year, therefore, you will be required to work as part of a rota which consists of nights (sleep-in), evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

It is desirable that you have a Level 3 Diploma in Residential Child Care, however if this is not the case, Suffolk County Council are committed to developing the skills of its staff and will offer full support and training for you to achieve this industry recognised qualification.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role, you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.

For an informal discussion please call Nick Moran on (01473) 264172.

Please read the Job and Person Profile before applying for this role.

This authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS checks or police vetting will be required for relevant posts. We are also committed to flexible working.  For the types of flexible or part time working available for specific roles, please see the Job and Person Profile. Suffolk County Council - welcoming diversity.
