Senior Support Worker 

Cambian Southlands School

Salary: £13.09ph

Hours: 40 hours per week

Location: Lymington, Hampshire

Located in a beautiful building with scenic surroundings, our school and homes help educate and care for young people with a range of communication, behavioural, social and emotional difficulties. Our young people are intellectually high functioning and we pride ourselves on being able to engage every person with interesting and stimulating activities.

As a Support Worker at Southlands School, you’ll be part of a supportive and talented team, working together to help our children and young people grow up to be the best that they can be.

This is a stimulating role, so we are looking for committed, empathetic and engaging people. Perseverance, resilience and understanding are crucial as our young people often have difficulties in social situations and can get frustrated. Through spending time with them, you’ll have the opportunity to make real connections and see how each of your students improves and progresses through the support they receive at Southlands.

You'll have the opportunity to learn and grow too. If you require it, full training and support is provided to achieve a nationally recognised Level 3 Health and Social Care qualification. Many of our team who started as Support Workers have progressed through our team into more senior positions and we welcome anyone looking to take their career forward with Cambian.

Requirements for an Enhanced DBS and reference checking will be undertaken in line with government regulations and safer recruitment best practice. Whilst we endeavour to keep the recruitment process as short as possible due to the nature of these important checks it may extend the processing time. All young people are equally entitled to have their needs met in a fair and balanced way. Cambian Group employees are responsible for promoting equal opportunities for all and for challenging behaviour or practice which discriminates against any young person or colleague on the grounds of race, religion, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation or any other perceived difference.

We will conduct online searches of shortlisted candidates. This check will be part of a safeguarding check, and the search will be purely based on whether an individual is suitable to work with children. As care must be taken to avoid unconscious bias and any risk of discrimination a person who will not be on the appointment panel will conduct the search and will only share information if and when findings are relevant and of concern.
