Locharbriggs

Full-time, Permanent

Role: Trainee Childcare Assistant

 

Salary: £21,801.00 - £24,336.00 per annum (£10.75 - £12.00 per hour) Full-time, Permanent

Hours: 39 hours per week

Location: Holistic Childcare and Education, Closeburn/Lochmaben, Dumfriesshire

Essential: A full driving licence and the Right to Work in the UK

 

Everyone deserves an incredible future - become a Trainee Childcare Assistant with Options Autism to start working towards yours!

Holistic Childcare and Education consists of two homes, Closeburn House and Maben House.

Closeburn House is an eleven bed registered Children’s home, supporting Children and Young People from the ages of 10 – 16 years. Maben House is a ten bed registered Children’s home, supporting Children and Young People from the ages of 6 – 16 years.

 

Both homes are dedicated to build incredible futures by giving the Children and Young People opportunities, developing their life skills and personal interests.

Our homes are based in Closeburn and Lochmaben in Dumfriesshire and are within commuting distance of Dumfries and Lockerbie towns.

 

The opportunity

This is a role with an exciting career and development plan, structured to ensure our staff are trained, supported, and continually developed. We want to give you the best possible toolkit, to deliver outstanding care and support to our Children and Young People and help them achieve incredible outcomes.

There will be a thorough induction, fully expensed training courses, the opportunity to be enrolled on an accredited course and pairing with a buddy, which together will help you expand your knowledge, get qualifications, and prepare to become a Qualified Autism Practitioner. It is an incredible opportunity to launch your career and see it flourish.

 

The Role

Options Autism work directly with autistic Children who exhibit a wide range of abilities and you will be patient and compassionate and, most of all, dependable – working hard to forge a much-needed relationship of trust with those in your care.

This will involve creatively learning about the young person’s interests as well as their dislikes and their triggers, using that connection as a launchpad for a rewarding relationship. A passion for this kind of relationship-building is essential.

You will be responsible for the wellbeing of the Children or Young People in your care. This will include chaperoning the Children to appointments and activities, completing relevant paperwork, undertaking household tasks, and where appropriate administering medication.

Working as part of an incredible team of committed care workers, you will co-operate and share knowledge and learning to the benefit of great care. Excellent communication skills are essential, both in terms of teamwork and – most importantly – as you will be in close contact with the Children you care for.

Kindness is key. In this role, a warm smile can make a massive difference.

 

Who are we looking for?

You don’t need any experience to join our team. If you come from hospitality, the army, outdoor activity centres or an office-based job but are eager to help vulnerable Children and Young People to live happy, fulfilling lives, this is the role for you.

We know that the Children and Young People in our care can be challenging, and we are looking for Practitioners who are up for that challenge. You will be patient and resilient, and able to recognise the reward in transforming a Young Person’s life. You will take care of everyday needs, using a calm, reliable approach that builds trust and confidence.

 

You will be friendly, approachable and kind in your dealings with the Children and Young People. You will be committed to giving them the space and opportunity to thrive, playing your part in creating a nurturing environment in which they can fulfil their potential.

 

You will play a key role in the smooth-running of the site, and you will have a good grasp of safety and hygiene, and a conscientious dedication to the Young People’s wellbeing. This is a role in which attention to detail really counts – and one that touches the real lives of people every day.
