ake a Difference in a Child’s Life: Join the Team of Residential Childcare Workers

Are you passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of children and young people? Do you thrive in a dynamic environment where every day brings new challenges and rewards? If so, we encourage you to consider a fulfilling career as a Residential Childcare Worker.

The East Midlands faces a growing need for dedicated and compassionate individuals to care for children and young people aged 11 – 19 in residential care settings. These children come from diverse backgrounds and have experienced various challenges, and they require a stable, nurturing environment to heal and thrive.

Residential Childcare Workers play a vital role in shaping the lives of these children. Providing them with emotional support, guidance, and daily living skills, fostering their development and helping them reach their full potential. This is more than just a job; it’s an opportunity to make a lasting difference in someone’s life.

All colleagues are offered competitive salaries along with ongoing training and qualifications. Colleagues are also enrolled in the Local Government Pension Scheme and have access to a 24/7 Employee Assistance programme.

We invite anyone interested in learning more about becoming a Residential Childcare Worker to visit our website or join us at one of our up-coming drop-in events. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of children and young people in our community.

Suanne Lim, Director Early Help & Children’s Social Care at Derby City Council commented:

“I am proud to say that I started my career working in children’s residential homes over 20 years ago. This not only provided an opportunity to make a direct and positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children, but experience gained enabled me to progress into a range of roles which laid the ground for my current post of Director. From working directly within a children’s home to being responsible for all of Derby’s homes and wider services for children, it has been a rewarding journey.

“The sense of community and shared commitment to improving the lives of children created an uplifting work environment and I would whole heartedly recommend you take the next step and apply for a career for life.”
