The job

We are recruiting C&YP Practitioners to work exclusively on night shifts in our all-female residential setting for young care leavers, aged 16-17 years old.

Practitioners working nights build warm, caring and empowering relationships with young women through: supporting their social and emotional development; engagement in evening sports, culture, and arts activities; and in responding to incidents and accidents. 

This is an important and significant role in helping young care leavers thrive and fulfil their potential.

The full-time position is exclusively night shift working, 8.30pm to 8.30am, over 3 nights per week with occasional weekend working.

The part-time position is exclusively night shift working, 8.30pm to 8.30am, at weekends.

We are passionate about learning and development and committed to providing an outstanding experience for all Practitioners, both full-time and part-time.

  • Experience of working with young people - e.g., mentor, coach, TA, youth/community work, mental health, volunteering.
  • A commitment to making a difference to young people in care – building warm and caring relationships and organising and participating in evening activities.
  • Strong values and a commitment to inclusion, diversity and equality.
  • An understanding of the impact of trauma and secondary trauma.
  • An ability to understand, recognise and respond appropriately to risk.
  • Ambition matched with a desire for continuous professional development.

Salary & Benefits

We believe all staff should be paid well for work that delivers excellent services and changes the lives of young people in and leaving care.

As a result we offer:

  • Competitive Sector Salary (including options to flex working hours up or down) + Work Related Travel + Pension Contribution
  • Generous Annual Leave - 37 Days pro-rata, including Bank Holidays.
  • Wellbeing Budget (£25 per month for all staff to encourage self-care)
  • Monthly wellbeing time
  • Training and Support – online modules, group training and personal training budget
  • Line Management and Therapeutic 1:1 Supervision, and Therapeutic Group Supervision monthly

No agencies please.


Most of us can count on our families for love, support and guidance when we need it most. But young people in care have to grow up without this safety net. And at age 18, the limited support they do receive drops substantially at a really critical time.  This lack of support can leave them feeling abandoned and vulnerable and facing a future of further disadvantage.

We're here to fill that gap and to support young care-leavers on their journey into adulthood. We help them move towards practical, financial, social and emotional independence and a happier and more fulfilling future.
