Here at Cambian we are dedicated to helping our children and young people develop and thrive. Our specialist Residential and Education Services ensure that everyone in our care is supported to take the next steps, every day, towards a brighter future. This means providing the commitment, guidance and empathy they need to achieve their personal best, and finding the courage and determination to achieve ours.
At Cambian you can be more than your background. More than your experience. And more than just an employee. If you have a genuine desire to transform young lives, we're ready for you.
We're now recruiting for the following roles:
Working with and providing support for young people in our specialist Schools & Colleges.
Working with and providing support for children and young people in our Residential Care Homes.
Whatever your experience, we are looking for resilient, compassionate, engaging people willing to go above, beyond, and a little bit further. This is no ordinary job description. The work will be tough and there will be challenges. But, in return, the rewards you reap will be unmatched.
The job will be varied and interesting and you will find yourself involved in every aspect of our children and young people's lives – including practical, hands on activities, offering vital emotional, guidance and support – and bringing your personal care, attention and structure to every child's unique life. Each day will bring its own set of challenges, obstacles and victories, as well as the personal rewards of working with each individual to help them achieve their personal best – whatever that may be.
Wherever your career has taken you so far, we are looking for a very special type of candidate, and we know a very special type of candidate will be looking for us. The work can be difficult and it's true - it won't suit everyone. You will need courage, a real passion for working with children and young people, enthusiasm and determination. An excellent communicator with an open and engaging style, and the ability to speak to, and from, the heart. While experience is not essential, a willingness to learn is a must.
You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with qualified and experienced professionals, gain access to formal training and qualifications which Cambian will provide, and the chance to develop a successful, deeply rewarding career with real scope for progression.
Alongside the satisfaction of making a positive difference to the lives and prospects of our young people, you will also enjoy:
