About the role 

We’re looking for Children’s Residential Care Workers to join our ever-growing team here at The Mulberry Bush. In this role, you'll be a role model and mentor, and play a key part in the support system for children who have experienced significant trauma. You'll play a vital role in helping them build healthy relationships and discover the benefits of education. It's tough, it's challenging but it's incredibly rewarding.

We'll look to you to:

  • Plan and provide child-centred cultural, physical, play and recreational activities
  • Think creatively about – and contribute to – effective care planning
  • Provide appropriate therapeutic relationships with the children
  • Develop your understanding of therapeutic childcare practice
  • Monitor the care and treatment of your assigned children within the household
  • We require sleep-ins once a week and rotated sleep-ins on weekends

Working 40-hour week with two shift patterns either Tuesday to Saturday or Sunday to Thursday.

We'll care for you too

You're not just part of a team, you're part of our family. Support echoes through every part of our community, and your colleagues are always here to lend a hand or share a smile. We also offer the following benefits to make your journey with us even more rewarding:

  • Sleep-in allowances which means you could earn up to £6k more annually. 
  • Paid overtime (based on operational requirements)
  • A salary above sector average 
  • 50 days’ holiday each year
  • A comprehensive range of informal and formal wellbeing support
  • Employer contribution pension of 6%

What’s more, we’re deeply invested in your professional growth and development. As part of your role, you’ll have the opportunity to complete a fully accredited and funded Foundation Degree (FdA) in Therapeutic Work with Children and Young People, run by The Mulberry Bush and validated by the University of the West of England. 

About you 

We're looking for someone who embodies resilience, empathy, and a deep commitment to making a positive impact. Someone who can believe in the untapped potential of these children when others have given up. Drawing on your life experiences, you can provide valuable guidance and support to help them thrive. You'll also need:

  • Desire to undertake further education / training 
  • Training or qualifications that demonstrate a clear ability to communicate effectively and think critically
  • A valid and full UK driving licence
  • The legal right to live and work in the UK
