Job Reference: 20699_1531410373
Salary: Training
Salary per: Hour
Job Duration:
Job Start Date:

Our client’s Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Set in a semi-rural location within four acres of beautifully mature grounds.

Part of the specialist Education Service, the children’s home is a registered home for up to five young people aged 7 to 19 who have complex needs which may include autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) and complex associated difficulties. This home is open 52 weeks per year.

We believe that this organisation is a very special home for children and young people where daily living experiences and activities are meaningful and memorable and are designed to meet the needs of individual children in areas that are personal to them.

Children may also have challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.


As a Night Waking Officer, you will have the responsibility to ensure that the children and young people in your care are safe.

This is a waking night, 52-week post which requires staff to be alert and observant at all times. In addition to regular checks on the children and young people you will be assigned additional tasks which might include administration and laundry.


Are you ready to make a real and lasting difference? Would you like to be part of a team committed to ensuring that our children and young people achieve their full potential?

What our client would like from you:

  • Emotional resilience
  • Flexibility, resourcefulness
  • A strong ‘can do’ attitude
  • Effective communication skills
  • Previous experience in a special needs environment for at least 2 years would be desirable but not essential as full training will be given to candidates who can demonstrate that they possess the skills required to be successful and a desire to learn.
  • Hold a Level 3 Diploma in Child or Young Person’s Work Force. Again, not desirable but if you do not hold this qualification then experience with special needs would be essential.

If you would like to find out more or if you have specific questions to ask before making a decision, please call me on the above number.


As a valued member of staff, you will be able to chart your long-term career along defined pathways (from Support Worker to CEO), each path providing you a fulfilling work environment and support from a world class organisation to achieve your professional goals. We want to invest in you to achieve the next step in your career, so you can continue to make a difference in people’s lives.
