At Living Waters Services, we are always looking for talented people to join our team. If you are committed to helping young people achieve their full potential and you are reliable, flexible and loyal then we want to hear from you.
We are offering full time, part time or relief roles, for those who want a little more flexibility. Career progression and training are part of the package.
At Living Waters Service we aim to recruit the best person for each vacancy and any offers made will be based purely on objective assessment methods. We are committed to employing people that are not only qualified for the role but people who also have a passion for helping young people achieve thier potential.
We are committed to promoting the welfare of young people and keeping them safe. To enable us to safeguard our young people, our vetting process requires all applicants who are successful at interview to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Services check, and for 3 years of satisfactory employment and education referencing, as well as a character reference to be completed prior to any commencement of employment. For applicants who may have lived outside of the UK for 6 months or more, the candidate will be asked to complete the relevant checks equivalent to those carried out by the DBS.
In line with The Asylum and Immigration Act 2006, we will only accept applications from candidates who have the legal right to work in the UK.
We are also committed to equality, valuing diversity and working inclusively across all our activities. We aim to have a workforce that represents a variety of backgrounds and cultures and can provide the relevant knowledge, abilities and skills for our organisation.
If you are not on the DBS update service we are required to conduct our own Enhanced DBS, which requires us to know your address history going back 5 years.
All of our posts are covered by the Disqualification from Caring for Children Regulations (1991). You are therefore required to complete this section before you can be considered.
As some of the activities and support sessions involve travelling with the young people, for food shopping, appointments etc, a driving license and access to a car are desirable but not neccessary.
If Yes - Please note that transporting young people, where applicable, will require you to have Business Insurance.
The service operates over 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Staff will work on a LIVE-IN shift based rota system.
LIVE-IN means that you will work and sleep in the young people's home. One full day (incl sleep-in) equates for a single shift.
For example - A single shift means you start at 8am and finish at 8am the following day (8am -
11pm working hours then 11pm unti 8am sleeping in hours).
You can opt to work, one week block (Monday 8am until following Monday 8am ), multiple weekdays i.e three days in a row, Weekends (Friday
8am until Monday 8am) or bank holidays; which will all involve sleep-ins.
You can opt in to more shifts or less shifts each month, meaning that you choose when you work.
*Please note that hours are reflective of a typical shift pattern – hours may differ based on the support needs of the young people
If you are successful at interview stage we will need proof that you have a right to work in the UK. This means we will need to see an original valid UK/European passport, residency permit or a full birth/adoption certificate with an official document giving your National Insurance number. For further guidance on which documents we can accept, see the Home Office guide.
You are also required to provide two documents which prove your current address for us to complete the DBS check. These original documents will generally need to be less than 3 months old and can include drivers license, bank/building society statements, council tax letters or utility bills (not including mobile telephones). You may wish to refer to the Government list to ensure the documents you intend to bring are suitable. Note that if you are on the update service we will still need one proof of address.
We will need to see original copies of education certificates for the courses you have referred to above, and any other certificates going back three years for courses / training which are relevant to the position you are applying for.
We also need to see an official form of photo ID – such as a passport or driving license (full or provisional). Please ensure you have all of these documents together as we will expect you to bring these with you if you are invited to interview.
Please read carefully the statements below and sign to confirm your agreement:
