Are you interested in a rewarding career working as a Residential Care Worker within the Children’s Residential Service at Belfast Trust?

We are now recruiting for Band 5 Residential Care Workers, with a variety of contracts available Trust-wide.

As a Residential Worker you will work as a team member in the running of the home. You will promote the welfare and safety of young people from a trauma informed perspective based on their needs, individual crisis support plan and care plan.

The profile of many children and young people in residential care have experienced multiple adverse experiences in childhood, and can present with difficulties, including increased levels of anxiety, poor emotional self-regulation, impulsivity, hyper vigilance, interpersonal and relationship difficulties, and associated behavioural difficulties, for example, self-harm, substance misuse and aggression.

Direct work with the children and young people is fundamental to these roles, and you will be supporting them to reach their full potential. These roles are challenging, but equally rewarding:

“When you see that glimmer of hope in the young person, when they move on, how rewarding it is when they come back and say we had a great time within Residential – that means the world to us.” – Gary, Residential Care Worker, Belfast Trust Multiple posts are available within the following roles:

Residential Care Worker – predominantly waking nights
